Deadline extended for ACR News Awards 2018

The ACR News Awards 2018 entry deadline has been extended to Wednesday 20 September 2017.

The upcoming ACR News Awards will be taking place on 24 January 2018.

Sponsored by Bitzer, Hawco, Hitachi, Advanced Engineering, First Choice, Smith Brothers Stores and Toshiba, the ACR News Awards recognises the talent, dedication and hard work at the heart of the air conditioning and refrigeration industry.  

Bringing four new categories into the mix, the 2018 Awards is set to be bigger and better than ever before. Commercial Contractor and Industrial Contractor of the Year will be determined by an industry vote. Open to UK air conditioning and/or refrigeration contractors, entrants can demonstrate their extensive hard work and the scope of their service capability, offering valuable business exposure.

Also new for 2018 are two new judged categories: Thermal Controller and Instrumentation of the Year. These categories are open to air conditioning or refrigeration controllers or instrumentation launched onto the UK market after November 1 2016. Decided by a panel of industry experts, entrants will highlight their key technological features and how their product differs from competitors, amongst other criteria. The winners of all categories will be announced on the night of the awards.

Entering the ACR News Awards is a brilliant opportunity for companies to increase brand awareness and for individuals to raise their profile and fly their company flag at a prestigious industry event. With the extended entry deadline, there’s still plenty of time to enter.

To enter and view all the categories, visit and fill in the free online form, supplying supporting documents where required.

Plan and book ahead
