NEW categories for the ERT Awards 2022!

Entries are OPEN for the ERT Awards 2022, bringing you all the usual categories and opportunities to get involved. But this year, we have introduced THREE new categories!

On the retailer side, you will notice the Best Independent Kitchen Retailer Showroom award is new, plus the Best Independent Electrical Retailer Shopfront award.

The Best Independent Kitchen Retailer Showroom trophy will be awarded to an independent kitchen retailer that offers a unique showroom and utilises its space and kitchen displays to proactively drive sales forward. Demonstration of products in innovative, high quality room settings is essential.

While the Best Independent Electrical Retailer Shopfront will be an independent retailer that offers unique and eye-catching window displays and uses its shopfront as an extension of its instore space – to grab people’s attention, promote products/services or for marketing purposes. Picture evidence in this category is a must for our judges!

On the manufacturer side, the Best Industry Distributor award is also new. This will be awarded to a supplier/distributor that has demonstrated effective order fulfilment, has proved to be a key link between retailers and brands, and contributed towards mutual business growth.

So if these new categories, or indeed any of the usual categories, take your fancy, now is the time to get your entry statement sent in. Be creative and be different, especially if you’re going for the Retailer Shopfront award – show our judges examples just how innovative your shop displays are!

Of course, all the key awards categories will return for 2022…
