Now in its twelfth year, the ERT Awards brings together retailers and suppliers to recognise excellence across the electrical retail industry.

Last year’s event was the first time the Awards was combined with ERT’s Turning Point Live! – an exciting, new one-day event and a true, one-of-a-kind occasion in the industry calendar.

Taking place on 7 October from 9.30am at the Grand Connaught Rooms in London’s Covent Garden, Turning Point Live! will shine a light on best practice in the electrical retail sector.

It will be a stimulating morning of conference- style sessions, featuring proactive electrical retailers sharing their experiences, and manufacturers with their advice on new opportunities to navigate the difficulties currently faced across the industry to ensure a healthy future.

This will be followed by lunch and a drinks reception before the ERT Awards gets under way!

Who can enter the Awards?

The ERT Awards is open to all retailers and suppliers of electrical goods and services based in the UK and Republic of Ireland and it is completely free to enter.

What are the categories?

Some changes are afoot ahead of this year’s event to give a variety of retailers a fair chance to be rewarded depending on their activities, and whether it’s for their business as a whole or a specific part, such as their website or their best salesperson.

Similarly, some new awards on the manufacturer side have also been introduced. This gives attendees a real chance to come together and celebrate the work they do together; after all, a strong partnership between manufacturer and retailer helps to ensure a positive outcome all-round!

Remember, keep an eye out on the main ERT website – – and ERT’s Twitter – @ERTonline – for more information and all the latest updates.
