The computer retail channel is finally going to get its own dedicated trade awards event.

PC Retail Awards set for March ’08

Intent Media, publisher of the market leading PC Retail magazine and trade community website, has today unveiled first details about the PC Retail Awards 2008.

The event will take place on Thursday March 13th at the Café Royal, Regent Street, London and is expected to attract 400 key retailers, distributors, suppliers and media from the home and small business computing sector.

Categories will be announced in a few weeks time, alongside a major focus on the awards within the September edition of PC Retail.

There will be fifteen awards across three categories: Retail, Distribution & Vendors. Plus there will also be a prestigious Grand Prix Award.

PC Retail will choose five Finalists per award, announced in January, with an industry-wide panel then voting the winners.

“We have responded to demand for an awards event that fully respects the scale, competition and vibrancy of the retail market," commented PC Retail publisher and Intent Media managing director Stuart Dinsey.

"It will be transparent, valuable and a fantastic night of networking – with typically high Intent Media production values.”

Intent Media already runs major awards events in the video games and mobile markets, alongside events partner Barrington Harvey.

“This is about celebrating the industry and recognising exceptional performance from retailer or supplier alike,” added Dinsey “The awards will be affordable and heavily promoted – giving guests and sponsors great value."

More updates will come soon via PC Retail’s 13,000 strong print magazine, the PCR Daily News email bulletin and also our fast-growing website.
