Jackie Tracey, Chair of the Revo Opal Awards Taskforce says “This year’s Opal Awards has once again not only recognised outstanding and unique commercial brand opportunities that retail environments offer, but has demonstrated the collaborative partnerships and dialogue between owners, managers, retailers, brands, agents, agencies and customers in delivering excellent retail experiences for the customer”.

Edward Cooke, Chief Executive of Revo says “Commercialisation is continuing to develop and innovate, establishing itself as an intrinsic part of owning and managing retail environments and destinations. Crucially, it’s the catalyst for future turnover growth, and we’re delighted to promote and support this activity through our Opal Awards programme which showcases the best in the marketplace”.
