Having been forced to withdraw from staging its annual awards dinner and presentation ceremony last year, due to the ongoing fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic, the AEMT is eagerly anticipating its return later this year.
Originally scheduled for its regular slot in November 2020, following hugely successful events in each of the preceding three years, the Gala Awards Ceremony will now take place on the evening of Thursday 18th November 2021, at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel, Coventry. The associated AEMT Conference will also move to this new dateline, and will be staged throughout the day, prior to presentation dinner in the evening.
Information on the conference, its programme, and speakers, will be available shortly.
The 2021 AEMT Gala Awards
Dinner will once again bring together the electrical and mechanical trades sector in a celebration of business and professional excellence. Recognising and rewarding the achievements of both individuals and companies operating within the repair and maintenance arena, personal endeavour, product innovation, skills training, engineering advancement and commercial acumen will be acknowledged and celebrated.
High Profile Support
Operated by the AEMT and produced by Touchwave Media, the awards will again acknowledge the skill, effort and sheer dedication of the people and businesses serving this important sector of industry. With sponsorship provided by a host of leading industry names, including ABB, Drives & Controls, EMIR Software, Fanuc UK, Menzel Motors, Musk Process Services, Plant & Works Engineering, and Wilson Fans, Pumps & Motors Group, well deserved industry-wide recognition will be given to those businesses and individuals that are excelling in their commercial endeavours.
The following seven categories make up the 2020/21 awards programme: -
• Product of the Year – sponsored by P&WE
• Project of the Year – sponsored by EMIR Software
• Service Centre of the Year – sponsored by ABB
• Supplier of the Year – sponsored by Drives & Controls
• Contribution to Skills & Training Award – sponsored by Musk Process Services
• Rising Star Award – sponsored by FANUC UK
• Lifetime Achievement Award – sponsored by AEMT
Entries are now 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 they can nominate others that they know merit recognition. The entry process could not be easier, so anyone wishing to play their part in highlighting engineering excellence should visit the AEMT Awards website – www.aemtawards.com
– and complete the simple online entry form.
The closing date for all entries has been set for 5.00pm on Friday 10th September 2021, so for those wanting industry-wide recognition for a job well done, be it for product innovation or project management, for application know-how, or service and repair, they should make 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 many hundreds of pounds. And for those individuals and companies fortunate enough to be announced as one of the seven winners during the presentation ceremony, the kudos and promotional benefit is even greater.
