In light of the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak, I want to assure you that we at Datateam Business Media are monitoring the situation very closely.

We recognise that now is a time of uncertainty for many businesses operating in the electrical wholesaling sector, and we feel it is our duty to do what we can to minimise the impact on the industry and also offer something to look forward to in these difficult times. Myself and the Electrical Wholesaler Awards’ team have been hard at work over the past few months planning and preparing this year’s event and we truly believe that now, more than ever, it’s essential for us to recognise the hard work and efforts of everyone across the industry.

Of course the safety and wellbeing of our attendees, staff and their communities will always be our number one priority so any decision to reschedule the event will be made based on the latest guidance issued by the World Health Organisation and any restrictions that are put in place by the UK government.

I would like to take this opportunity to assure everyone involved in this year’s EW Awards, and also anyone considering getting involved, that any money invested into the scheme will certainly not lose its value. All of our incredible sponsors who make this vital event possible will continue to receive exposure via all of the usual channels and any tickets that are purchased for the event will be honoured should the event be rescheduled.

We are all facing unprecedented challenges at the moment and when we get through these tough times, it will be incredibly important for everyone in the electrical wholesaling sector to re-establish business relationships, forge new connections and celebrate what has been overcome – and myself and the team look forward to providing a opportunity for professionals from across the sector to reconnect at the EW Awards.
