TTA Awards move to new venue for 2021


Vent-Axia Fan Celebrates Sweet Sixteen

Vent-Axia continues to lead the way in reliability with one of its Silhouette bathroom fans celebrating its 16th birthday. Installed in 2005 in a family home in Hornchurch, Essex during the refurbishment of the property’s main bathroom, the fan is still going strong 16- years later. The Silhouette fan has worked effectively during this time without requiring any attention and continues to improve indoor air quality and combat condensation and mould. It is this longevity and reliability that is central to Vent-Axia commitment to sustainable high-quality design. “We wanted to make sure the fan we installed would be reliable and

would last and this led us to choose the Vent-Axia Silhouette fan”, explains homeowner, Gary McSweeney. “We liked it so much that when we needed a fan for our loft bathroom we went back to the Vent-Axia brand and chose the new Silent Fan which we are also really pleased with.”

TA is announcing a move to a new venue for this year’s TTA Awards.

To maximise safety of all attendees, this year’s Gala Awards Night will

be held at the Forest of Arden Marriott Hotel & Country Club, just four miles from the normal venue near the NEC. The evening’s celebrations will be held in a marquee on the same site

where the TTA Golf tournament will take place earlier in the day. Further information about the ever-popular TTA Golf Day will be made available in due course. “In the present situation, we felt that holding a slightly smaller event at

this venue would be the most responsible option for our guests at the TTA Awards,” says Paul Luff, TTA Chairman. “The event will be covid secure and we will work closely with the venue management to ensure that we follow the relevant guidance at the time. The evening will however offer all the usual attractions of the TTA Awards – combining a celebration of all that is best in our industry, in terms of achievement and success, with the opportunity for us as an industry to meet together and have a good time – something we are all definitely ready for!” TTA is very grateful to this year’s Gold sponsors. They are: Banks &

Lloyd, JACKOBOARD, Mapei, Norcros Adhesives, Palace Chemicals, PCS, Shackerley (Holdings) Group Ltd., Tilemaster, UltraTileFix and Verona. In view of restricted numbers at the event, it is now even more

important to get your seats booked early. Existing reservations will of course be honoured and new reservations can be made at £175 + VAT for an individual place, while a table of 10 costs £1,575 + VAT. A second table of 10 is available at a discounted rate of £1,400 + VAT. The TTA Awards will be back at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole in

2022 for a bigger TTA Awards event, and also a return of the Tiling Show. The date to put in your diary for that is 24 June 2022. Despite the changes, you can be sure that this year’s TTA Awards will

be an event to remember. After the year-and-a-half that we’ve had, everyone is going to be more than ready for a celebration, although attendees can be confident that the entire event will be held in a covid secure manner and in accordance with the relevant regulations.
