Bonnier’s SkiingBusiness.com and Skiing Magazine are now accepting nominations for the 2012 Skiing Business Industry Awards. The awards serve to recognize and acknowledge shops, employees, and sales representatives that continue to improve the ski industry. Nominations for outstanding ski industry leaders will be accepted November 28 to December 9, online at SkiingBusiness.com/nominations. Categories include: most knowledgeable retail staff, best retail vibe, best retail marketing practices, best sales rep accessibility, and best sales rep presentation.
“It’s important that we recognize the best shops, sales reps and shop employees in the industry,” says Ryan Dionne, Skiing Business editor. “It validates their hard work and helps others learn by example to improve their own business.”
A new addition this year is the Shop Hero Award that will be given out to three retail shop employees. Nine finalists in this award category will post videos to SkiingMag.com describing why they deserve to be a Shop Hero. Skiing Magazine readers can vote online for their favorites and winners will be sent on an all-expenses-paid trip to Wyoming’s Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (courtesy of SkiingBusiness.com and SkiingMag.com).
Winners will be announced on January 26th at the Skiing Business Industry Awards party by Hestra at the 2012 Snowsports Industries America Snow Show in Denver.
