Menasha’s award-winning projects were chosen from nearly 300 entrants at the 2016 Path to Purchase Expo

Menasha, the industry’s largest independent, retail-focused packaging and merchandising solutions provider, was recognized with 16 Design of the Times (DOT) awards by the Path to Purchase Institute (P2PI).

DOT recognizes the most effective and innovative in-store activations, retail displays, and marketing campaigns throughout the year. This year, there were nearly 300 entrants in eight retail channels including consumer electronics, convenience, drug, home centers/hardware, mass merchandise, specialty, sporting goods, and supermarket/grocery stores.

Menasha took home awards in four of the categories: convenience, drug, mass merchandisers, and supermarket/grocery. 135 entries won an award at this year’s competition.

“Being chosen for multiple DOT awards at the Path to Purchase Expo (P2PX) is a tremendous honor,” Dennis Bonn, Menasha vice president of marketing, said. “Being recognized for the second year in a row with a platinum distinction shows the impact we’ve made in our industry through hard work and continuous innovation.”

Final judging to name bronze, silver, gold, platinum, and “Best of the Times” awards took place Tuesday, September 20, during the P2PX at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Chicago. Winners were announced at the DOT reception and ceremony the following day.
