BMEA awards to be decided in open vote

This year the British Marine Electronics Association’s awards will be judged by the public. The Waterside Dealer and Product of the Year Award winners will be announced at the annual BMEA Conference in Southampton on October 8, 2008.

The public are encouraged to participate in the online poll by registering their votes on the BMEA website. When visiting the site, customers will be asked to choose from a list of BMEA waterside dealers from across the UK as well as products submitted by manufacturers or national distributors.

“It really is up to the customer to ask themselves what electronic/electrical product has been really good value for money or innovative from the submitted list. They also need to decide which company/sole trader has given then exceptional service during the 2008 season,” says Ian Lockyer of BMEA.

The BMEA, a member of the British Marine Federation (BMF), represents and promotes the interests of British manufacturers and suppliers of marine equipment such as radars, GPS receivers, radios, navigation aids and more. It was established in 1966.
