Following the government’s recent announcement outlining the roadmap for exiting lockdown, we are confident that this year’s BMJ Industry Awards will be able to go ahead in its traditional format on Friday 26 November 2021.

Subject to circumstances, we look forward to welcoming the very best from across the builder’s merchant sector to the awards gala taking place in the heart of London towards the end of the year.

Builders Merchants Journal editor-in-chief Fiona Russell-Horne comments: “We are an industry that thrives on connection and I’m sure that everyone will share my excitement at the prospect of reconnecting with peers, networking and celebrating the collective successes of the past twelve months.

“Of course, numbers could still be limited so we would encourage anyone that wants to be a part of this hotly-anticipated industry event to get involved early to secure their place.”

Entries open Monday 1 March

Entries and nominations for this year’s scheme open on Monday 1 March and merchants, suppliers and professionals alike are invited to put themselves in the running to win a coveted accolade.

This year’s awards line-up features a number of new additions that have been designed to reflect the eclectic nature of the industry, which will recognise everything from small, independent, multiple and national merchants to decorating, landscaping and bathroom suppliers.

A comprehensive list of categories is available on the BMJ Industry Awards website.
