COMPETITIONS

PAVE Student Competitions

The mission of the Planning and Visual Education Partnership (PAVE) is to support, encourage and foster students and young professionals working in the fields of retail design, retail planning and visual merchandising. To that end we run two annual competitions, offering the students real world experience and recognition. We open the door for entrants to meet leaders in the fields of retail management, store planning, visual merchandising and architecture, and manufacturers in the retail environments industry.

The Student Design Competition is in its 25th year, and challenges students to create a dynamic design space for a retail partner. This international competition has recieived entries from all over the world. Prizes include grants to students and their schools and an invitation to the annual PAVE Gala to be recognized for their accomplishments.

The GlobalShop Student Design Project partners students with industry leading fixture manufacturers and top retailers to challenge students to solve a real-world design problem. The winning teams will see their designs brought to life at an industry trade show.
