Entries are now open for the 2017 InstallAwards, which will return for their fourth edition taking place on 29 June in central London.
As always, at the heart of the awards are the outstanding installation projects from the past 12 months, and the people and products that enabled them to shine. With the exception of the Hall of Fame Awards, all awards will be judged by an independent panel of experts drawn from across the industry.
Best Education Project
Best Corporate/Industrial Project
Best Retail and DOOH Project
Best Hospitality Project
Best Venues Project
Best Visitor Attraction Project
The winners of the Project Awards in each of these categories will face each other to compete to be the winner of the new Project of the Year Award.
Star Product Awards
There will once again be Star Product Awards in the Business and Entertainment category groups, but with a slight change for 2017. We’ve decoupled the Star Product Awards from the Project Awards, so products can be entered in their own right. However, we’re still looking for evidence of how products have contributed to the success of one or more installation projects, rather than judging them purely on their technical specs.
People and Team Awards
We’re repeating the successful line-up of people and team awards, introduced in last year’s InstallAwards:
Installer’s Choice: In-House Team of the Year
Marketing Team of the Year
Distribution Team of the Year
Hall of Fame
There will be three new inductees to the Installation Hall of Fame this year:
Grand Prix: this award will be given to a company that has made a major contribution to the industry over a number of years
Outstanding Contribution Award: This award will be presented to an individual who has had a major beneficial impact on the industry in recent years
Lifetime Achievement Award: This award will be presented to an individual who has made a valuable contribution to the industry throughout the course of their career.
As in previous years, these will be chosen by the team at Installation.
We also have a new improved portal for the InstallAwards this year. Rather than having to complete your entries in one go, you can return to an entry any time up to the closing date and amend it, or adding pictures or other supplementary information. Entries are password-protected so you can be confident that they won’t be seen by anyone unauthorised.
The closing date for entries is Tuesday 28 March.
