Vendors and partners are strongly encouraged to collaborate with their brand clients on entry submissions in order to ensure that the responses are as comprehensive as possible, capturing the company’s entire customer journey strategy and business objectives.   
 
 
Finalists and Winners  
Four finalists will be named for each of the six awards categories. To complete the judging process, the finalists will be invited to the 2017 Customer Expo, where each brand will make a short presentation of their entry to the audience*. Following the presentations, the audience will vote and Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze winners will be announced during an awards ceremony. All finalists will receive an award at the ceremony. 
 
Additionally, four finalists will be nominated for the Loyalty360 360-Degree Award. In order to qualify for the 360-Degree Award, a company must submit an entry in at least 3 of the 6 categories. Point values will be assigned for Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze in each category to determine the finalists and winner for the overall 360-Degree Customer Award. Suppliers will be recognized based on the collective scores of the clients they submit. 
 
Also, for the first time, Loyalty360 will recognize a small group of brands & vendors for the 2017 Loyalty360 Honors.
