Last few seats for Builders' Merchants Awards for Excellence

Published:  11 November, 2013

With just under two weeks to go, there are now only a few places available for the 2013 Builders' Merchants Awards for Excellence annual luncheon.

The event takes place on 22 November at the Lancaster Hotel in London, where the highest achievers in the merchant sector will be crowned as Award winners in front of hundreds of key industry figures.

Each year, the Awards look for the most innovative new ideas and initiatives that have helped builders' merchants, plumbing and heating merchants and timber merchants to grow their businesses and work more closely with customers and suppliers. Each category celebrates the very best in the business, providing insight into just how much hard work and dedication goes on behind trade counters across the country.

Don't miss your chance to network with key merchants and suppliers from within our industry, as well as learning more about some of the best and brightest merchants currently trading!
