First industry names to come on board to support the May event include Home Hardware Southwest, Zep Commercial and the British Home Enhancement Association (BHETA).

The 2019 DIY Week Awards will take place on Friday, May 10 at the Tower Hotel in London.  

Long-time supporter of DIY Week’s awards events over the years, dealer-owned buying group Home Hardware Southwest has signed up to sponsor next year’s lunchtime event. Chief executive Martin Elliott commented: “Home Hardware is delighted to once again be sponsoring the DIY Week Awards. Within our sponsorship, we are particularly pleased to recognise outstanding new product developments within the industry, which are essential for our retailers and suppliers alike.

“A great deal of work and investment goes into developing new products and it’s great to be involved in the industry awards, which acknowledges the significant achievement for the teams involved.”

He added: “The DIY Week Awards in London are an excellent day out and a key date in the diary for the Industry to meet up.  It’s a great networking opportunity to see familiar faces and meet new contacts”.

Cleaning products supplier Zep Commercial is a first-time sponsor of the awards, whilst industry trade association BHETA has pledged its support yet again for the 2019 event. Home improvement sector director Paul Grinsell said: “BHETA is once again delighted to be sponsoring the DIY Week Awards, recognising new and innovative products that are the lifeblood of our industry.”
