Menasha Wins 12 Design of the Times (DOT) awards

October 02, 2017

Menasha, the industry’s largest independent, retail-focused packaging and merchandising solutions provider, was recognized with 12 Design of the Times (DOT) awards by the Path to Purchase Institute (P2PI).

The DOT competition celebrates the most successful, creative, and innovative in-store displays and digital activations throughout the year. This year, there were hundreds of entrants in 13 retail channels, including consumer electronics, convenience, dollar, drug, home/hardware, liquor, mass merchandisers, office supply, pet, specialty, sporting goods, supermarket/grocery, and warehouse. 

Entries are judged based on how well they execute the four C’s of effective in-store and digital activation: command attention, connect with the shopper, convey information, and close the sale.

Menasha took home awards in seven categories: convenience, dollar, drug, mass merchandisers, specialty, supermarket/grocery, and warehouse. There were over 100 finalists in this year’s competition.

“We are extremely honored to receive 12 DOT awards at the Path to Purchase Expo (P2PX),” said Dennis Bonn, Menasha vice president of marketing. “Being recognized affirms the impact Menasha continues to make in our industry through continuous innovation and creative retail solutions.”

Final judging to name bronze, silver, gold, platinum, and “Best of the Times” awards took place during the P2PX at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Chicago. Winners were announced at the DOT reception and ceremony on Wednesday, September 27.
