Over 400 of the UK’s top retailers and their supply chain partners celebrated at the first Retail Week Supply Chain Awards at the Grosvenor House Hotel last week. Gaudio were approached to create a distinctive bespoke award for this new event to give prestige to this high profile ceremony. The unique design is made up of layers of highly polished aluminium and translucent blue Perpex, which gives a stunning effect under the bright podium lights.
The event was hosted by eccentric comedian Russell Kane who got up close and personal with all the winners! Companies taking home awards on the night included Travis Perkins/Yusen Logistics, John Lewis/Clipper Logistics, Argos/Shutl, Waitrose/Gist, Boots/ Unipart and the Co-operative.
Editor of Retail Week, Tim Danaher opened proceedings by congratulating the shortlist: “An efficient supply chain is vital to retail success and these awards have highlighted the important but often unsung role that supply chain professionals play.” Nick Jones, CEO Ligentia added: “We were pleased and delighted by the quality, and quantity, of entries across all of the Award categories. With UK Retail facing new challenges on a daily basis; it has been refreshing to be involved with a really positive event, which has presented opportunities to publicly recognise some great talent within our industry.”
