At the annual TTA Awards last Friday the tiling industry rolled out the red carpet in style to recognise and celebrate the top achievers in our sector.
It was a spectacular gala Awards night, which many in the industry are hailing as the best-ever, where Awards were presented in 17 categories. The evening was hosted by Kyran Bracken MBE for the first time. His hilarious stories from his illustrious career in international rugby (and Dancing on Ice) kept everyone entertained. He also did a great job as a compere for the evening, leading the presentations with pace, humour and professionalism.
The spotlight however was firmly on the Award winners and TTA would once again like to congratulate all the winners and finalists. You are all a credit to our industry and our Awards night undoubtedly recognised that fact.
TTA also wishes to express its thanks once again to our record number of Gold sponsors, who made the event possible – Banks & Lloyd, Jackoboard, Mapei, Norcros Adhesives, Shackerley (Holdings) Group Ltd., Tilemaster Adhesives, Topps Tiles, Trimline Group, UltraTileFix, Walls and Floors, Warmup.
It was also a highly successful night for the TTA’s nominated charity Children Today. The fundraising draw raised a very impressive total of £2,800. Elizabeth Oakes, regional fundraiser for the charity, says: “This is a fabulous amount of money and will enable Children Today to help another three families living with disability.”
In this special Awards edition of Tilezine we present photography from the night in all the categories in which Awards were presented.
The day also included the highly successful Tiling Show which is also featured in this issue.
