A Celebration of Place is an industry and UK wide recognition campaign to celebrate the good within the industry over what has been an extremely challenging period (Jan 2020 to March 2022).

Despite the difficulties that we have all faced during the pandemic, both professionally and personally, there is a lot to be proud of in terms of how the industry and our people have adapted to keep our places operating and our people supported.  

This campaign was devised by a group of industry experts for Revo to recognise and celebrate the retail industry and will replace the previous Revo ACE, Gold and Purple Apple Awards for an interim period with the view of them returning in a revised format in years to come.  

We hope that the quick and easy entry mechanism will encourage plenty of entries, a selection of them will be showcased on the Revo website for the wider industry over the coming months. We also hope you will be able to join us in celebrating in person at a recognition event, with further details to be released soon.
