Finalists have been announced for the much-anticipated Hire Association Europe Event Hire Association (HAE EHA) Hire Awards of Excellence 2022. Due to be held on Saturday 7th May at Grosvenor House, London, the awards offer a welcome opportunity for hire businesses to celebrate in style after the last two years’ events had to be held virtually due to COVID restrictions.
Hosted by stand-up comedian and writer Jo Caufield of Mock the Week and Have I Got News for You, the awards are set to be an entertaining and memorable opportunity to celebrate the outstanding achievements of hire and supply companies across the UK’s plant, tool, equipment and event hire industries. Recognition will also be given to individuals who have consistently stood out from the crowd by achieving some of the highest standards in the industry.
Awards are up for grabs in 16 different categories including the new for 2022 Diversity and Inclusion Initiative Award. The judges have had their work cut out choosing the winners against stringent criteria and undoubtedly, achieving a win at the Hire Awards of Excellence is one of the most sought-after accolades within the plant, tool, equipment and event hire sectors.
