Once the nomination period has closed, the candidates will be whittled down to a shortlist and the industry will be invited to vote on the winners – with distributors voting on the suppliers’ categories and suppliers choosing the winners of the dealer awards to ensure impartiality.

The victors will then be announced at a gala ceremony on Wednesday 30 November at the Underglobe, underneath Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in the heart of Central London.
