The Covid-19 pandemic and economic havoc it has wrought has not stopped ICT resellers and suppliers from putting together some amazing solutions and channel support programmes and nothing is going to stop us from recognising their efforts at the 2020 Comms National Awards.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we cannot run a physical awards ceremony this year, but the finals event will be streamed live from London on October 22nd and finalists and everyone gathered in ‘bubbles of six’ across the UK who are keen to celebrate being part of this amazing industry can be assured of a night to remember.

Given that so many people in our industry were furloughed in March and many remained tied to their home offices, the standard of entries this year has been exemplary and our esteemed judging panel will certainly have a mammoth task in the next few weeks determining the winners from such a quality field.

Back in the spring, we acknowledged the phenomenal work people in our industry were doing as ‘key workers’ and we will be rewarding those efforts this year with two special awards. The ‘Keeping Britain Working Awards’ have garnered entries from resellers and channel suppliers all over the country. These range from a small reseller in the Black Country which provided sanitised phones to a local hospital so very ill patients could talk to loved ones, up to a large network provider that gave NHS customers free upgrades, prioritising specialists who needed faster fibre connections to facilitate reliable video consultations.

The number of entries received in the UC and Cloud categories this year echoes the digital transformation taking place across the UK and companies vying for the number one slot in the Channel Support category reflects the growing importance organisations are placing on channel engagement. Overall, the amount of entries received has been astonishing, and we aim to reward and celebrate with our finalists via our glitzy on-line awards event on Thursday October 22nd.

We hope everyone in the industry will join us via a log-in we will be sharing soon. We will also be staging a special winners’ luncheon in London on February 24th, 2021.
