2nd Annual TWICE VIP Awards Honor The Best

New York — The nominations were submitted, the voting has taken place, and the selections have been made, so welcome to the second annual presentation of TWICE’s products awards: the TWICE VIP (Very Important Product) Awards.

The TWICE VIPs were determined by the online voting of retailers and distributors, who were asked to identify those products that have made the biggest difference in their businesses. Retailers and distributors were asked to vote on products in specific categories based on product features, product design and value to consumers. Voting was reviewed by TWICE. The products have been sold at retail in the U.S., or were scheduled to be sold at retail, from fall 2013 to spring 2014. The winners in each of the categories and sub-categories are profiled within.

Congratulations to the all the winners and the nominees!

(Note: Full product information, including how they excelled with both retailers and consumers, can be found in the Aug. 18 print issue of TWICE.)
