New awards programme celebrates electrical & mechanical trades – call for nominations now open!

Staged on Wednesday 29th November 2017, at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel, Coventry, UK the inaugural AEMT Gala Awards Dinner will bring together the entire electrical and mechanical trades sector in a global celebration of business and professional excellence. Recognising and rewarding the achievements of both individuals and companies operating within this important industry sector, personal endeavour, technical innovation, engineering advancement and commercial acumen will all be acknowledged and celebrated.

Industry wide engagement
Operated by the Association of Electrical and Mechanical Trades (AEMT) and produced by Touchwave Media, the awards will for the first time acknowledge the skill, effort and sheer dedication of the people and businesses serving this large and international sector of industry. With sponsorship provided by a host of leading industry names, and extensive promotional support afforded by the two publications dedicated to this sector – Plant & Works Engineering and Drives & Controls – well deserved industry-wide recognition will at last be given to those businesses, large and small, who are excelling in their endeavours.

The following seven categories make up the 2017 awards programme:-

  • Technical Innovation of the Year – Product
  • Technical Innovation of the Year – Project
  • Environmental Contribution Award
  • Industry Supplier of the Year
  • Contribution to Skills & Training Award
  • Rising Star Award
  • Lifetime Achievement Award

Call for nominations
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 online entry process couldn’t be easier, so anyone wishing to play their part in highlighting engineering excellence should visit the AEMT Awards website –

Closing date for entries
The closing date for all entries is 5.00pm on Friday 18th August 2017. So for those wanting industry-wide recognition for a job well done, be it for technical innovation or application know-how, for environmental consideration 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 charged atmosphere of the gala awards dinner, the promotional benefit is even greater.
