Following the commencement of the nominations process for the BikeBiz Awards last week, we’ll be highlighting each and every category from our list of expertly-curated accolades, designed to reflect the varied and vibrant nature of the sector: from prizes that honour local independents and distribution giants through to awards for innovative brands and those providing essential services to the industry including training, advocacy and beyond.
Today, we’re showcasing Bike Distributor of the Year. Previous winners include Silverfish UK (2018), Moore Large (2017) and Cycling Sports Group UK (2015 and 2014).
Who should you nominate?
Any distributor that stocks a range of quality bikes, and that has a history of reliable service.
Businesses will be judged on the quality of the range offered, reputation for effective and efficient transactions, swift delivery and packaging.
Nominees must provide a 200-word statement covering:
What their customer service policy is
What standout products and brands they offer to retailers – especially those for which the nominee has exclusive distribution
How the team shares its industry knowledge and expertise with partner retailers to help them boost their businesses
Additional credit could include, but is not limited to distributors which have:
Been active in relevant cycling events over the last year
Supported up-and-coming cycling brands and designers in 2019
Entries and nominations for all categories can be made using the quick and easy online form, and the deadline is midday on Friday 12th July. More details on all categories can be viewed online.
The 11th annual ceremony is returning to the Cycle Show at the NEC Birmingham on 12th September, in conjunction with the exhibitor after-party. Trade registrations are now live for the Cycle Show and will be free until 11th September, with entry on the door £15 per person without exception with proof of trade occupation (business card). Tickets for the Awards will be available shortly.
