The Paris Retail Awards reward the best innovations in the field of e-commerce and retail. These prizes enable providers of services and solutions to extend their reach and reward the efforts of an entire team.

Several of the winners of previous editions (Criteo, Reech) have notably benefited from various financial or professional springboards after obtaining an Award.
