The BIG Show will be held at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City, January 13-16, 2013. Donna Karan, chief designer, Donna Karan New York and founder, Urban Zen, will be the guest speaker for the industry luncheon.

“In this highly competitive industry, it’s important for retailers to continue to evolve with their customers’ expectations, while also thinking outside the box when it comes to innovation and consumer value,” said NRF President and CEO Matthew Shay. “We know we don’t have to look far to find our award winners each year as retailers are some of the most ground-breaking companies in the world, setting examples for other industries in customer service and experience, innovation and leadership. We applaud our winners this year and are thrilled to honor them in front of their peers.”
