The 2020 Gas Industry Awards have been postponed to 2021, due to the coronavirus crisis. The awards, organised by the Energy and Utilities Alliance (EUA) and IGEM, recognise the contribution of the gas industry’s most innovative, dedicated and outstanding members. The awards, originally due to take place on 6 May, will now be held on 18 May 2021.
EUA chief executive Mike Foster says: “The decision to move the event to next year means that we can give the award nominees the full coverage they deserve. All nominations and bookings received for 2020 will be carried over to 2021 event.
“While this delay comes with a heavy heart, EUA is confident that the awards will continue to be the largest and most prestigious event in the gas industry calendar.”
IGEM chief executive Neil Atkinson adds: “We know you’ll be as disappointed as we are that the Gas Industry Awards are not going ahead this year. However, we are looking forward to being reunited in 2021, when we can finally give our nominated people, projects and companies the recognition they deserve.
“This is a tough time for everyone, especially those working in critical infrastructure. But during this unprecedented period of hardship, while you are all hard at work maintaining one the safest and greenest gas networks in the world, we’ll be readying an extra special awards to celebrate your commitment and dedication.”
