TTA honours this year’s award winners

TTA has held a highly successful annual Awards night, at which the winners in 17 categories were unveiled and honoured.

The awards marked a return to the Hilton Birmingham Metropole for the first time since 2019 and proved to be a great opportunity for the whole industry to get together once again – to network, to celebrate and of course to pay tribute to this year’s winners.

The evening was hosted by Dominic Holland, who carried off the role efficiently and with considerable sardonic wit.

For the record number of 15 Gold sponsors this year, the awards night was the culmination of their support package, and they all received major exposure during the evening. The full list of Gold sponsors was: Amber Underfloor Heating, Banks & Lloyd, Genesis Global Systems, JACKOBOARD, Mapei, N&C, Palace Chemicals, PCS, Shackerley (Holdings) Group, STS, Topps Tiles, UltraTile, Verona, Warmup and Weber.

As usual, an awards brochure was distributed at the event. This contains details of all the shortlisted entries to this year’s awards, as well as the chair’s introduction and other information. The Awards Brochure is available to view or download from the Tile & Stone Journal website at https://www.tileandstonejournal.com/TTA/mobile/.

“It was certainly a night to remember,” said TTA chair Paul Luff, “capping off a great day at the Tiling show, which I am delighted that so many from our industry found to be useful and enjoyable. I would once again like to add my congratulations to all the award winners, as well as those who got ‘Highly Commended’, and all our Gold sponsors, our judges and everyone else who worked so hard to make the evening a success once again.

“I was particularly delighted to be able to welcome to our awards night Alberto Echavarría and Mireia Llinares of the Spanish trade association ASCER. In my view our developing relations with the trade associations in the tile producing countries is one of the most exciting things TTA is involved in at present, so the fact that they were able to attend our awards was excellent. It was also great to see larger numbers of independent fixers and independent retailers coming along.”

The Awards evening raised a total of £1,525 for TTA’s nominated charity Children Today. Emma Prescott, Charity Director, said: “We’re incredibly grateful to the TTA and all its members for their continued support. We’ve seen a significant increase in the number of people of who need our support in recent times, and events like these, raising much-needed funds, mean so much to the children and families we support. Your donations directly improve the lives of those living with disability and life-limiting conditions – reducing social isolation; giving comfort; providing greater independence and freedom, and so much more. These things, that we can often take for granted, are truly life-changing, so thank you once again from everyone at Children Today.
