Nominations for AEMT Awards are now open

13 April 2022

FOLLOWING LAST November’s awards ceremony, the nomination process for the 2022 Association of Electrical and Mechanical Trades (AEMT) awards programme is now officially open.

Building on its past successes, the fifth outing of this sector specific awards scheme will again culminate in a gala presentation ceremony on Thursday 17 November, at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel in Coventry.

Centrally located for easy access from all over the UK, this venue will also play host to the supporting AEMT Conference – a must-attend event for all members. The full programme will be announced during the summer, but its focus will be on providing AEMT members with help and guidance on a range of topics of primary interest to the development of their businesses. Staff recruitment, development and retention, the adoption of smart technologies, the commercial value associated with circular economy and sustainability initiatives, and the support networks that can be accessed by those operating in the sector are all expected to feature in the conference programme. A panel of renowned speakers will be invited to share their knowledge and expertise throughout the day in a series of talks and presentations specifically designed to be of tangible value and relevance to AEMT member organisations.

Then, during the evening, the AEMT Gala Awards Dinner will bring together the electrical and mechanical trades sector to celebrate business and professional excellence. 

Industry-wide Engagement
Operated by the AEMT and produced by Touchwave Media, the awards will again acknowledge the skill, effort, and dedication of the people and businesses serving this important industry sector. With sponsorship provided by a host of leading industry names, including ABB, Drives & Controls, EMIR Software, Fanuc UK, Menzel, Musk Process Services, Plant & Works Engineering and Preformed Windings, well deserved industry-wide recognition will be given to those businesses, that are excelling in their commercial endeavours.

Call for Nominations
Entries are being sought for any company, product, application, or individual involved in the supply, installation, service, maintenance and repair of industrial machinery technology such as electric motors, drives, pumps, fans, gearboxes, generators, transformers, switchgear, and ancillary equipment. Individuals can put forward entries for themselves and their own company or nominate others that they believe merit recognition. The online entry process couldn’t be more straightforward, and anyone wishing to play their part in highlighting engineering excellence should visit the AEMT Awards website – 

Closing Date
The closing date for all entries is 5.00 pm on Friday 9th September 2022, so those wanting industry-wide recognition for a job well done, be it for product innovation or project management, application know-how, or service and repair, should be making a note of this key date.

It is free of charge to enter the awards, but the promotional value associated with being selected as a finalist is worth hundreds of pounds. And for those individuals and companies fortunate enough to be announced as one of the seven winners during the charged atmosphere of the gala awards dinner, the promotional benefit is even greater.
