Given the extraordinary times we find ourselves in presently we have had to make the difficult decision to postpone our Awards and Conference event scheduled for this September. While we realise the actual event was still a way off, in the more immediate future we would be unable to carry out the necessary trade tests and salon visits for the awards assessment process for semi-finalists. We also felt that by September many of our wonderful members’ main focus would simply be on finding their feet and getting their businesses back up and running after such unprecedented circumstances.

Our judging panel will be completing the initial first round of assessments as soon as is feasibly possible (we unfortunately cannot give any timeframes at this stage) where after semi-finalists will be announced. We will then reschedule all trade tests and site visits (for those categories which stipulate they are required) and advise all applicants accordingly.

We strongly believe that things should begin to return to some normality by next year and that ,in fact, by then many of you will be very keen to have a celebration to look forward to, together with our informative conference focused on helping you grow and develop your businesses at a crucial time.

Applications for our Awards are now closed - thank you to all our entrants, wishing you all the best of luck!
