by | May 25, 2021 | Associations, Community, News | 0 comments

Time is running out to enter the GIMA Awards, taking place on 11 November at Celtic Manor. The deadline to put a product innovation forward for the 2021 awards is Friday 28 May.

Making its return in late 2021, this year’s event will feature all of the usual categories – including the GCA Supplier of the Year (GCA), Gardenex Export Achievement and the Sword of Excellence (last won by Primeur in 2019) – as well as a new Sustainability award which will recognise a product, business initiative, or wider business ethos that demonstrates how suppliers are successfully driving the sustainability agenda.

Vicky Nuttall, GIMA director said: “Time is running out for those suppliers who want to enter the 2021 GIMA Awards, so we are urging interested parties to get their entry forms in as soon as possible to avoid missing out.

“Whilst the COVID pandemic resulted in the event being cancelled for the first time in its 40-year history in 2020, the industry has not stopped. Suppliers have stayed busy creating exciting new product, marketing and merchandising innovations throughout the 2020 and 2021 season. These launches and initiatives are what will be celebrated in a special glittering night of awards – the first of its kind to relaunch post-lockdown. The result being an evening full of long-awaited reunions, networking and merriment.”
