Deadline extended for Drinks Business Awards entries

We are extending the deadline for our Drinks Business Awards to 15 May.

With the London Wine Fair now postponed due to government reduced restrictions on public gatherings while the nation contends with a pandemic outbreak, we are also giving you more time to enter our annual awards, which were set to take place at the trade show in May.

Make sure you register before 31 March as we have also extended our earlybird rate to this date. Once registered, you will have until 15 May to submit your pitch online.

Our awards ceremony will now be held later in the year in central London, and we’ll reveal the full details as soon as we have them. Our past winners have included a wide range of professionals working in the drinks industry, from charismatic wine educators with their own schools, to retail giants, to boutique shops and PR firms striving to put their clients’ brands on the map. You can find out more about our 2019 winners here.
