G14 Awards Are Open For Submissions

Glass Awards 2013 29.11.13 © Richard Eaton 07778 395888Has your company performed to exceptional standards within the last year? Are you developing new products that push the industry forward? Have you demonstrated excellence within your field, perhaps with a new initiative, training programme or in customer service? If so, you should enter the G14 Awards, now firmly established as the industry’s premier event for the glass and glazing industry. This year’s Awards are now open for entries at and with twelve categories to enter there is something for every type of business, big or small.

Organiser of the G-Awards, Tony Higgin, is keen to ensure that the Awards are as inclusive as possible: “We made some changes to the Awards categories last year and they now include one for the commercial sector, for new product development and an environmental initiative award. The range of categories means the vast majority of companies should find at least one they can enter, and I would like to emphasise that size isn’t everything – SMEs are encouraged to take part. It’s not the size of the budget that counts, but the way in which individual companies use the tools they have to excel.”

Being a winner or a finalist in the G-Awards brings business benefits that money cannot buy. Team morale is boosted, new sales and marketing opportunities created, brand visibility increased on a national level and having a G-Award brings credibility to your brand in the eyes of your customers. As Mark Warren, Managing Director of Lister Trade Frames and a previous Award winner says, “The G-Awards have been the highlight of the year for Listers since 2005 when we won our first Fabricator of the Year Award. Each year the Event just gets bigger and better (and harder to win!) Entering the Awards focuses the mind on what you have achieved over the previous year and then being chosen as a finalist from among the hundreds of entrants across the whole of the UK is an amazing feeling. Winning an Award is simply the icing on the cake.”

There is no charge to enter the G14 Awards, which are independently judged by a panel of experts. Winners will be announced at the G14 Awards Presentation & Gala Dinner on Friday 21 November at the prestigious London Hilton on Park Lane Hotel. The closing deadline is Friday 5 September 2014.
