BHETA shortlisted for trade association awards

The British Home Enhancement Trade Association (BHETA) has been shortlisted as finalists in three categories of the Trade Association Forum (TAF)’s Best Practice Awards 2016.

The three categories are: Exhibition of the Year Award (for the launch of trade show Exclusively Electrical alongside Exclusively Housewares); Commercial Initiative of the Year (for BHETA’s role in promoting and providing exhibition space at the DIY Global Summit, which took place in London last year) and the Event of the Year Award (for the BHETA-sponsored Innovation Zone at this year’s Totally DIY : Totally Tools exhibition).

The Awards recognise the contributions and success of trade associations and their staff at all levels within the trade association world.

The winners will be announced at the 2016 Best Practice Awards Ceremony on Wednesday, July 6, which takes place immediately after the TAF Annual Conference.

Commenting on the shortlisting, BHETA executive director for DIY Paul Grinsell said: “This is very exciting for everyone at BHETA, especially as all the organisation’s many events are a real team effort, which is why they work so well.

Will Jones, BHETA executive director for housewares, added: “BHETA is dedicated to creating commercial opportunities for its members and most especially. opportunities which bring suppliers and retailers together. It’s great that we are also getting peer group recognition for our initiatives in this way.”
