Please don’t miss out – the April 1 deadline for your entries and nominations for the 2005 SCEPTRE Awards is approaching fast

Make sure you don’t miss out on the 2005 SCEPTRE Awards – the closing date for nominations and entries is looming.

The awards that recognise the best practice and the best people in the shopping centre industry have a glamorous new home this year – London’s Dorchester Hotel.

Tuesday, June 7 is the day when the winners in 11 categories will be revealed during a glittering, black-tie awards dinner.

But first, Shopping Centre needs your nominations. The entry deadline of Friday, April 1 is not far away.

Entry/nomination forms have been distributed through various channels, and you can also nominate or enter online, at www.sceptre-awards.co.uk. The website also offers the option of downloading entry/nomination forms.

These are the SCEPTRE Awards categories for which nominations are required by April 1:

Town-Centre Shopping Centre Manager of the Year, Out-of-Town/Edge-of-Town Shopping Centre Manager of the Year, Factory Outlet Centre Manager of the Year, Shopping Centre Marketing Manager of the Year, Customer Services Team of the Year, Town Centre Manager of the Year, Young Achiever of the Year and Mall Promotion of the Year.

Soon, you will also be able to vote – via fax-back form or online – for your Retailer of the Year and Short-Term Merchant of the Year.

And the SCEPTRE Lifetime Achievement Award committee is nearing the end of its deliberations on the recipient of the award that recognises an outstanding contribution to the industry.

“We’ve had a good initial response to our call for entries,” says Shopping Centre editor Pat Morgan, “and many people have told us they will be entering or nominating this year.

“But I would urge anyone considering an entry or nomination not to delay. We wouldn’t want to turn anyone away because their entry arrived too late.

“It’s going to be a cracking year for the SCEPTRE Awards, with a new category – Customer Services Team of the Year – and a fantastic new venue.”
