The announcement was made on the FENEX YouTube channel, with a superb video produced by Team4 Marketing which was set to premiere at 8pm on Monday evening. There was a high number of people waiting to watch as the video streamed live. In almost perfect choreography, the winners were announced in tandem with the winners video. It resulted in an event that was a first for the fenestration industry and created huge hype and impact that evening and the following morning.

Speaking about the results and the event, co-founder Jason Grafton-Holt said: “this was a unique event for the industry, something that we believe had never been done before and it created such a positive and widespread impact that is still rippling through the sector. In what has been such a tough year for everyone, with almost everything cancelled or postponed, it was a genuine privilege to be able to bring our industry the highlight of the year. It was fantastic to see the industry get behind the NFAs and the goodwill and energy shown on social media during and after the event was something special. What a great early Christmas present for so many great people and companies!”

The NFAs have announced that there will be a winners event in 2021 to celebrate the success of the 2020 campaign. The format and timings of the event will be confirmed once more clarity around the pandemic is available. The awards, however, promise that this will be the party of the year for the entire industry and more information will be teased soon.

Details on when the 2021 campaign will begin are due to be announced soon.
