Industry Recommended Professional Awards Winners Announced!

Contributed By: Nick Buick on

2018 was the maiden year of our Industry Recommended Professional program – an initiative where we ask our ~420 onsite managers around the country to nominate the best-of-industry suppliers across a range of categories. The purpose of this program is to identify industry suppliers operating at the highest levels of integrity and merit. Any supplier displaying an Industry Recommended Professional decal can be regarded as coming highly recommended by onsite managers, themselves.

Last Friday, the 19th of October we held our inaugural Industry Recommended Professional Awards Night where we tallied up ALL the nominations, identified the industry suppliers with the MOST nominations in each category, and presented them with an Industry Excellence Award. The night was at Cloudland and by all accounts was outrageously fun; we had 200 guests in total who partied on well into the night. It was fantastic to see so many managers and suppliers coming together in a social setting and just really having a good time. I got around to lots of managers, many of whom I’ve never met in person before, but have had the pleasure of speaking to on the telephone and email for many years, so it was really nice to put faces to names at long last. A great night, I can’t wait for next year’s, the category results are below, congratulations to all the finalists and winners! Here’s some of the highlights:
