The 19th Awards lunch takes place at the Park Plaza in Westminster

The 19th annual Builders' Merchants Awards are being officially launched today (Wednesday April 22).

The industry's longest established awards event will take place on Friday 20 November 2020, at The Park Plaza Hotel on Westminster Bridge, as always magnificently supported by our partner the Builders Merchants Federation.

To reflect our changing industry, the event will feature two new award categories - Diversity and Inclusion in Merchanting and the Sustainable and Environmental Initiative of the year. 

View the full list of 22 categories here.

Nomoniations for each award can now also be sent in.

With many of you working at home because of Coronavirus, why not start thinking about your awards entries now? Has your company been helping its community battle the disease? Do you know a branch manager who has been going above and beyond to ensure customers still get products during the crisis? Has your merchant shown the initiative when it comes to its digital and website offering to customers?

The nomination deadline of August 28 2020, may seem a fair while away, but get your entries in early and make the most of any extra time you may have. Remember that each entry must be no more than 850 words.

If you have any questions about your entry, the nomination process, booking a table, or any other element of the Builders' Merchants Awards, please get in touch here.

Make sure to book your place early, taking advantage of our early bird rate!
