The leading figures in electrical retailing across the country gathered on Thursday 11 April 2019 at the Victoria Park Plaza Hotel in London for the 27th iteration of the IER awards. Appliance World, North West fought off tough competition to proudly take home the trophy for the prestigious 'Best IER Retailer Award'. Winning this award is an unrivalled seal of approval in a highly competitive field.
Organised by Datateam Business Media, publisher of the Innovative Electrical Retailing Magazine, the event celebrated the incredible achievements of the sector from the past twelve months, honouring exceptional products, business pioneers, high street heroes and customer champions. The unique format of the afternoon gave guests the change to witness live demonstrations of innovative products from leading manufacturers in the field, followed by an opportunity to network with peers at an exclusive drinks reception ahead of the awards presentation itself.
The highly anticipated awards ceremony, hosted by critically acclaimed comedian Sean Collins and household favourite Alan Dedicoat, saw 23 accolades presented to the very best manufacturers/suppliers, retailers and individuals that the industry has to offer.

Once the awards had been presented, the afternoon gave attendees the chance to give a little back with a charity raffle. Raising money for the retailTRUST, raffle tickets were sold in support of the hard work that the organisation does to help improve the lives of those involved in retail and related fields in the UK. A plethora of gifts were won, as the lucky ticket holders were invited to the stage to collect their prizes. Thanks to the generosity of those in attendance, £1050.00 was raised for the charity.
Following the success of the event, special projects and events manager Linda Dorling said:" The award winners for this year's ceremony have really stepped up their game to clinch an award.
