UK: The date of this year’s National ACR and Heat Pump Awards, scheduled to take place in June, has now been pushed back to October due to the coronavirus.
The annual awards – originally scheduled to take place at the Midland Hotel, Manchester, on January 21 – had been postponed until June 10. With the continuing uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus restriction, the event has now been postponed for a second time to October 20.
Organiser Juliet Loiselle, publisher of ACR Journal and Heat Pumps Today explained: “With the current roll-out of vaccines, the country is on track to have received final immunisations by September. With this in mind we felt it only right and proper to ensure safety first.
“Our judging process is so rigorous, including a full day meeting with the judges, that to be fair to all entrants, we want to be sure we can still facilitate this. We also believe, by moving the date onwards, entrants can spend this valuable time focusing on their businesses and revisit the entrants process later in the summer.
“We look forward to seeing you all again at the Midland Hotel, Manchester on the 20th of October.”
