CTSI has announced that the Hero Awards 2020 have been postponed due to the Covid-19 lockdown.
Chief Executive, Leon Livermore, commented: “It is with a heavy heart that I must announce that we are postponing this year’s CTSI Hero Awards. The awards, which celebrate the very best of trading standards and the consumer protection landscape, were due to take place at One Great George Street, London on the evening of Tuesday July 7, 2020.
“While the CTSI Hero Awards is a highlight of the consumer protection calendar, we cannot justify carrying on with our original plan whilst the country continues to face the threat of the Covid-19 pandemic. We are hoping to reschedule the event later in the year and will announce a new date as we monitor the situation. Any nominations already received will be carried forward to the rescheduled event.
“I am sure that there will be many exceptional award candidates and we can’t wait to highlight all the amazing work that is being done to protect consumers on the frontline even now while Covid-19 related scams are surging.
“Thank you for everything that you do, and please stay safe and healthy.”
