The GGF was delighted to hear the news that it has been shortlisted as a finalist in three categories for the Trade Association Forum (TAF) Awards 2017. The three categories that GGF has been nominated for are:

  • BEIS Sector Representation of the Year (for the GGF Consumer Code of Practice and gaining approval by Chartered Trading Standards Institute)
  • Marketing Campaign of the Year (for MyGlazing.com)
  • Website of the Year (for MyGlazing.com)

Now in its fifteenth year, the prestigious TAF Best Practice Awards recognise, reward and promote best practice amongst Trade Associations in the UK and are a chance for trade bodies to showcase their hard work and achievements during the last twelve to eighteen months.

At the end of 2016, the GGF won a Construction Marketing Award for MyGlazing.com and also the G16 Award for “Unrivalled Excellence and Outstanding Services to the Industry”. The GGF is now hoping to make it a remarkable hat-trick of awards.

On hearing the announcement, James Lee, GGF Director of Marketing and Communications commented, “Just to be nominated in the TAF awards is always very difficult because they cover every trade body in the UK, not just glass and glazing or construction. To reach the finalist stage in three categories is in itself a considerable achievement. Full praise should go to the GGF staff and Members for their work on the projects we entered, MyGlazing.com and the GGF Consumer Code of Practice.”

The winners of the TAF Awards will be revealed on 12th July at a Gala Dinner at the historic Drapers Hall in London.
