CRN Channel Awards 2020: LiveCast
Thursday 12 November, 5pm

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the very first Channel Awards LiveCast. It was fantastic to bring the channel together, albeit virtually, for a wonderful celebration - we hope you enjoyed it. Fingers crossed we'll be back at Battersea in 2021!

Congratulations to all the 2020 winners!

It is more important than ever to celebrate and recognise success in the channel after an unprecedented year. We have created some extra categories for this year only that are dedicated to initiatives carried out during the Covid-19 lockdown, and also some personal awards for individual or team heroes who went above and beyond the call of duty during these difficult times. 

We can't get together in person at Battersea Evolution this year, but this does not mean that we can't celebrate the Channel Awards in true channel style! CRN invites you to get involved in the 2020 Channel Awards LiveCast, presented LIVE from a top London studio, hosted by a celebrity presenter, directly to your offices or homes.

Apart from announcing the winners, the show will feature a series of short, fun, specially-recorded documentaries, the fizziest contributions on social media, and possibly even live coverage from the best industry parties. Stay tuned as in the run up we announce competitions and reveal more ways you and your teams can get involved in the biggest night in the UK channel! We can't wait to celebrate with you all! Click here to find out more.

The channel is constantly innovating and adapting, more rapidly than ever this year, be proud of what you have achieved this year - this is your chance to be recognised at the most prestigious awards in the channel, and an opportunity to start looking to the future!

To go until 2020 Channel Awards LiveCast!
