The search has begun to find the 100 most influential watch industry figures in the UK and Ireland with today’s launch of WatchPro’s HOT 100 2016.
This is the fourth year that WatchPro has launched the HOT 100 process that is decided by nominations from peers within the industry.
The WatchPro HOT 100 was launched in 2013 to celebrate the achievements of the brightest stars within the industry from designers and manufacturers to the people who market, distribute and sell the watches they make.
Figures from within the UK watch industry can be nominated by colleagues or nominate themselves and entry to the final list is judged on their performance within the last 12 months.
WatchPro will host a glittering party in July to celebrate the announcement of the final HOT 100 and the unveiling of WatchPro’s annual HOT 100 publication.
This year’s event will again have Bransom as its official Technology Partner.
The magazine features interviews and stunning portrait photography of the HOT 100 themselves, shot by Kalory.co.uk.
The publication is divided into chapters covering Power Players, Premier Buyers, Retail Titans, Brand Champions and Trailblazers. The final list will remain a closely guarded secret until the big reveal.
How to enter
Entry is simple. Make your nominations by email to firstname.lastname@example.org for inclusion on the shortlist. Your emails must include the person’s:
company and position
a brief summary of the reason they are being nominated, which can include supporting information that will be treated in the strictest confidence.
There is no voting procedure and the final HOT 100 will be decided upon by WatchPro and HOT 100 editor, James Buttery, based upon the strength of the submissions.
Nominations will remain open until Friday 15 April.
