Retailer of the Year

ROTY 2018 - Eventbrite Cover

The time has come again to recognize the shining stars in the Hampton Roads’ retail and business community! The Retailer of the Year (ROTY) Awards, hosted by Retail Alliance and presented by TowneBank, is our premier awards gala that recognizes the commitment and perseverance it takes for retailers and businesses to grow and succeed. On this star filled night, nominees will have the chance to win awards across retail, restaurant, service categories representing Southside and Peninsula as well as an overall winner. In addition, we will recognize “Up and Comer” businesses, the people’s choice award (voted by consumers) for LOVEVA businesses, and honor our Lifetime Achievement Award recipient.

Outside of the awards, we have an extragalactic evening planned! ROTY 2018 will be held at the Virginia Air & Space Center, in Hampton, on May 24th starting at 6:00PM with the very fitting theme of “Reach for the Stars”. The dress code is cocktail attire. We encourage our guests to wear something that glitters, sparkles, and shines for fun but completely optional.

Our event will be emceed by the wonderful Cheryl Tan, co-host of HR Business Weekly and owner of Tan Media.

We truly hope you’ll join us for a cosmic night at the museum for honors, amazing food, drinks (cash bar), and live entertainment! All guests will have free range access to the museum and its exhibits, including a ride on the MaxFlight Simulator.
