Brought together to celebrate the very best that the sector has to offer, the leading figures from the home improvement and gardening industry gathered on Friday, May 10 at The Tower Hotel in London for the 2019 DIY Week Awards.
VegTrug had plenty of reasons to celebrate as it was announced that it had won of the Digital Investment Award. They picked up the trophy because the judges believe that their project is a significant investment in cutting-edge technology, which is being used to move the company forward and attract younger consumers.
The awards event, organised by DIY Week magazine’s publisher Datateam Business Media, is one of the leading occasions in the industry calendar, where guests come together to celebrate the innovative products and forward-thinking retailers across the home improvement and garden sector. This year proved to be no different, as the afternoon provided attendees with the opportunity to network with their peers during the exclusive drinks reception, before enjoying a three-course meal and the awards presentations.
The highly anticipated ceremony, hosted by critically acclaimed comedian Shappi Khorsandi and household favourite Alan Dedicoat, saw 20 accolades presented to the leading manufacturers/suppliers and retailers that were deemed to be award-worthy by the panel of expert judges.
The full list of winners from the event can be found on the DIY Week Awards website.
Following the success of the event, publication and event manager Sallie Payne said: “The award winners at this year’s event are great advocates for our thriving industry. I would like to thank everyone who entered, as well as our judges, those in attendance and the sponsors of the event – without your support, the DIY Week Awards would not be possible.”
