EW Awards launches for 2021! 

After making the difficult decision to not host a live event in 2020, Datateam Business Media – publisher of EW magazine and organiser of the Electrical Wholesaler Awards – is delighted to relaunch the popular awards scheme for 2021. 

Since its launch in 2014, the Electrical Wholesaler Awards has firmly established itself as the leading platform for recognising excellence and achievement across the sector. Oorganiser Datateam Business Media is delighted to announce that the Awards are back for 2021. 

Although COVID-19 safety concerns unfortunately meant that the 2020 live ceremony event could not take place, the trophies themselves were sent out to winners across the country, honouring the very best brands, wholesalers and professionals from across the electrical wholesaling industry. With an expertly-curated array of categories, each accolade represents a truly unique and prestigious stamp of approval. 

EW editor Bryony Andrews commented: “After a difficult year for both our industry and the wider world, I am delighted that the EW Awards is set to return for 2021, stronger and better than ever. The COVID-19 crisis has seen the industry embrace new technologies and strategies this year in order to find new ways to connect and do business. I look forward to seeing these lessons learned reflected in entries for the 2021 awards, and, of course, can’t wait for the spectacular industry reunion we deserve on 20 May next year!” 


How it works 

The Electrical Wholesaler Awards follows a simple three step process. Firstly, the industry’s very best will be invited to put themselves in the running by entering via our secure online form. With an array of expertly curated categories up for grabs, whether you are a manufacturer leading the charge when it comes to innovation in electrical goods, a wholesaler whose range, knowledge and service is second to none or a professional whose passion for the industry is clear to see – you can be sure to find your chance to shine! Submitting an entry using our online portal is quick, easy completely free of charge. 

In the spirit of celebrating the collective successes of the electrical wholesale sector, nominations are also highly encouraged – so industry members can also put the spotlight on the amazing businesses and people they work alongside. The Electrical Wholesaler Awards has been serving the industry for almost a decade and boasts a tried & tested two-step process that ensures only the very best pick up a coveted stamp of industry approval. 

Each entry will first face an online vote, with professionals being invited to make their voices heard and be influential in determining the 2021 winners. The entrants will also have their submissions critiqued by a specially selected judging panel, comprised of individuals with extensive industry knowledge and experience. The voting and judging will each hold a 50% weighting in the final decision, ensuring the winners are selected for their outstanding industry reputations and technical expertise. 

The winners, as determined by the rigorous decision-making process, will be revealed at the Electrical Wholesaler Awards ceremony on Thursday 20 May 2021 at the Chelsea Harbour Hotel in London. The live presentation will be a shining display of the very best that the sector has to offer, and is sure to be unmissable for both those in the running and the wider industry.  

Sponsorship opportunities 

Sponsoring the event is the perfect way to showcase your brand to key decision makers and show commitment to celebrating the highest standards of excellence exercised across the electrical wholesaling sector. A bespoke sponsorship package is a great way to tailor the exposure you want to the audience you need, for the right price.
