Organised by Heating & Ventilating Review publisher, Datateam Business Media, the HVR Awards has served as a platform for the best products, brands and businesses from across the sector for over a decade – and you can be in with a chance of winning a coveted ‘Flamey’ trophy at the 2021 event.
With an all-encompassing array of categories from Commercial/Industrial Ventilation Product of the Year, to Commercial/Industrial Heating Product of the Year, Net Zero Hero, Wholesaler/Distributor of the Year and beyond, you’re sure to find your opportunity to shine.
There are also a few new categories to look out for this year. Of particular note is the COVID-19 Innovation Award. As virus control becomes critical in commercial buildings, this new category seeks entries from HVAC businesses who have taken the fight against COVID-19 to new heights through the introduction of a product, service or initiative aimed at creating safe, virus free spaces for workers, students or public servants.
The newly introduced Heat Pump Product of the Year will recognise innovation in the world of heat pumps which are set to play such a significant role in the decarbonisation drive.
The HVR Awards will also reward the most promising trainee with the Trainee of the Year Award.
With the extra time to enter this year’s scheme, now is the time to start preparing your submissions and gathering supporting documents to put yourself in the pole position.
