What are the Future of European Commerce Awards?

To celebrate our 30th anniversary, we are organising the first-ever Future of European Commerce Awards, identifying Europe’s retail and wholesale innovation in the fields of sustainability, digitalisation, community outreach and skills.

Award winners will showcase cutting edge developments in retail and wholesale that illustrate the sector’s transformation and its engagement with local communities.


Who can participate? 

The Future of European Commerce Awards are open to all retailers and wholesalers and associations in Europe 

Each organisation can enter one initiative or project per category.

The initiative or project must be recent (2021/2022) or ongoing.

All entries will be treated equally and will be assessed on:

  • creativity of solution/originality;
  • effectiveness;
  • impact; 
  • support of EU goals on digitalisation & sustainability transition, skills and European way of life;
  • replicability.
