Impartial. Expertly Judged. Open to all those involved in a business operating in the welding industry.

The Welding World Awards are impartial, independent awards that can be won by any company operating in the welding industry. The aim of The Welding World Awards is to seek out examples of being the best at what we do.

Online nomination and voting is open until the end of November 2017. Nominees from the Top 20 will then be invited to attend a judging day during February 2018.

The sophisticated Welding World Awards ceremony will take place on Wednesday 11th April 2018 at the Hilton Metropole Hotel, Birmingham.

All nominees will have the opportunity to publicise on The Welding World Awards website with the award winners having full on-going publicity following the award ceremony.

The host for The Welding World Awards will be Eamonn Holmes.
