After much consideration and monitoring of the Covid-19 situation across the globe, we have come to the decision to host the Heavy Lift Awards 2020 in a new virtual capacity rather than a live event this year.
Of course, we are upset to not be able to celebrate the achievements of all of our finalists on the red carpet in London, but we are confident that our virtual offering retains the integrity and prestige of the awards, while also putting the health and safety of our stakeholders first.
We are committed to rewarding, recognising and celebrating excellence in the project cargo supply chain, from the companies that have executed complex transport operations and implemented safe and environmentally friendly working practices, to the people that have dedicated a lifetime of leadership and innovation to the sector.
The Heavy Lift Awards 2020 will now begin on October 5 and run until October 21 with 13 days dedicated to our award categories. We will be revealing more about each of our finalists throughout the summer.
Alongside the entered categories, which are being judged by our independent panel, we will also be launching a series of reader's vote awards in the coming weeks.
We would like to thank our sponsors - AAL, Blue Water Shipping, deugro group, FESCO Projects, Goldhofer, RTL, Sarens, Trans Global Projects Group and Wallenius Wilhelmsen Ocean - for their continued support of the Heavy Lift Awards 2020. Without it, we would not be able to continue to reward excellence in this fascinating industry.
