Dear all,

I hope that you are keeping safe and well.

As many of you will be aware, this afternoon was set to be an incredible one for the KBB industry. Under normal circumstances, we would have all put on our glad rags and headed to London’s Grosvenor House for an afternoon celebrating the very best that this vibrant sector has to offer.

I wanted to reach out on this day to express my gratitude to every one of you that has supported the BKU Awards over the last five years – whether that be by putting yourself in the running, enabling us to provide this incredible platform by sponsoring the Awards or simply by coming along and raising a glass with us.

While we are unable to all come together to celebrate today, I wanted to assure you that we recognise – and are humbled by – how valuable the Awards have become to the industry. We are working on an exciting way for us to continue our tradition of honouring the industry’s very best that allows even more KBB professionals to get involved, and we look forward to sharing more details with you all in the coming weeks.

In the meantime, thank you all again for continuing to support the BKU Awards and I will be in touch again soon.

Best regards,


Carl Hearnden
Business Manager
