This is the second year for the Loyalty360 Customer Awards and we were beyond impressed with the strength of submissions.

Loyalty360, The Association for Customer Loyalty, is proud to share the 2018 Loyalty360 Customer Award winners, which were announced on October 25th during Loyalty360’s Customer Expo in Nashville, Tennessee. The awards recognize brands that are building stronger and deeper relationships with their customers in a proactive, meaningful, and—most importantly—measurable way. Loyalty360 awarded finalists in nine categories, each representing a key facet of a brand’s customer loyalty focus. Additionally, winners for the Loyalty360 360 Degree Awards and Loyalty360 Honors were also announced during the ceremony.

Earlier this fall, four brand finalists for each category were chosen by a board of judges comprised of Loyalty360 members, representing some of the top minds in customer loyalty. During the conference, each of the selected finalists delivered a short presentation on their brand’s award entry, after which conference attendees voted for what they felt represented platinum, gold, silver, and bronze winners in each category.
