XPERT Industry Awards 2020
The XPERT Industry awards have been created to recognise the best of our industry. The Pole & Aerial industry is ever growing and during this time we have seen it adapt and change to new ways. Many of us have been unable to train and have had to find what is the new normal in a trying time.
These awards are to recognise those that have gone above and beyond for their studio, for their students and for the Pole & Aerial industry. We have now completed round one which was nominations. Big congratulations to all who were nominated. Now it is down to public vote so please share and vote for your favourite person or company in each category. Only 1 vote per category.
XPERT Industry Most inspirational Student
VOTE for your best student. It is a tough time to be a student, thankfully with online lessons it allows studios to open classes to people from across the world. This award is for a student who has put in a huge amount of effort, maybe has struggled but has persisted and now is smashing every class? Let them know by voting for them.
