With just four days left to submit entries for the BikeBiz Awards, time is running out to make your opinion heard in any of the brand new categories for 2018, including a celebration of gender diversity in the industry with the Cycling Industry Woman of the Year award.
“The BikeBiz Awards are back and bigger than ever in 2018," said BikeBiz editor Hayley Ferguson. "After some serious deliberating over the categories, we’re very excited to debut five brand-new awards, one of which will provide a well-deserved tribute to all of the hardworking and passionate women fighting to have their voices heard in this male-dominated industry. We sincerely hope you can come and celebrate with us on the night!”
Along with continued accolades such as Specialist Retailer, Innovation from a Newcomer and Best Marketing Team, five new awards have been added this year that include:
Service to the Cycling Industry
Cycling Consumer Magazine of the Year
Cycling Consumer Website of the Year
The London Bike Show Award
The prestigious tenth anniversary awards will be taking place on February 23rd, 2018 at ExCeL London!
Co-located with the London Bike Show at The Bridge, this prestigious event is firmly established as the cycling industry’s foremost opportunity to reward and recognise innovation and commitment to the business of bikes. This year, there are a few key changes to the awards process, as well as five brand-new awards.
Stage 1: Nominations
During Stage 1 we are asking members of the cycling trade community, and prosumer cycling enthusiasts, to nominate their partners, customers, colleagues and friends in relevant categories. We won’t be asking for a lot of information at this point; we just want to know who you think should be in the running to be a winner at the BikeBiz Awards 2018.
Nominations will close on November 23rd.
Stage 2: The Shortlist
The BikeBiz team will contact nominees for more information about why they should win the award. This will then be released as a shortlist, based on the number of nominations received, and the information we receive.
The information we will be asking for is listed on our website as the judging criteria.
Stage 3: Vote for your winner!
BikeBiz is all about the industry, and as such it’s important to us that our awards are the industry stamp of approval and recognition of exceptional work. This year we’ll be asking the industry to cast their votes for winners through our website. Anyone in the industry can get involved, creating an inclusive and transparent awards system.
Stage 4: The Big Reveal!
The winners will be announced live at the BikeBiz Awards on the February 23rd. Don’t forget to get your tickets early as numbers are limited!
