Preschool industry to celebrate a year of successes

Today will see the preschool industry coming together to celebrate the last 12 months of hard work, expertise and business aptitude at The Progressive Preschool Awards 2019.

The prestigious afternoon event, held at The Grosvenor House Hotel in London’s Mayfair, will see over 400 of preschool’s most influential retailers, suppliers, licensing contacts and industry pioneers coming together to celebrate this year’s finalists and winners; those who play a fundamental part in influencing the evolution and growth seen right across the preschool industry.

“We are coming together today to support and celebrate the industry’s achievements, particularly the outstanding efforts of those going home with a trophy,” said Progressive Preschool’s publishing director Rob Willis.  “This afternoon is set to be a truly memorable celebration for everyone in the preschool sector.”

To remind yourself of all the deserving finalists, please see the following news announcements: product categories, major retail categories, independent retail categories, wholesaler category and the marketing category. The winner of The Outstanding Achievement Award will be revealed on the day.
