Menasha received three gold, five silver and six bronze awards in 10 categories, including: Aisle/Category/Department Redesign, Cosmetics and Fragrances, Drug Store, Food, General Merchandise, Healthcare, Mass Merchandise, Snack Products, Soft Drinks and Supermarket.

Menasha competed in a field of 460 entries from 70 competitors.
“Menasha is honored to have received so many accolades from POPAI this year since the OMA Awards is one of marketing at-retail’s highest recognitions,” said Dennis Bonn, vice president of marketing for Menasha Packaging. “By harnessing the power of retail integration, our team strives to create powerful and effective retail promotional solutions that help our consumer packaged goods (CPG) customers optimally sell, protect and promote their products in stores.”
Displays compete for gold, silver and bronze honors in three divisions based upon length of time in the store: Temporary, Semi-permanent and Permanent. Entries are evaluated on design, engineering, shopper engagement, retail experience, brand performance and sales results. Awards are presented to the most innovative, effective in-store displays that lift sales, make products memorable and entice shoppers to purchase.
The winners were announced on March 19, 2014 at POPAI’s Annual Awards Celebration during GlobalShop 2014. GlobalShop is the world’s largest annual trade show and conference dedicated to store design, visual merchandising and shopper marketing.
