About

Showcasing the most innovative and successful online retailers, merchants and brands focusing attention on e-retailers who are moving the industry to new standards in excellence and innovation.


Innovation never stops in online retailing. But once a year Internet Retailer’s editors stop, take stock and recognize the retailers, manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors whose innovations and achievements have made the greatest impact on e-commerce. This annual Awards Program recognize the most innovative and successful online retailers, merchants and brands in 13 categories of business-to-consumer and business-to-business e-commerce.

Hundreds of guests representing all segments of the e-commerce spectrum will gather to recognize the year’s top innovators across multiple categories. This year’s awards banquet will take place Wednesday evening, June 7, at the Hyatt McCormick Place Ballroom in Chicago. View 2017 Event Details

It’s only fitting that as e-commerce continues to expand worldwide, so too have our Excellence Awards categories for 2017, giving companies more opportunities to nominate themselves for their achievements in the past year. We’re really looking forward to once again recognizing those web merchants and B2B companies who are passing the torch of excellence, thereby igniting the industry and inspiring their peers. – Jack Love, publisher of Internet Retailer
