What. A. Night!
The TTA Awards gala dinner and presentations on Saturday 14th May celebrated the very best in the wall and floor tiling industry.
Held at St John’s Hotel and Conference Centre in Solihull with a Brazilian theme to tie in with this summer’s Rio Olympic Games, the event saw the winners from a wide range of categories claiming their trophies and certificates.
Hosted by ITV’s Emma Jesson, the event also raised almost £3,000 for the TTA’s chosen charity, Children Today.
Huge congratulations to all of the winners – and equal congratulations to all the businesses and individuals who were finalists. And thank you to all businesses who submitted entries last year. The quality and range of awards submissions proves what a healthy state the industry is in.
Gold sponsors for the event were Bellota, N&C Nicobond, Norcros Adhesives and Shackerley.
