The WatchPro Awards 2016 will honour the achievements of online retailers as well as those making a success of multiple channels. Innovation will also be applauded, as will the approach of department stores and brands with their own boutiques.

WatchPro publisher Daniel Malins said: “There’s simply nothing else like this in the UK watch industry. Not only will there now be a watch-dedicated awards evening, but the fact that all the winners will be the retailers themselves is extra special. We’re lucky in this country to have some of finest high street jewellers and watch e-tailers in the world, and it will be our privilege to honour just a handful of these great companies.”

Tickets for The WatchPro Awards 2016 cost £300 each inc VAT or £3,000 for a table of 10 and can be purchased through Eventbrite.

Eleven of the category shortlists will be decided based on reader nominations before a winner is judged while a final Retailer of the Year category will be awarded based solely on reader votes.
