Nominations for the 2023 AEMT Awards Are Open

Following the highly regarded 2022 awards ceremony last November, the AEMT has announced 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, 23 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 members. The complete programme will be announced during the summer, but the conference 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 of their businesses.

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

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 its sponsors, a spotlight will be shone on those businesses that 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.



The following seven categories make up the 2023 awards programme:

• Product of the Year – sponsored by Plant & Works Engineering

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.



The closing date for all entries has been set as 5.00 pm on Friday, 8 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 one of the seven winners during the gala awards dinner, the promotional benefit is even greater.

So, what have you got to lose? Just 20 minutes spent completing the online entry form, providing the information and details that you have at your disposal, and which presents and supports your business and professional endeavours, could make you a winner in your industry’s awards programme; the gravitas and promotional exposure for which is both valuable and enduring.
