Tears and Cheers at the 2022 BMJ Industry Awards – Builders Merchants Journal

The winners and finalists of the BMJ Industry Awards 2022 were announced at the awards luncheon in London on Friday September 9e.

Taking place less than 24 hours after the announcement of the death of HM Queen Elizabeth II, the event was tinged with sadness as well as celebration.

A minute’s silence was observed to remember Her Majesty, and BMJ Group Editor Fiona Russell-Horne offered a toast to her memory and one to the new King. She also thanked Her Majesty for her years of service, her sense of duty and her commitment to her people.
