Oettinger Davidoff is proud to announce this year’s Davidoff Golden Band Award winners. The company will honour and acknowledge its best of the best retailers and partners from around the globe with festive events in several countries worldwide.
Oettinger Davidoff reveals the winners of the Davidoff Golden Band Awards 2021. Given the impact of the pandemic on international travel, the company will not hold one global and unifying Golden Band Awards ceremony as planned, but will celebrate the winners of the Davidoff Golden Band Awards 2021 locally, hosting festive dinner celebrations for the awarded teams in November.
Beat Hauenstein, CEO of Oettinger Davidoff, comments: “The Davidoff Golden Band Awards are the most important recognition of our company to recognize the amazing efforts and achievements of our key partners around the globe that drive our joint success of the Davidoff brand. We are very proud and pleased to announce the winners of our Golden Band Awards 2021 today, and we look forward to celebrating the best of the best from our global Davidoff family of retailers, partners, appointed merchants and distributors at the Golden Band Awards events in their respective countries.”
Luc Hyvernat, SVP Chief Commercial Officer, adds: “It is thanks to the untiring dedication and passion of our retailers and partners that we can continue to grow our Davidoff footprint around the globe and delight and surprise our aficionados with unique brand, shopping and cigar experiences.”
This year, Oettinger Davidoff awards the country winners for “Davidoff Best Performance” and for the US also for “Davidoff Best Growth”. New awards include “Davidoff Best Appointed Merchant/Partner of the Year Award” as well as “Davidoff Best Brand Building of the Year Award”.
