Q: Do you have a new date set for the awards?
A: Yes. The new date is Thursday 10 September 2020
Q: How did you reach the decision to postpone the event?
A: This was a difficult decision to take. We have been in discussion with the EICC about the event and whilst at present there is no official guidance to cancel events we have reached a contractual milestone that means, if we were forced to cancel nearer the time due to a worsening situation, we would face a substantial cancellation cost.
Q: Will all entries remain valid?
A: Yes. The judging will take place as usual and then the results will be kept under wraps until September
Q: Will you re-open for entries?
A: No we are not accepting further entries as our judging process and timings remain in place.
Q: When will the finalists be announced?
A: We have completed distilling and brewing judging and are liaising with partners and following Government advice on when we can conduct all other tasted judging. We currently haven’t confirmed a date for this. Finalists will be announced once all judging has taken place.
Q: Will the venue be the same in September?
A: Yes. This year we are back at the EICC.
Q: Will tickets purchased for May be honoured for the September date?
A: Yes all tickets already purchased are fully transferable
Q: Are tickets still available to buy?
A: Yes, tickets still be bought by clicking here.
Q: What if I’ve already bought a ticket but I can not make the new date?
A: Please get in touch with our events team at firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: What will happen if September has to be cancelled too?
A: As there is such universal uncertainty around the impact of Coronavirus we will need to follow UK & Scottish Government guidance nearer the time. If in the unfortunate situation where the event has to be cancelled we will refund all ticket sales.
Q: Who should I contact if I have further questions?
A: Please contact our events team at email@example.com or 0131 335 0940
