The new date for the H&V News Awards is now 19 April 2011, taking place at the Grosvenor Park Hotel in London, following the announcement of the timing of the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton..
The awards were previously due to take place on the evening of 28 April, but hotel bookings have already increased sharply for that night.
As many of those attending the awards require overnight accommodation, the new date has been arranged as the best alternative, avoiding bank holidays and other events that would make booking hotels difficult and more expensive.
“We were faced with something of a dilemma when the royal wedding was announced,” said Dennis Flower, H&V News editor.
“Hotel accommodation is already becoming scarce and the bank holidays around that time present further challenges, so the night of the 19th April was agreed as the next best date.”
The awards are on course to provide the HVAC sector with another evening to remember, with interest increasing and nominations for the various categories continuing apace.
The event will welcome around 900 people to the gala evening,
