I. Durable category

These in-store displays are generally used for a period longer than 6 months. This year Béflex’s jewellery display for Liora won the bronze medal, which was set up at OMV petrol stations. Coca-Cola HBC Hungary’s contour bottle display was the runner-up and the company’s fridge-shaped Coke&Meal display won the gold medal: on the shelves of this display not only soft drinks were displayed as Barilla pastas, sauces and herb plants added something extra to the shopping experience in SPAR stores.

II. Small-size tools category

These marketing tools are of maximum 1x1x1m size, mostly countertop displays, shelf flags and other shelf decoration belong to this category. Pick Szeged’s Snack sausage offering solution won the bronze medal. The silver medal went to proMission Marketing Kft. for their Wrigley Airwaves Cool bridge. Coca-Cola HBC Hungary won in this category too: the company’s Bottle Serve Tray countertop display is used in Horeca units and targets whisky drinkers.

III. Non-durable category

These POS tools are typically used in a promotional period or seasonally; usually they are made from paper or corrugated board. In this category Coca-Cola HBC Hungary’s Naturaqua Activation Wall, which introduces the PlantBottle™ technology, walked away with the bronze medal. The silver medal was given to Coca-Cola HBC Hungary’s X-Mas Truck display. Category winner: Nestlé and OSG Form’s giant, circus-themed installation.

IV. Digital category

Digital content appears on digital devices used by consumers; they inform them or call their attention to something. Digital signage solutions can strengthen a brand and motivate customers for interaction, at the same time also improving the shopping experience with their added value. Bronze medal winner: REON Digital Kft.’s website for the SPAR Frette loyalty promotion, which was launched in the summer of 2014. Both the website’s design and its content reflected the premium quality offered by the Frette brand. SPAR and Senso Media won the silver medal with their virtual hostess promotion for the retail chain’s meat processing plant. As part of this digital towers were set up in stores, through which SPAR’s meat expert Zsolt Vas gave customers a recipe in exchange for a smile. The category’s winner also turned out to be the Display of the Year: the Béflex digital interactive counter for Nespresso helped customers to select the perfect cup of coffee. Hungarian category winners qualified for the virtual POPAI Global Awards competition, the results of which will be announced at the GlobalShop trade show in Las Vegas, on 23-25 March 2016.
