The annual competitions recognizes the very best in visual merchandising point-of-purchase campaigns for brand marketers, retailers and agencies.

Artisan Complete took home 14 statuettes at last week's POPAI Outstanding Merchandising Achievement (OMA) Awards Gala honouring the most innovative and effective marketing at-retail programs which lift sales and make products memorable and enticing to consumers.

Competing for the coveted gold statuettes, OMA displays are judged based on the display's objectives, design and engineering, shopper engagement, retail experience and sales and brand performance results. Currently in its second year, awards were also handed out at POPAI's Digital Signage competition - acknowledging excellence in retail digital signage campaigns. Digital Signage scores are based on the spot's ability to increase sales, obtain retail placements and work strategically to position the brand at the point of sale.

"Our in-house designers and production staff have created solutions that connect with consumers and motivate them to make a purchase in-store," states Director of Sales & Marketing, Kris Matheson. "We are proud to be recognized in this prestigious competition for their outstanding work."

Artisan Complete won 13 OMA awards for their temporary, semi-permanent and permanent point-of-purchase display designs and manufacturing. The company also picked up a Digital Signage award for their content design and production.

This year's POPAI's (The Global Association for Marketing At-Retail) OMA Awards were held in conjunction with GlobalShop 2008, at McCormick Place in Chicago. The tradeshow showcases the latest in retail strategy, design and technology.
