UK Ecommerce Awards 2019

The dust has settled and hangovers have abated from the inaugural UK eCommerce Awards. We take a look back at the evening and what made it so special.

Space 48 founder and Managing Director Jon Woodall had the idea for an awards event that would recognise excellence and success in eCommerce across the UK. The awards would be open to businesses of all sizes, celebrating talent and dedication of retail and online businesses that often fly below the radar. Events company Don’t Panic was the perfect partner to help make the awards evening go without a hitch. From this collaboration, the UK eCommerce Awards was born.

The awards, in association with UKFast, took place on Wednesday 6 March 2019 at the Montcalm Marble Arch in London and were a huge celebration of talent across eRetailing and online business. Featuring categories celebrating exceptional ecommerce websites, platforms, suppliers, and marketing from both in-house teams and agencies, the number of entries far exceeded our expectations and led to an impressive shortlist.

On the night, there was a fantastic atmosphere, with plenty of enthusiasm and support for all the businesses and individuals shortlisted. The reactions from some of the winners was priceless and to top it off, the whole room celebrated Jon Woodall’s birthday, who managed to maintain his composure as over 200 revellers enthusiastically sang Happy Birthday to him.
