Said ERT editor Sean Hannam: “It’s great to see so many manufacturers, brands and organisations supporting this year’s awards. I’d like to thank all of our sponsors for getting involved with the industry’s most prestigious awards. It’s going to be a brilliant event.”

This year, for the first time, ERT  has teamed up with leading field marketing agency Gekko for the awards.

Retailers who enter will be judged by a panel of industry experts, but ERT and its research partner Gekko will be surveying hundreds of independent retailers to find out their favourite suppliers, sales reps and products.
