Back to our roots: Builders’ Merchants Awards for Excellence

Published:  05 October, 2017

It’s amazing how quickly time flies! There are only 50 days until this year’s BMN Awards, which is taking place on 24 November at the Hilton Park Lane, London.

Sixteen years on from the launch of the Awards, the scheme continues to go from strength to strength, and still stands as the only industry-wide Awards event dedicated to celebrating the very best practice across the UK’s merchant industry.

Here, at Builders’ Merchants News, we are proud to organise and host the Awards, and having branded as the BMN Awards for the past two years, we have made the careful decision to mark our 17th anniversary by going back to our roots to become the Builders’ Merchants Awards for Excellence.

A prestigious event that has become an established networking date in the calendar, the Builders’ Merchants Awards for Excellence, which will be held on 23 November, 2018, at the Hilton Park Lane, will continue to celebrate excellence across the sector, highlighting some of the most successful merchants and suppliers from across the country.

“As we get ready to shine a spot light on the hard work of individuals and businesses in the sector next month, this seems the perfect time to take next year’s Awards to the next level,” said Nichola Farrugia, Editor of Builders’ Merchants News.

“With the 2018 Awards reverting back to the Builders’ Merchants Awards for Excellence, we feel the name is more representative of the industry as a whole, as it isn’t affiliated with the BMN brand. Just like previous years, we will continue to work in partnership with the BMF, as well as key industry bodies such as NMBS, WCoBM, IoBM and CPA who form our independent judging panel.”

The team here at Builders’ Merchants News is looking forward to welcoming everyone to the Hilton Park Lane, London next month. Good luck to all of the nominees. See you there!
