Combell won a Twinkle Award again!

The Awards ceremony was held for the second consecutive year. Not only did Combell receive an Award in the Hosting & Domain category, but several Combell customers also won an award or were awarded an honourable mention. Well done!

Twinkle Awards: for online shops and online shop suppliers

Twinkle awards 2017
The Dutch e-commerce platform has been organising the Twinkle Awards ceremony for many years. This year,, which is intended for Belgian online merchants, organised its own Twinkle Awards for the second time.

The purpose of the Twinkle Awards ceremony is twofold. On the one hand, it is aimed at online shops, and on the other hand it celebrates achievements of online shop suppliers. Twinkle strongly believes that the expertise and services provided by the latter play an important role in the potential success of an online store, and has therefore decided to give separate attention to them. We can only welcome this approach, as we share the same opinion and are happy to participate in this contest as an online store supplier.

Each competitor is assessed on various criteria, including:

  • their performance over the past year
  • their current relevance in the market
  • available market figures and other news

A grand ceremony

The Twinkle Awards ceremony was held on 7 December 2017 during a unique casino evening. During this festive evening, the prizes for online shops and suppliers have been awarded in the various categories, over a sumptuous meal. With Ilse De Vis as hostess and the Paterspand in Turnhout as venue, this had to be a wonderful evening.

The tension was palpable, and not just at the roulette tables, as we were really anxious to find out if we would return home with this fantastic prize for the second time.
