The inaugural Ireland’s National Electrical Awards will recognise the high levels of excellence from all across the country.

Taking place in Dublin for the first time, the country’s top electrical contractors, consultants, wholesalers, manufacturers, people, products and projects will be recognised and rewarded at a gala ceremony on Friday, May 11, 2018, at the historic Mansion House in Dublin.

Hosted by Ireland’s Electrical Magazine, the awards are judged by an independent panel of respected industry experts who, through their experience, industry knowledge and professional approach, will have the difficult task of selecting the winners from across 16 different categories.

This event builds on the success of Northern Ireland’s Electrical Awards, which have been running in Belfast since 2013.
