IPA Retailer Choice awards recognize stores, manufacturers

The International Prom Association's 8th annual Black Tie Gala and Retailers Choice Award program, held in early August during Atlanta's National Prom market, presented awards of merit to reps, stores and manufacturers in 29 categories ranging from Prom Manufacturer of the Year to Breakout Retailer of the Year.

The annual program supports the International Promise Foundation, which was created by the IPA to address some of the most pressing issues facing teen communities, including supporting the teen family members of troops, helping to promote a safer atmosphere for learning in schools, or simply bringing attention to concerns that weigh on today’s teens.
