The Tech. Awards powered by Retail Week celebrate the best companies and greatest innovations in retail technology today.

Technology underpins all areas of retail and is a driving force of most retail strategies.

Retailers are relying on their partners and forward-thinking start-ups to help them stand out in a crowded marketplace.

We’ve created categories that reflect this and highlight the importance that technology is having on consumers and the retail space.
