Companies within the builders’ merchants sector that have excelled over the past twelve months are encouraged to kick-start their business in 2018 by entering the first ever BMJ Industry Awards.

The BMJ Industry Awards will shine a spotlight on the building industry’s most outstanding people, merchants and brands. Those that wish to put themselves in the running, or nominate another outstanding company, should visit the BMJ Industry Awards website and complete the quick and easy online form ahead of the Friday 23 February deadline.

Designed with the industry in mind

Having served the construction distribution supply chain for almost a century, the Builders Merchants Journal (BMJ) has an unrivalled insight into what is integral to the success of the sector and have designed the ground-breaking Awards scheme with this in mind.

The awards are split into three sections to cover the broad spectrum of the sector; ‘Brands’, ‘Merchants’ and ‘People’.

The brand awards cover a whole range of sectors, from kitchen to landscaping, plumbing to roofing and even an award for the best distributor.

Merchants can put themselves in the running for awards that recognise everything from creative marketing campaigns to innovative online initiatives. There are also separate categories for independent and multiple merchants so businesses can be recognised for what makes them excellent, irrespective of their size.

Lastly, but certainly not least, are the people awards. Customer service and sales representatives who continuously go the extra mile and individuals that work tirelessly to raise the profile of the industry have the opportunity to get the recognition they deserve at the Awards.

Each entry, subject to meeting the necessary criteria, will then face a public vote to decide the winner – a factor that solidifies the BMJ Industry Awards as the only awards scheme designed to provide a platform for industry opinion.

Save the date for a celebration of excellence

The inaugural BMJ Industry Awards luncheon will take place on Friday 18 May at The Brewery, London.

The awards ceremony will provide a unique opportunity for the whole industry to catch up and make new connections whilst celebrating the successes of the past twelve months.

Tickets to the luncheon are in limited supply, so those that wish to attend are encouraged to visit the BMJ Industry Awards website to secure their place and avoid disappointment.
