Following the latest information and guidance from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the UK government, Datateam Business Media has taken the decision to postpone The Vendies 2020, which was due to take place on Wednesday, June 3.
Event director Hannah Dedman comments: “While the entire Vendies team was looking forward to hosting this incredible industry celebration, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone the upcoming event as the safety and well-being of our attendees, staff and their communities is our number one priority.
“We are working hard with the venue and all contractors involved in the awards to confirm a suitable new date, and will keep everyone involved updated as the situation develops.”
As a result of this postponement, the entry deadline will be extended indefinitely to enable more outstanding companies to get involved and a revised schedule for the decision-making process will be announced in due course.
Tickets that have been purchased for the original date will be honoured for the rescheduled date and sponsors will continue to receive coverage via all of the relevant channels for the time being.
There are a range of categories to enter this year, including a number of new additions that have been introduced as a result of the changing face of the market. Entries can be submitted using the fuss-free online form available on The Vendies website, making it quick and easy to put yourself in the running, and as always it is completely free of charge to enter.
Nominations are also highly encouraged so if you know of a company or individual that is going above and beyond and deserves to be honoured, make sure you put them forward.
