The Welding World Awards are the only regular UK gala event celebrating the achievements of members of the welding industry.

On Wednesday 11th April 2018 businesses from all over the welding industry came together to celebrate and recognise the deserving winners and finalists of the Welding World Awards 2018. The 2nd awards event, hosted by Eamonn Holmes OBE, was a huge success and enjoyed by all those that attended. A selection of awards winners’ photographs are shown in the gallery below.

Preparations were underway for the 2020 Welding World Awards, but were paused due to COVID-19. It is now envisaged that the next industry awards event will take place in 2022. Details will be announced here.

Our 2018 Awards Event Charity Partner was Kidney Cancer UK, for whom we raised £10,276 on the night from donations and auctions.
