One of the most anticipated moments of the conference is the announcement of the Imagine Excellence Award Winners. These individuals, companies and brands will be recognized and honored for their exceptional achievements across all facets of the highly competitive commerce arena. They represent great examples of innovation, outstanding customer experiences, beautiful design, and superior business acumen.
