Rewarding performance in Romanian E-Commerce for 15 years!

The 15th annual edition of the eCommerce Awards Gala will take place on the evening of the 2nd of November 2020, at the National Theatre of Bucharest, when we are expecting the E-Commerce & Digital Marketing elite to congratulate the participants during the GPeC Awards Ceremony.

GPeC Awards are among the most wanted trophies in the Romanian online community, because our awards are based on merit, based on repeated evaluation of the online shops signed up for the GPeC Competition and therefore they are the result of sustained effort, responsibility and actions.
