Nominations Are Again Being Sought for Industry Wide Recognition

Following the highly regarded 2022 awards ceremony in November of last year, the AEMT is delighted to announce that the nomination process for the 2023 awards programme is now officially open.

Building on its past successes, the sixth outing of this sector specific awards scheme will again culminate in a gala presentation ceremony taking place on the evening of Thursday 23rd November at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel in Coventry.

Centrally located for easy access from all over the UK, this venue will also play host to the supporting AEMT Conference – a ‘must attend event’ for all those in membership. The full programme will be announced during the summer, but its focus will again be on providing AEMT Members with help and guidance on a range of topics that will be of tangible value and relevance in the development their businesses.

Then, during the evening, the AEMT Gala Awards Dinner will bring together the electrical and mechanical trades sector in a celebration of business and professional excellence. Recognising and rewarding the achievements of both individuals and companies operating across the maintenance and repair arena, personal endeavour, product innovation, skills training, engineering advancement and commercial acumen will once again be acknowledged and celebrated.

Industry wide engagement

Operated by the Association of Electrical and Mechanical Trades (AEMT) and produced by Touchwave Media, the awards will again acknowledge the skill, effort and sheer dedication of the people and businesses serving this important sector of industry. With the support of our sponsors, well deserved industry-wide recognition will be given to those businesses, who are excelling in their commercial endeavours, and in many cases going far beyond the call of duty, in ensuring the safe and efficient operation of plant and equipment within our critical sectors.

Call for nominations

Entries are being sought for any company, product, application, or individual involved in the supply, installation, service, maintenance and repair of industrial machinery, such as electric motors, drives, pumps, fans, gearboxes, generators, transformers, switchgear, and ancillary equipment. Individuals can put forward entries for themselves and their own company, or they can nominate others that they know merit recognition. The online entry process couldn’t be easier, so anyone wishing to play their part in highlighting engineering excellence should visit the AEMT Awards website – www.aemtawards.com.

Closing date for entries

In keeping with the programme schedule for last year, the closing date for all entries has been set as 5.00pm on Friday 8th September 2023, so for those wanting industry-wide recognition for a job well done, be it for product innovation or project management, for application know-how, or service and repair, they should make a note of this key date.

It is free of charge to enter the awards, but the promotional value associated with being selected as a finalist is worth many hundreds of pounds. And for those individuals and companies fortunate enough to be announced as one of the seven winners during the charged atmosphere of the gala awards dinner, the promotional benefit is even greater.
