Football legend and radio star announced as post-dinner speaker at the 2018 IER Awards

In Industry Events, Industry News On

With the nation set to be gripped by football fever this summer, the organiser of the IER Awards and publisher of IER magazine, Datateam Business Media, is delighted to reveal that Arsenal legend and sports pundit Perry Groves will be making an appearance at this year’s ceremony. Taking place on Thursday April 12 at the Park Plaza London Victoria Hotel, the IER Awards will celebrate innovation and excellence in the electrical retailing sector.

Since retiring from professional football, Groves has put his experience and knowledge to use as a pundit for a number of media outlets and is now a regular feature on TalkSPORT, the world’s biggest sports radio station. Those in attendance will enjoy post-dinner entertainment from Groves as part of the reformatted event, which has been designed to offer a bumper B2B experience.

A new format

This year’s event will kick off at 10am with a unique showcase which will give retailers an opportunity to explore the latest products and solutions from leading manufacturers. Limited stand spaces are still available for those that wish to demonstrate their innovations – for more information, contact Linda Dorling on 01256 321337 or at lindaedorling@gmail.com.

Following this, an exclusive drinks reception will serve as the perfect environment to consolidate new and existing industry connections ahead of the hotly-anticipated Awards presentation.
