Who may apply?
The form is open to any individual, team or organization whose primary business is in retail real estate and related fields, such as law, research, design and consulting.
Can I nominate myself?
Yes. We accept self-nominations, as well as third-party submissions.
How many nominees can I submit?
A submitter can nominate as many candidates as they wish for this recognition. If nominating individuals, please submit no more than five nominees per company. If nominating a team or company, please include only leaders and key members. We encourage you to limit your entries to those who have made indelible impacts on the business.
Is there a fee to apply?
No. Submission to this, as well as all of our editorial content, is free.
I was selected as a Retail Influencer last year. Can I apply again this year?
To avoid redundancy, we try to vary the Influencers that we profile from year-to-year, however, this is limited to the type of nomination that you are submitting. For instance, if your organization or team was previously selected as a Retail Influencer, you may submit again this year as an individual. Conversely, if you were previously chosen as an individual Influencer, you may be nominated as part of a team or company, this year. In either case, your nomination must include updated information that does not mirror the previous year’s submission.

How and when will the 2023 Retail Influencers be notified of their selection?
Editorial staff will send email notifications to the chosen Influencers and their submitters by March. Due to the high volume of nominations that we receive, only those selected will be notified.
How will the 2023 Influencers in Retail be recognized?
The Influencers in Retail Real Estate will be profiled in the May 2023 issue of GlobeSt. Real Estate Forum, which will be distributed in early May. Influencers will additionally gain recognition on GlobeSt.com.
How do I increase my chances of being selected?
Be as descriptive, yet concise as possible. Sounds redundant, but it’s simple. Provide details on why you think your nominee should be chosen as an Influencer, but leave out the fluff, like marketing content and self-congratulatory comments. Don’t hide the items of importance within pages of trivialities. Support your entry and statements with backup information—we love facts and figures.
