Gima awards cancelled

Published: 30 March 2020 - Alex Fordham
 

The 40th Annual GIMA Awards have been cancelled due to the Covid-19 crisis.

A statement from the event organisers read as follows: 

"Whilst the health and wellbeing of everyone in our sector is our main concern, it would also not be appropriate to be planning a celebration at a time when many of our members and their customers have had to temporarily close their businesses during their key trading time.

"We would like to wish all our members and their customers the very best wishes at what is a difficult time for everyone, and we hope to be able to celebrate our glorious industry once again with you all again in the near future."
