FLTA Awards for Excellence to take place online on Saturday 10th April.

For the first time ever, the Fork Lift Truck Association will be hosting its prestigious Awards for Excellence online. After an anxious wait – that has seen two postponements – finalists will see the famous blue envelopes opened and the winners announced during an hour-long virtual event.

Almost a year since the 26th FLTA Awards was due to take place, guests will take their seats – in their own living rooms – to see a very different event: but one which will deliver the same blend of entertainment and suspense that singles out the Awards from its imitators.

FLTA director Tim Waples says: “We are very much looking forward to a great night celebrating the achievements of companies and individuals alike. The Awards will start at 7pm, so it will be a fun way for ticket holders to get their Saturday night started.

“There will lots of familiar faces from the industry making an appearance throughout the night. Our fantastic sponsors have graciously stepped up to play integral roles throughout the ceremony, and will, as usual, be announcing the winners of the 10 categories. 

“We may not have the on-stage banter that has become a feature of the Awards, but I can promise it will an engaging event containing some entirely new elements that will ensure the audience at home get involved and stay watching to the very end. Innovations for the night include a special Awards cocktail, after-party playlist and Grand Prize Draw for ticket holders, with some really impressive prizes up for grabs.”

The 26th FLTA Awards for Excellence will be streamed exclusively to ticket holders on Saturday 10th April 2021 and will be made available online thereafter.
