To guarantee the safety of attendees and with no clear government guidance regarding future large gatherings, the UK Roofing Awards have been delayed until 28th May 2021.
The venue will remain at the InterContinental at the O2. All shortlisted entries will carry over for the 2021 awards and nominations for 2021 project submissions will re-open later in the year. All tickets and room bookings will be automatically carried over. For those unable to attend the rescheduled date, refunds can be obtained emailing by firstname.lastname@example.org.
Commenting on the announcement, Chief Executive of NFRC, James Talman said:
“We have taken the decision to delay the awards with a heavy heart. The UK Roofing Awards are the highlight of the year for many in the roofing community. However, the threat posed by Covid-19 is still very much present. Social distancing guidelines are likely to be in place for at-least the short-to-medium term, and avoiding a second peak is very much on everyone’s mind. The safety of the attendees must come first. We, therefore, hope the industry understand why we had to take the decision we did.”
“All is not lost, however. We are planning a bigger and better awards for 2021. We urge roofing contractors to put themselves forward, if they have not done so already, for an award. Coming out of this pandemic we will need all the good news we can get, and what better way to do that than celebrate the successes of our industry!”
“I would like to thank everyone for being so understanding of this decision, in particular our sponsors Radmat Building Products, BMI, SIG Roofing, Axter, Chandlers, Cromar, Cupa Pizarras, EJOT, Fakro, Marley, QANW and Sika."
