Just a month to go until the ERT Awards and ERT Turning Point Live!

One ticket gets you into both industry defining events on October 1 in London

There’s now just one month to go until ERT Turning Point Live! takes place in central London.

The event, which incorporates the ERT Awards 2018, is on October 1 at the Grand Connaught Rooms in Holborn and one ticket guarantees attendance at both events.

And today (Friday, August 31) is the last day that attendees can book and pay by invoice. After today, you can still pay by credit card.

“We’re getting really close to ERT Turning Point Live! now and it’s shaping up to be a fantastic day of real case studies from real retailers,” said ERT editor and event host Sean Hannam.

He added: “They’ll be sharing how their businesses are changing and adapting to the unique challenges of the independent electrical retail market.

“ERT’s ground-breaking Turning Point campaign has been shaking up the sector since its launch last year – and now we’re combining it with the ERT Awards 2018 to create a vital live event that shines a spotlight on the very best retail practice in the industry.”

The full agenda for the day can be seen at

ERT Turning Point Live! takes the ERT Awards event and extends it to become a whole day of Turning Point-themed content. The day will be entirely focused on real retailers and their stories detailing how they’re changing their business.

It starts with a whole morning of conference-style sessions talking to those retailers and highlighting the very best practice and creative ideas.

This will be followed by the ERT Awards Pub Quiz, which will also be hosted by Sean Hannam. This will take place during the full sit-down lunch.

After lunch, the curtain rises on the ERT Awards ceremony, where the winners of the most prestigious trophies in the industry are announced with a flourish and the opening of a gold envelope.

“We’re getting really close to a sell-out now so I highly recommend that anyone who hasn’t booked their seats yet does so as soon as possible to make sure they don’t miss out,” Mr Hannam urged.

ERT Turning Point Live! and the ERT Awards 2018 are sponsored by Panasonic, Miele, Blomberg, Exertis, Hoover, Electrical Safety First, FreeviewPlay, Roberts and Retra.
