The G12 Awards for the glass and glazing industries are now open for entries at www.g-events.co.uk. Following the success of the G11 Awards Presentation & Gala Dinner at the world-class Hilton on Park Lane Hotel last November, the G-Awards are proud to announce that this year’s event will be back in the Grand Ballroom on Friday 23 November.
The G-Awards are the only ceremony to offer public recognition to glass and glazing companies who display excellence in their fields. The Awards are free to enter and are open to all companies in the industry regardless of type, size or budget. Organiser Tony Higgin says, “I was encouraged last year to see entries from a range of different companies and would urge people who would not normally enter to do so. Regardless of some perceptions, smaller companies are not disadvantaged when it comes to judging Awards and often display outstanding qualities. We welcome, indeed encourage, entries from all company types and have designed the categories so that there is something suitable for everyone. Unlike other industry awards, we don’t charge an entry fee.”
There are twelve categories to enter and they are:
- Apprentice Of The Year
- Component Supplier Of The Year
- Conservatory Installer Of The Year
- Customer Care Initiative Of The Year
- Energy Efficiency Initiative Of The Year
- Fabricator Of The Year
- Glass Company Of The Year
- Health & Safety Initiative Of The Year
- Installer Of The Year
- Promotional Campaign Of The Year – Retail
- Promotional Campaign Of The Year – Trade
- Public Sector Project Of The Year
The closing deadline for entries is Friday 7 September but it is never too early to start preparing entries. The G12 Awards are independently judged and all finalists are invited to attend the glittering G12 Awards Presentation & Gala Dinner in November, an event which last year attracted over 550 guests. The G12 Awards is supported by a number of market-leading companies and this year’s main event sponsors are FENSA, FIT Show, Glass & Glazing Federation, Glassolutions, Group Homesafe, SGG Planitherm® and VEKA.
