Get your votes out for the industry

Nothing in life gives a man so much courage as the attainment or renewal of the conviction that other people regard him with favor;

Not long now!! There’s only three more days for you to vote for your favourites in the BMJ Industry Awards.

It’s been really amazing to see how quickly the nominations flooded in for these awards and even more heartening to see how many votes there have been. The BMJMagazine Twitter timeline has been chockful of people highlighting their involvement and it seems that every time I go out to visit a merchant they have posters all round the branch exhorting their colleagues, supplier and customers to vote for them. Which is nice.

Get voting now at the online voting portal

To remind you, the nominations are:
