The trade awards will culminate in a lavish lunchtime event to be held at The Dorchester Hotel, London on Monday November 11th 2013.
“It is our belief that The Progressive Preschool Awards will become established as true accolades for which to strive – reflecting the dynamism in the pre-school market on product, retailing and marketing fronts. We will do our utmost to ensure these are awards of which the preschool industry will be truly proud,” commented Rob Willis, publisher of Progressive Preschool.
The Progressive Preschool Awards include ten retailer award categories, eight product award categories as well as a marketing award.
The nomination, voting and judging process differs for the various categories to ensure that the utmost integrity of all the awards are maintained at the highest level.
All of the product award categories will be judged by an extensive panel of retail buyers. Companies can enter any product ranges that have been launched between July 16th 2012 and July 15th 2013. By ‘launched’ this means on sale at retail in the UK in this time period.
The closing date for product entries is August 23rd 2013.
