CSP's Retailer Choice Best New Products Contest (BNPC)

CSP is now accepting nominations for its 21st annual Retailer Choice Best New Products Contest (BNPC). The BNPC honors today’s top innovations and tomorrow’s solutions, focusing on the most innovative and inspiring product launches from the past year in the convenience-store industry.

Through April 30, CSP is asking retailers and suppliers to submit their nominations for best new products across several key convenience-store categories from foodservice to technology to tobacco. Up to five submissions per person can be made by visiting here. Each nomination must be for a different product.

After nominations are collected, finalists will be determined by the number of votes they received, along with CSP editors and staff, and then retailers will have the opportunity to vote for their favorites. The finalists with the most retailer votes will receive a Best New Product Award.
