Industry celebrates at 21st H&V News Awards

The H&V News Awards showcases innovation and excellence, highlighting all that is best about the industry.

Last night, the industry’s Oscars - the H&V News Awards 2015 – took place at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel.

This year reported record attendance, with almost 1,200 attendees, and a record number of entries (200).

Highlights from the night included Labour MP for the Oldham East and Saddleworth Debbie Abrahams winning the prestigious B&ES Gold Award for her Be Fair – Pay on Time campaign, which raises awareness of the ill effects of late payment.

The award for outstanding contribution to the industry went to HE Simm for its attention to detail, collaborative working practices and professionalism.

HHIC director Roger Webb was also recognised for his contribution to the industry.

BBC Breakfast presenter Bill Turnbull did a magnificent job as the presenter for the evening.

The Twitter Wall also lit up the room again this year as attendees posted their tweets and images during the night. The tweets and all the selfies can be seen by searching for #HVNAwards.

The awards have made a significant step forward after the judging process changed in 2013.

There are now more than 60 judges involved, allowing each category to have its own dedicated team.

This has accordingly created the opportunity for finalists to meet the judges in person and present their case to their judging team to demonstrate their enthusiasm, professionalism and commitment.

The judges were also highly appreciative of the chance to ask questions about the entries to ensure that the most deserving candidates took home the trophies.

Pipe Center and Climate Center were the headline sponsor for the 2015 H&V News Awards.
