DIY Week Awards 2022: Getting back to live!

Published: 29 November 2021 - Neil Mead

Following the challenges we’ve all faced throughout the last two years, the leading networking event for the DIY, home improvement and garden market, the annual DIY Week Awards, is back with a live in-person awards ceremony for 2022.


Despite all the many  difficulties caused by the coronavirus pandemic during the last couple of years, we still managed pull off an extremely successful and well received DIY Week Awards programme that culminated in a new live-streamed format for 2021, thanks to our sponsors, judges and of course all the entrants. Now we can’t wait to bring you the DIY, home improvement and garden industry’s key awards event back for a live presentation lunch, when the industry will come together once again in order to celebrate the innovation and achievements in all the various segment categories.

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. Thanks to feedback and input from a number of key industry participants, we’ve tweaked the categories slightly for the 2022 awards, in order to better reflect the main areas of interest and ensure we recognise and reward those that are making the biggest difference in these most challenging times.

DIY Week’s awards events, including Britain’s Best Retailers and the Products of the Year Awards, have been at the forefront of best practice, innovation and excellence for decades, but this year’s event is not just about the prestigious accolades. All entries are thoroughly examined and carefully considered by our panels of expert judges, which serves to give the DIY Week Awards real credibility within the industry and makes them truly worthwhile winning.


The event itself is also a prime opportunity to network with friends, colleagues and piers, as well meet with existing and potential new clients. Attended by key figures and companies from across the industry – including pioneering independents, major high street retailers and global suppliers – the DIY Week Awards is the must-attend event of the year. Entries for the 2022 awards open on 1 November until 31 January, with judging taking place in February, before the shortlist is published in March. The actual awards lunch is due to take place in May next year.

Commenting on the DIY Week Awards 2022, 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.

“Our last live event in 2019 was extremely successful and despite all the problems caused by the coronavirus pandemic, our 2020 and 2021 awards programmes were also very well supported. We are now looking forward to welcoming guests back to a live awards presentation event in spring 2022. We’ll be announcing the shortlisted entries and publishing more information and the date of the event soon, so keep an eye on the DIY Week Awards website at for all the latest news and updates.”
