B&C Awards 2021: Now not on a major religious holiday

19 March 2021

Bridging & Commercial has decided against hosting the long-awaited B&C Awards 2021 on the same day as a religious holiday observed by many in the industry.

Lockdownbrain manifests in various ways and this is how it got to us.

So (drumroll, please), the final confirmed date of the event, in association with United Trust Bank, is Wednesday 6th October this year.

Table holders, guests and sponsors will undoubtedly be delighted that we can finally mark our calendars to come together and celebrate like never before. We have missed you terribly and can’t wait for this occasion.

“Whatever the date, the B&C Awards are always one of the highlights of the year,” commented Gavin Diamond, commercial director of bridging at United Trust Bank.

“We’re looking forward to a celebration of more normal times and enjoying a catch up with industry friends.”

The theme of this year’s event at the Hurlingham Club in Fulham will be African Safari.

Voting for the awards opened on 8th February and, in light of the change of date for the ceremony, the deadline has been extended to 31st May.

Professionals in the specialist finance industry are encouraged to cast their votes for their preferred winners in the 24 award categories — details about which are available on the online voting form

Further changes to the timelines can be found in the detailed guidance published here.

“We want to thank our incredible supporters, especially our main sponsor United Trust Bank, for bearing with us as we patiently awaited the moment that we could confidently and safely reschedule the B&C Awards,” said Medianett managing director, Caron Schreuder.

“This year’s celebration is going to be one for the books.”

The broker and lender judging panels will be announced later this month, with the shortlist published in the first week of June.

The winners will be determined by the judges in late June and revealed at the ceremony in October.
