Entries will be closing very soon for the 2018 TTA Awards. If you have a project, an initiative or a new product that you want to shout about, now is your chance. There are four new categories to enter, bringing the total to 16 categories for 2018. Four of these will go to a public vote – Best Heritage Project, Best E-Commerce Website, Wall Tile of the Year and Floor Tile of the Year.
The full category list and entry forms are available to view on the special Awards website at www.ttaawards.com. Here you will also find full details of two new initiatives which are running alongside the Awards this year – The Tile Association Tiling Show and The CPD Seminar programme. Both of these events are to take place at The St Johns Hotel, Solihull, on 18 May 2018.
All exhibitors at the Show will get a 2-metre space, which costs just £75 + VAT for participants who are not Gold sponsors. The Show will be promoted to all those who are participating in the Awards and also to architects and specifiers attending the CPD seminars. The programme of CPD presentations will be made by member companies, providing a great opportunity for architects and specifiers to update their CPD credentials in the tiling sector, by attending one or more of the 45 minute RIBA-accredited seminars.
All Gold sponsors will be entitled to make a CPD presentation, so there will be six separate sessions held throughout the day, starting at 10am.
The presenting companies and the subjects of their presentations are as follows:
- BAL – External Tiling Solutions for Balconies and Terraces;
- Shackerley (Holdings) Group Ltd – SureClad Ventilated Façade Systems;
- Norcros Adhesives – Tiling to Anhydrite Screeds
- Instarmac – Underfloor Heating
- Nicholls & Clarke Group – Creating a Watertight Wetroom
- Trimline Group – topic to be confirmed.
The TTA is very grateful to the six Gold sponsors of the Awards this year for their support. They are: BAL, Instarmac, N&C Nicobond, Norcros Adhesives, Shackerley (Holdings) Group Ltd., Trimline Group.
