Essential reading for retailers and suppliers in the home improvement market

Celebrating excellence: Introducing The DIY Week Awards 2020

Published: 29 November 2019 - John King

The key networking event for the DIY, home improvement and garden market, the annual DIY Week Awards will take place at the Tower Hotel, London, UK, on Friday 1 May 2020.

Following the success of the DIY Week Awards 2019, this year the DIY Week Awards categories have been expanded to span the breadth of the industry, celebrating both supplier and retailer achievements.

The awards event, organised by DIY Week magazine’s publisher, Datateam Business Media, is one of the leading occasions on the industry calendar, where guests come together to celebrate the innovative products and forward-thinking retailers across the home improvement and garden sectors. And 2020 will be no different, as the afternoon provides attendees with the opportunity to network with their peers during the exclusive drinks reception, before enjoying a three-course meal and the awards presentations.

DIY Week’s awards events, including Britain’s Best Retailers and the Product of the Year Awards, have been at the forefront of best practice, innovation and excellence for decades, but this year’s luncheon is not just about the prestigious accolades; it is also a prime opportunity to socialise and network with friends and colleagues, as well as existing and potential new clients.

The event is attended by key figures and companies from across the industry – including pioneering independents, major high street retailers and global suppliers. In 2019, critically acclaimed comedian Shappi Khorsandi and household favourite – the voice of The National Lottery and Strictly Come Dancing – Alan Dedicoat were on hand to present the 20 awards to the leading suppliers and retailers that the sector has to offer.

Commenting on the DIY Week Awards 2020, publication and event manager Sallie Payne said: “The event is a great advocate of the vibrancy and health of the DIY, home improvement and garden market.

“After a successful event in 2019, we look forward to welcoming guests to the Tower Hotel in May next year. The Awards are now open to enter, so visit the DIY Week Awards website for more.

“We also have an early bird price on tickets available until Tuesday 31 December 2019, so don’t miss out!”
