Organised by Global Conference Network (GCN), the 2017 Awards Awards recognise excellence and exceptional quality in the UK awards sector.
The bronze accolade was for our 2016 event, which was held in Birmingham during Spring Fair. It was organised by Datateam Business Media, which owns Housewares Magazine and its digital partner www.HousewaresLive.net, in conjunction with Spring Fair.
The news was announced at a ceremony on May 12 at Plaisterers’ Hall in the City of London.
Commenting on the achievement, Spring Fair portfolio director Nick Davison said: This is a well-deserved accolade for an event that has gone from strength to strength since moving alongside Spring Fair in 2016.
“We enjoy a close, mutually beneficial, relationship with the organiser as the awards’ attendees are also important Spring Fair visitors. We look forward to supporting further growth in 2018 and beyond.”
Event manager Laurie Marrington added: “Winning a bronze award at the Awards Awards 2017 just goes to show that all of the hard work and dedication poured into The Housewares Innovation Awards has paid off – resulting in the industry noticing and applauding everything that we have achieved. Receiving such a prestigious award is an accomplishment that lets the sector know the Housewares Innovation Awards are both valued and esteemed.”
The Housewares Innovation Awards 2018 will take place on the evening of Monday February 5 at The National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham, during the Spring Fair at the NEC.
