This may be one of the most difficult leader columns that I’ve sat down to write since becoming editor of PCR. The process of putting
this magazine together throughout the past month has been somewhat disrupted.
Our business has been functioning pretty much as usual, and thankfully, all those involved in getting this magazine into your hands have been able to continue working as hard as they do any other month. But with daily updates from the government about the state of the economy, the country, and the people living and working within it, I am conscious that this month’s issue needs to reflect the current state of the retail and tech channels, and provide as much insight, information and advice that we can.
As such, you’ll find information in our Retail Analysis section (p6) about how the government is helping retail and tech businesses amid the current crisis. We also look at the importance of device security (p24), especially how this has evolved with the increased number of people working from home.
However, this issue is not the COVID-19 special, it’s our PCR Awards 2020 review issue. And as such, we bring you all the winners from our successful 2020 awards show (p14), which took place on 4th March. And you can all reminisce back to when more than two of you could gather in one place by checking out our after party snaps in the Logging Off section (p49).
I would once again like to say a huge thank you to all of our Awards Partners and all of those that attended this year’s PCR Awards.
Stay safe, everyone.
