    What is a proposition?

    A proposition is a new, physical or digital (or both) product, service, customer experience, store, new venture or new business.

    A potential winning proposition shows that it meets a real customer need, is unique and has demonstrable impact. All propositions that enter the CEA need to have been delivered to market in the UK.

    What’s the judging criteria?

    Propositions are judged on three areas:

    Customer focus: The proposition needs to address a clear customer need, provide a great customer experience, and clearly consider the end to end customer experience.

    Differentiation: The proposition has features and benefits that are unique and innovative, and have stand out in the market.

    Impact: The proposition has had a large customer, industry or commercial impact on the business.
