CINCINNATI, OH, UNITED STATES, December 8, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Cincinnati, OH – Loyalty360, the association for customer loyalty, has announced the winners of the 2020 Loyalty360 Awards, on December 8 during a virtual ceremony. The awards recognize brands that build more robust and deeper loyalty with their customers in a proactive, meaningful, and—most importantly—measurable way. Loyalty360 awarded finalists in 13 individual categories, representing a vital facet of a brand’s customer loyalty focus.

“With 37 unique brands selected as finalists and roughly 300 initial submissions for this year’s Loyalty360 Awards, the 2020 Awards were the most competitive set of awards yet,” says Carly Stemmer Ivory, Vice President of Marketing at Loyalty360. “This year’s finalists come from various industries and have shared a wide range of loyalty and customer experience strategies, programs, and initiatives in their submissions and presentations.”

Mark Johnson, CEO, Loyalty360, says the Loyalty360 Awards are a crucial piece of our mission at Loyalty360, which is comprised of major brands throughout North America and internationally, as well as technology suppliers to these brands.

“We hear from attendees time and time again that the case studies presented by these finalists are among the best stories of the event, and this year was certainly no different,” Johnson says. “The 2020 Loyalty360 Award finalists have proven their dedication to loyalty through one or more of the most important facets we put forth as this year’s categories. From their internal commitment to the qualitative and quantitative metrics supporting their efforts, these award winners are in the vanguard of customer loyalty and experience.”

Winners for the Loyalty360 360 Degree Awards were also announced during the ceremony.

As a part of the final judging process during Loyalty360’s Virtual Expo this fall, each of the selected finalists delivered a short presentation on their brand’s award entry. After, conference attendees voted for what they felt represented platinum, gold, silver, bronze, and honorable mention (if applicable) winners in each category.

“The interest and variety in this year’s awards speak volumes about the growing interest in customer loyalty and suggest that there is not a one-size-fits-all approach or solution that can define a brand’s success,” Stemmer Ivory says. “Brands’ unique insights and stories are what makes their participation in the Loyalty360 Awards great, and we look forward to their journeys and continued success.”
