The GIMA Awards return this year

by | Mar 2, 2021 | Associations, Community, News, Product News, Products | 0 comments

This year’s GIMA Awards will be taking place at the Celtic Manor Resort on 11 November 2021. Last year’s ceremony was cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic, but with restrictions set to ease by the summer, the annual event will be going ahead later in the year to recognise the best of the garden retail sector.  

Launches and innovations, which have continued throughout the 2020 and 2021 season, will be celebrated with all the usual categories, including the GCA Supplier of the Year, Gardenex Export Achievement and the Sword of Excellence. A new sustainability award will also be joining the line up to recognise a product, business initiative, or wider business ethos that demonstrates how suppliers are successfully driving the sustainability agenda.

Commenting on the return of the GIMA Awards, GIMA director, Vicky Nuttall said: “We could not be happier to confirm that the annual awards ceremony will be back later this year. I know how missed the event has been, so being able to confirm its return is a very special moment for us. 

“This year’s awards may be a little later in the year than we are used to but that won’t stop us celebrating in style! We are very much looking forward to throwing open the doors to Celtic Manor once again and being able to celebrate the incredible hard work that our suppliers have achieved in the face of adversity over the past two years.”
