Thursday 23rd of June saw the second BKU Awards evening take place at the stunning Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre.
Launched in 2015, the Awards were created to recognise the retailers, brands, people and services that make the KBB industry fantastic. Virtual Worlds proudly sponsored the awards for the second year running, managing director Nathan Maclean comments “ Sponsorship of the BKU Awards allows us to further contribute to the benefit of an industry that is at the source of our existence. The BKU Awards is the perfect event in which to connect with likeminded people and businesses in celebration of the talent and achievements within the KBB industry.”
Over 250 members of the industry turned out to see the stars of the bathroom and kitchen industry pick up their awards and celebrate the achievements of the past twelve months. A number of Virtual Worlds customers and manufacturer partners picked up awards such as New Bathroom Retailer of the Year for Beyond Bathroom and Multiple Retailer of the Year award for CP Hart along with Best Brand awards for Hansgrohe, Roca and HiB amongst others. Nathan Maclean was proud to present the Best Bathroom Taps Brand to Crosswater who work closely with Virtual Worlds.
The Virtual Worlds team who attended the evening were absolutely delighted to hear the winner of Best Software Brand announced as “Virtual Worlds” accompanied by a supportive cheer throughout the venue. Nathan Maclean, who collected the award, said “Having the hard work of the team recognised and voted for by the industry is a very proud moment and I would like to thank all those who voted for and have supported us over the last twelve months. We look forward to continued success in 2017!”
