Awards Sponsors

There a few opportunities in the electrical industry where your company can be seen as one of the major players but sponsoring such a prestigious and highly-respected event such as the Electrical Industry Awards immediately raises a company’s profile and gets a company noticed.

Between the launch and the Awards evening, the sponsors’ logos feature on all promotional material.

Well over 300 companies enter the Awards each year. It is an event which is growing year on year and over the past 27 years its recognition is second to none. The evening itself is a great celebration with more than 400 key industry professionals in attendance to network and discover what are the winning people, products, and projects in the industry.

The majority of our sponsors have been supporting the event for many years as they want to be seen to support excellence in the industry, champion innovation and best practice, as well as gain the exposure to the industry through Electrical Times magazine.

Sponsorship includes company branding on:

  • Promotional material including monthly ads in Electrical Times plus monthly emails
  • Stage graphics.
  • Menu cards.
  • Photography backdrop.
  • Listing in the Electrical Industry Awards Review publication.
  • Plus a table of 10 at the Awards evening.
