After a great deal of planning and much discussion, I am delighted to finally be able to announce the official launch of the PrintIT Awards 2020 and our Platinum Sponsor Ingram Micro – more to come on that next issue.
There are 25 different award categories designed to showcase and recognise the very best in our industry, as well as an additional Editor’s Choice award that will be announced on what is set to be the biggest night out of the year! (see page 26 for more information). The inaugural gala dinner and awards ceremony will take place at the Tower Hotel in London on Thursday 8 October.
The PrintIT Awards are a chance for you to reap the reward your hard work deserves, whether you have been in business for years or months. Entries open Monday February 3 and will close promptly at 5pm on Friday June 5. With the exception of three vendor categories which will be based on votes, the award entries will be judged by an independent panel of specialists handpicked by us based on their knowledge and experience of the marketplace. We’ve designed the awards process to ensure that we reward parties based on their excellence in the industry, the quality of their products and their dedication to service. You can meet some of our judging panel on page 28, the remaining judges will be revealed next issue.
If you’ve got any news about your business to share, would like to be included on our monthly VOX POP panel, have a compelling business success story or simply wish to comment on any industry issues, please get in touch with us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
