The British Institute of Kitchen, Bedroom & Bathroom Installation (BiKBBI) has confirmed that it will be hosting its own awards event following its Parliamentary Conference in February. The BiKBBI said that the awards ceremony is set to be the first of its kind for the industry, and will see the world of installation in the spotlight as it recognises those within the industry who have gone above and beyond the call of duty over the last year.
A total of 10 categories have been confirmed for the event, including 'Installer of the Year' and 'Young Installer of the Year', as well as 'Retailer of the Year (National)' and 'Retailer of the Year (Independent)'. A 'Lifetime Achievement' category will 'salute someone who has significantly contributed to the world of installation over a career lifespan'.
CEO Damian Walters said: “Our 2022 conference is set to be an amazing event, so we felt that now was a great time to get behind an awards ceremony that focussed on installation.
“I think we all now appreciate the importance of installation and the dwindling population of specialists who deliver the service. An awards ceremony that focusses on installation will serve many purposes, from recognising those in the industry now, those who may be considering a career and to continue the job of raising the profile for this often disjointed part of the industry”.
The BiKBBI is offering sponsorship opportunities for all award categories.
