Kingsdown, BedMatch Display Unit Wins Top OMA Award at Globalshop
Mattress producer Kingsdown has announced its new BedMatch retail display unit was named “Display of the Year” at the annual Shop! OMA awards competition during Globalshop, the retail industry’s largest design and merchandising trade show.
It is the highest and most prestigious award presented during the OMA (Outstanding Merchandising Achievement) competition. It marked the first time a Kingsdown display had been honored by the group.
The BedMatch display, which was developed by North Carolina-based Ryan Scott Displays, was named Display of the Year in the permanent display category, which drew 110 entries.
The display unit also received a Gold OMA award for digital interactive displays, which allowed it to be considered for Display of the Year.
“With a complex diagnostic system like BedMatch, the point-of-purchase display is critical, and our partners at Ryan Scott Displays did an incredible job executing the vision we had for this display,” said Frank Hood, chief executive officer of Kingsdown. “The sales results achieved by retailers using our BedMatch system clearly demonstrate its effectiveness, and this fantastic award from an influential retail design and merchandising organization recognizes that.”
The diagnostic system uses 18 statistical measurements and takes more than 1,000 calculations to determine the mattress that provides the correct level of support and pressure relief for the consumer’s specific body type and sleeping position. The winning display unit can be found in more than 200 retail locations around the world.
“Ryan Scott Displays is incredibly proud of this accomplishment. We’re very grateful for the true partnership we’ve developed with Kingsdown and could not have made this a reality without their direct input and collaboration,” said Scott Brevda, president of Ryan Scott Displays. It was the first Display of the Year Award earned by Ryan Scott Displays.
