THE HEAVIES TO RELAUNCH IN 2024, BIGGER AND BETTER!
They say that bad luck comes in threes, first came the Coronavirus outbreak, second we were hit with operational restrictions, and now Peterborough Arena, the previous home of the Heavies Awards, has closed for events pending planning permission for a leisure development.
Sadly, this means that our planned Heavies Awards on 10th November has to be postponed yet again. The Heavies Awards, since its inception in 2015 has celebrated excellence across the heavy transport and abnormal load industry. From our beginnings, our judges have delivered industry recognition to operators across the UK, an honour we hope to continue to deliver for many years to come.
That being said, unfortunately, due to the uniqueness of The Heavies awards, good (truck friendly!) venues are hard to find, and we can’t simply rehome our industry celebrations at the drop of a hat.
With this in mind, we’ve taken the decision to press the pause button whilst we work behind the scenes to find our beloved Heavies Awards a new home. Throughout the heavy haulage and abnormal load industry, operators work exceptionally hard to deliver awe-inspiring transport projects, and we believe that our event and our industry deserve the best.
The Heavies will re-launch in 2024, bigger and better than ever and entries will open early next year. For those entries already submitted, we’ll happily roll them across to the 2024 awards, or accept new submissions. We will contact entrants individually in due course.
Alongside these awards, we were also planning to finally reveal the winners of the 2020 awards, which we never got to celebrate due to the Coronavirus outbreak. All the lucky winners have long since been chosen by our panel of judges – we just haven’t been able to celebrate! So, rather than roll this over for yet another year, we’ll be announcing the winners via our social media channels over the coming weeks, and we’ll send our lucky winners their silverware directly.
So, for the time being, watch this space and rest assured, The Heavies will return, bigger and better than ever!

ENTRIES FOR 2024 WILL OPEN SHORTLY
