Over 600 individual entries and nominations were submitted in the 2019 BKU Awards and it is now decision time in the only industry awards scheme designed for you and decided by you.

As always, the power lies entirely in the hands of KBB professionals – as who could be more qualified to decide who is the best of the best than those that work in the industry day in, day out? With this in mind, every single vote is absolutely crucial to the brands, retailers and professionals that are in the running – so make sure you pledge your support to those that you believe are truly award-worthy.

The terms & conditions of voting* have also been refreshed to ensure that there is a level playing field for all, making the Awards even more representative of industry opinion.

Voting is quick, easy and free: simply select your winners in each category using the online voting form, provide your details to validate your vote and click ‘submit’!  The deadline for votes is Friday 26 April, after which the votes will be independently verified and a shortlist will be announced on Tuesday 7 May.

Sunshine, comedy and celebration – have you got your ticket?

The next wave of outstanding brands, retailers and professionals to pick up a coveted industry accolade will be revealed at the revamped BKU Awards luncheon – taking place against the stunning backdrop of the Pavilion at The Tower of London on Thursday 20 June.

KBB professionals are encouraged to secure their tickets now to the must-attend event and join industry peers for an afternoon of sunshine, comedy and celebration. As well as being an opportunity to applaud the apex of excellence in the sector, the BKU Awards ceremony is a unique chance to catch up with clients and make those all important new connections – and this year, all the stops have been pulled out to make sure it’s an afternoon to remember!

Guests will also be treated to a billboard of entertainment as the ceremony is hosted by a first class duo (comprised of a critically acclaimed comedian and one of the most recognisable prime-time TV voices) and will feature a bonus round of comedy from a celebrity stand-up comedian, to be revealed shortly.

In addition to the awards presentations and entertainment, ticket prices also include entry to an exclusive champagne reception, a three course luncheon and unlimited beer, wine and soft drinks throughout the afternoon.

Limited spaces are available, so make sure your business is present by booking your table using the secure online form available on the BKU Awards website today.
