EW Awards virtual event announced

Having received a flood of entries from wholesalers, manufacturers and supporting industry figures from across the trade, it is now time for individuals operating within the electrical sector to help decide who deserves to win an accolade at the Electrical Wholesaler Awards 2021. 

Datateam Business Media, organisers of the EW Awards, are delighted to invite the entire industry to join in on Thursday 20 May for an incredible celebration of excellence.

Now more than ever, it is vital that the hard work of wholesalers and manufacturers in the electrical sector – and the individuals at the heart of these companies – is recognised and celebrated.

For the first time in its history, the prestigious EW Awards ceremony will take place on a virtual platform, enabling even more to be a part of this prestigious industry event.

The free-to-attend event will kick off at 4:00pm with an interactive social wall, which you can be a part of by sharing your messages of celebration and congratulations on Twitter using #EWAwards2021  

The awards presentation will commence at 4:30pm, revealing the amazing companies, products and people that have been selected as winners by both an independent judging panel and the industry itself.

 The live stream will be hosted on the dedicated EW Awards website, www.electricalwholesalerawards.co.uk, on 20 May, kicking off at 4pm. No registration is required to attend – professionals are simply invited to log on to the stream, grab a glass of bubbly if they like and join in the celebrations on the social wall.

 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 as leading wholesalers, brands and professionals are crowned as champions in front of the industry’s elite.

EW editor Bryony commented: “I am delighted to have a chance to invite everyone involved in the electrical wholesaling sector to join us on 20 May for the first ever live stream EW Awards. Winning an Electrical Wholesaler Award really means something to those who enter – with the additional benefit of the boost that this brings to their business. The awards are an opportunity for wholesalers and suppliers alike to highlight to the industry their commitment to their customers.” ”

Last chance to vote

Voting will remain open until Friday 30 April, so if you have not yet cast your votes make sure you support the brands, wholesalers and professionals that you feel deserve to lift a prestigious trophy by heading to the dedicated Awards website: www.electricalwholesalerawards.co.uk/vote/.

Entries for the Wholesaler categories, meanwhile, will go before a panel of specially-selected experts. The critique of these judges will be the key factor in deciding who will be deemed to be worthy of walking away from the event as a champion.  

As in previous years, there are three types of award – one for wholesalers, the other for manufacturers/supplier – and one ‘general’ , all with several subcategories such as training, customer service and digital performance, as well as specific product subcategories for manufacturers.

The popular EW Awards, now in their eighth year, celebrate the best products, service and achievements of electrical wholesalers, manufacturers and suppliers over the past 12 months.
