The Calies 2019 awards event, which took place tonight (19 November) at London’s Stationers’ Hall, was definitely worthy of an entry ‘in the diary’ as calendar and diary publishers of all shapes and sizes were duly feted in the UK’s only dedicated awards for calendars, diaries and Advents.

The Calies, (which supercede the National Calendar Awards), are organised by Max Publishing, with the full support from the calendar and diary sector.

“The Calies not only celebrate the excellence and innovation that exude on the product front, but also serve to champion the product area giving the sector greater visibility and credibility which is so valuable in these challenging times,” stated Warren Lomax, joint md of Max Publishing.

Hazel Walker, senior buyer of Waterstones shared her insights on the market in an engaging pre-awards speech before handing over to comedian Stuart Goldsmith who hosted the awards ceremony peppered with his quick-witted observations.
