BiKBBI CEO, Damian Walters commented “We have been delighted but not surprised to the see the increase in entries for the BiKBBI Installation Awards year on year– it’s a testament to the importance of the installation sector to the wider KBB industry, and never more so than with the skills shortage that the industry is now operating in. The efforts of installers, installation managers and installation departments operating within the KBB sector are critical to the success of every business within the industry – manufacturers, distributors, designers and retailers – and therefore its incredibly important that the contributions and efforts of the installation arena of the industry are recognised and celebrated.”
The BiKBBI Awards 2024 winners will be announced at a Gala Dinner ceremony at London’s prestigious QEII Centre, Westminster, on Tuesday 6 February 2024, in conjunction with BiKBBI Awards event partners Fix Radio, Quooker and Band of Builders.
Walters continued “These awards are only possible thanks to our Awards sponsors and those that support the programme by entering either themselves or someone else. It was great to see so many businesses come together in recognition of KBB installation at the 2023 Awards, and to be joined on stage by many worthy winners on the night. We hope to exceed the number of entries this year and to honour even more examples of excellence in our sector.”
