About the BMJ Industry Awards
Friday 18 May 2018
The Brewery, London

Organised by Datateam Business Media, publisher of Builders Merchants Journal (BMJ), the inaugural BMJ Industry Awards shone a spotlight on the building industry’s most outstanding people, merchants and brands.

“BMJ is the UK’s longest running industry title, serving the construction distribution supply chain for near 100 years. In that time, we’ve learned that the most important part of the any industry is the people and the brands that they promote. The aim of the BMJ Industry Awards is to reflect the massive pool of talent we have out there, celebrating the brands, names and businesses that keep the merchant sector thriving.” – Fiona Russell-Horne, BMJ Editor-in-chief

How it works

The BMJ Industry Awards are split into three sections.

Covering a range of different sectors, from plumbing to heavy sides, timber to landscaping, kitchens to bathrooms, roofing to heating – there is something for everyone.

New, independent and online merchants will have their chance to shine with categories for each, as well as awards for stand-out achievements at a regional and national level.

Designed to recognise those who go above and beyond in pursuit of excellence, the ‘Personality of the Year’, ‘Best Customer Service’ and ‘Best Sales Rep’ categories are sure to be hotly contested.

Brands, merchants and individuals may enter any of the relevant categories and make nominations online. Merchants are encouraged to support brands by nominating them for an award and vice versa.
