Entry to the awards is free and very easy, and companies of all sizes, from all property disciplines, are invited to participate.

The winners will be announced and presented with their trophies at a glittering awardsâ€™ ceremony and gala dinner on Thursday 22nd November 2018, at G Live in Guildford, in the company of the very popular TV presenter, Nick Knowles, and the Mayor of Guildford. Tickets for the event can be secured by contacting the event organisers: The Promotional Edge (UK) Ltd T: 01483 233108 E: firstname.lastname@example.org.
