The Talent in Logistics Awards 2020 will now take place as a completely virtual live event on Thursday 1st October 2020, confirms the organiser as it also extends the entry deadline for the awards.
The Talent in Logistics Awards this year will be a unique, online event that will be live streamed on YouTube and social media channels, instead of being held in Manchester as originally planned.
“The past few months have presented unusual circumstances, but there is no way that we wanted to cancel or postpone this year’s Awards, especially when we have had such a high standard of entries so far,” says Ruth Edwards, business development director for Talent in Logistics.
“This year, those in the logistics sector have been crucial, and deserve even greater praise and recognition than ever for their efforts,” she continues. “We’re thrilled to be able to do this in a new and different way, that will also help keep everyone safe.”
The livestream of the Talent in Logistics Awards 2020 will be free for anyone to watch and reveal winners live during the online awards ceremony. There will be interactive elements, and winners will have the opportunity to virtually accept their awards. The event will also dedicate time to showcasing and celebrating hard work across the supply chain this year and will share positive stories from within the sector, including those inspired by the Talent in Logistics #ilovelogistics social media campaign.
To enable as many people as possible to get involved and celebrate the sector’s achievements this year, the entry deadline for the Talent in Logistics Awards has also been extended until 24th July 2020.
The awards remain free to enter, and entry forms can be downloaded from the Talent in Logistics website. Award entries consist of a submission of up to 1000 words, along with the option to attach three supporting documents, and will be judged by a panel of sector experts, leaders, and influencers. The shortlist will be announced by early August 2020.
Information regarding the LGV Driver of the Year and Forklift Operator of the Year live competitions and awards will be announced in due course.
“Talent in Logistics is no stranger to being unique - ours are the first and only awards that are 100 per cent dedicated to recognising standout people in our industry,” says Ruth. “We want to bring positivity and pride to the whole logistics sector after a challenging year, so we’re delighted that our online Awards will make it possible for anyone, anywhere to be part of the event.”
