Essential reading for retailers and suppliers in the home improvement market

DIY Week Awards 2022 – Tickets still available – Book your place now!

Published: 9 May 2022 - Neil Mead

As we return to the new normal following a challenging period and look forward to holding a live awards presentation lunch once again, it’s to reveal this year’s shortlisted entries in the DIY Week Awards. There are still a few tickets available for this event, the first live awards held since 2019. Book your place now to avoid disappointment…


As we’ve come to expect from this amazing industry, the variety of entries received this year was very wide and the standard extremely high, which gave our panels of independent judges the incredibly difficult task of narrowing them down to just a few shortlisted products and companies.

Thanks to our sponsors: Benchmark Retail Services, BHETA, Bira, DK Tools, Home Hardware and Parcel Pending by quadient.

We held two judging sessions earlier this month, one for the Suppliers category and one for the Retailers. As usual there was a lot of debate around all the entries, which were thoroughly examined, discussed and scored in order to determine the shortlisted and ultimately the final winners. These will be revealed at this year’s presentation luncheon taking place at the prestigious Tower Hotel in London on 20th May.
