Bauer Scores A Hat Trick


Own The Moment Hockey Experience
takes home three A.R.E. Design Awards

It was a night of celebration for Perennial and Bauer at the 2016 A.R.E. Design Awards, held at the Four Seasons in Las Vegas, Nevada. Bauer's hockey experience store, "Own The Moment" was recognized with awards in three different categories, taking home the Hardline Specialty Store 7,501-25,000 sq. ft. Gold Award, the Visual Presentation Award, and the Lighting Award.

The Bauer brand is about helping players perform at their best through a constant stream of technology and innovation. Since creating a store was an entirely new venture for Bauer, it was our job to bring this mantra to life. It's a rare opportunity to build a store model from scratch, and our goal was to help the hockey giant make the transition from being an innovative hockey manufacturer to an industry-leading retailer.

We collaborated with Bauer to develop and manage the complete store design. Together we achieved success that exceeded expectations – truly changing the game of hockey retail. Own The Moment is more than a store – it's a celebration of the Bauer brand, providing an inspiring and educational experience for people of all ages and abilities.

The A.R.E. Design Awards are the industry's largest and most prestigious retail design awards, judged by an independent panel of retailers, designers, and industry journalists. This year's competition recognized 58 projects from 8 countries around the world.

Throw your hats on the ice, folks – we just top-shelved three awards. Congratulations to all for these well-deserved wins!
