The Arbordeck Awards have proved to be a resounding success, with dozens of entries from decking installers the length and breadth of the country – and Arbor Forest Products and Trex has now revealed the 2019 category shortlists.
The judges have narrowed down the shortlist to 15 installers across the five categories – Best Large Trex Deck, Best Small Trex Deck, Best Trex Design Solution, Best Commercial Trex Deck, and, new for 2019, Best Arbordeck Softwood Timber Deck. Any of the shortlisted companies could go on to win the prestigious ‘Deck of the Year’ accolade and the top prize of a trip to Washington DC, complete with a tour of the Trex University.
The category winners and ‘Deck of the Year’ will be revealed in a lunchtime ceremony hosted in The Brasserie at FutureScape on 19 November 2019, where installers will have the chance to network with the awards judges and learn more about Trex.
Commenting on the awards, Trex product marketing manager and Arbordeck Awards judge Sarah Francis said: “I’m delighted to be unveiling the winners of this year’s Arbordeck Awards at FutureScape – we received a huge number of entries this year with outstanding quality across the board, so all of our finalists should be very proud of their achievements so far.”
Trex is also a FutureScape sponsor, so for anyone considering entering the 2020 Arbordeck Awards, it’s the ideal time to gain some inspiration. The World’s Number 1 composite decking brand is showcasing the best of Trex on the Sponsor 3 stand, complete with complimentary mocktails served by a qualified mixologist at the Trex Bar.
The Trex stand is constructed entirely from Trex Transcend and Trex Enhance, showing off the ‘Good, Better, Best’ options the full range offers, and features curved decking boards, a bar area, and decking board swatches showcasing the full range.
“FutureScape is one of the most important events in the landscaping calendar, and we’re looking forward to giving decking installers a glimpse at what’s new for Trex. Our stand is bigger and better than ever before, so I would encourage everyone to visit as early as possible to sample a free mocktail and view the full Trex collection.
