April Davis By April Davis | 23 Jan 2019

The 2019 All Star Bash is just around the corner, with the industry bracing to find out who this year’s Top 100 Online Retailers and Category Winners are.

Power Retail’s annual All Star Bash event will be held at Margaret Court Arena on Thursday February 21, with Australia’s most innovative pureplay and cross-channel retailers gathering to celebrate their achievements.

This year, there will be even more awards on offer as the 2019 event will not only recognise the country’s Top 100 Online Retailers, it will also celebrate the top online players in additional categories ranging from ‘Hot Innovator’ to ‘Top Mobile Experience’.

In recognition of how quickly the online retail sector continues to evolve and the growing role that cross-channel customer experiences has in the digital world, the category winners list has been increased from 12 awards in 2018 to 18 in 2019. The full list of awards up for grabs includes:

  1. No. 1 Online Retailer
  2. Top eBay Seller
  3. Top Customer Rating
  4. Top Social Retailer
  5. Top Click Frenzy Seller
  6. Top Online-Only Retailer
  7. Small-Medium Retailer
  8. Speed Demon
  9. Hot Innovator
  10. Site User Experience
  11. Fast Movers
  12. Top E-Commerce Group
  13. Top Email Marketing
  14. Top Native App
  15. Ones to Watch
  16. Top Mobile Experience
  17. Top Marketing Initiative
  18. Punching Above Their Weight

The shortlist and winners from each category have been ranked with Power Retail’s data-driven approach of 2018, as well as additional measures that take into account multiple aspects of a retailer’s performance. According to David Fear, the data analyst at Power Retail, this means more retailers have a chance of grabbing a top industry award for their commitment to the e-commerce sector.

“This year we aim to incorporate world-class analytics to identify key metrics across the retail space, with the greatest depth of retailers being included in the rankings,” he says.

While the finalists for this year’s All Star Bash are still under lock and key, the shortlist will be announced on Wednesday January 30, just in time for the biggest awards night of the year!

Last year, Adore Beauty, Princess Polly, Showpo and Catch Group were among the winners, while cross-channel supermarket chain, Woolworths took out the coveted first place position, cementing itself as 2018’s best online retailer.

The 2019 All Star Bash will be held on February 21 at Margaret Court Arena from 6.30 pm until 11.00 pm.
