Caspian Media – The Amazon Growing Business Awards
Created by Real Business 18 years ago, supported by the CBI and sponsored by Amazon, The Amazon Growing Business Awards are the UK’s most established and respected recognition of SME and entrepreneurial success. The 2016 event, held at The Brewery in London on 30th November 2016 marked a particularly successful year; with the new partnership with Amazon, the addition of new categories which helped generate exceptional press coverage, and a significant increase in the quantity and quality of submissions. The aim for 2016 was, of course, to create an event that was financially successful, but the team also strived to create an Awards that finalists, winners and sponsors were all proud to be a part of. It was important that this was not ‘just another black tie awards ceremony’. We recognised that many of the companies entering would want to use the event to further their business needs; either through PR or networking. A huge emphasis was placed on PR outreach and set out to ensure that the night itself was informal, relaxed and fun, and that it maximised the opportunities for these exciting growing businesses to interact and learn from one another. As well as recognising the success of individual businesses, the categories are designed to showcase the talents of the country as a whole and the vital role growing businesses play in our economic health. As such, the Growing Business Awards have a campaigning role – highlighting the economic importance of the UK’s SMEs.
Civil Society Media – The Charity Awards
Now in its 18th year, the Charity Awards recognise and reward excellence in charity leadership and management.
The cause-specific category structure means that any charity, big or small, can have a chance of winning.
No other charity sector awards programme has such a rigorous application and judging process. The expert, independent judging panel assesses each entry against ten Hallmarks of Excellence – attributes such as Innovation, Effectiveness, Sustainability – in an intensive process that involves two days of individual marking followed by two days of debate and decision. Some applicants even have their entries interrogated at face-to-face interviews.
To help applicants understand what each of our Hallmarks mean, we have created guides containing case studies, expert advice and analysis on each one.
Winning and shortlisted charities are profiled in all Civil Society Media’s titles: Charity Finance, Fundraising and Governance & Leadership, as well as online, giving the charities the biggest exposure possible in the sector.
We are the only awards in the sector to offer free places at dinner to all shortlisted charities, and we also don’t charge applicants to enter, unlike some other awards programmes.
Crain Communications – Plastics Industry Awards
The Plastics Industry Awards are firmly established as the forum for recognising and rewarding excellence in the plastics industry. Held annually, the event rewards innovation and exceptional performance from the best companies and the best people in plastics design and manufacturing in the UK and Ireland.
With 16 Awards covering companies and individuals and all aspects of plastic product design, manufacture and recycling, the Plastic Industry Awards cover all sectors of the industry and give companies, large and small, the opportunity to enter and succeed in the competition.
Wanting to refresh a successful formula to mark the 100th anniversary of organisers Crain Communications, the 2016 awards were enlivened by adding a 1920s Great Gatsby theme to the whole event, with period dress and an evening of sparkling and spectacular entertainment including aerial artistes, laser lights, fire acts and more.
Unparalleled in the plastics industry, the awards were highly acclaimed by guests, winners, industry event supporters and commercial sponsors alike. Combining business networking, entertainment and pure fun, the event has become the highlight of the plastics industry calendar. More than 650 people attended in 2016, an increase of 5% increase on the previous year.
Energy Live News – The Energy Live Consultancy Awards
The Energy Live Consultancy Awards (TELCA) were started in 2013. The vision was to create a prestigious awards programme and night for the Energy Sector to build new standards for an unregulated market.
The business energy market is worth billions and 50-70% of the sales that suppliers achieve comes from companies called energy brokers. Most brokers are professional and work hard for their customers, however there are some that do not work so professionally and give the sector a bad reputation.
The programme was created by independent publisher Energy Live News which is an award winning daily news site with a track record of innovative journalism and a highly-respected name in the sector.
TELCA was designed to be independent and rigorous, so the winners and even the shortlisted companies would feel proud and could use the awards as a marketing/sales tool.
We know that TELCA have changed the way the energy world works, by creating a programme that benchmarks energy brokers and drives their behaviours to be more trusted, more transparent and more focussed on their customers’ needs.
Informa – Scrip Awards
The Scrip Awards were launched in 2005 to fill a gap in the market for a global business awards event for the pharmaceutical and biotech industries. While there were other smaller awards covering national markets or specific sectors of the industry such as marketing, there was nothing encompassing the whole sector internationally. Scrip, the world’s leading publication covering news, analysis and data for the pharma and biotech with a strong and long-standing international reputation, was uniquely positioned to take up the challenge. By launching the Scrip Awards, it was able to take advantage of the wider events management expertise found within its new parent company, Informa plc, which bought the Scrip brand in 2004.
The 2016 Scrip Awards were the largest to date, with a 30% increase in revenue year-on-year, over exceeding on our number of entries as well as bringing together influencers across the industry.
We believe that while the Scrip Awards may not be the biggest, they are the best in that they:
– fill the gap in the market for high-level recognition for an industry that is often overlooked
– are a commercial success, meeting tough profit targets
– meet sponsors’ needs to align themselves with this industry in a meaningful way
– provide an international networking event for delegates and sponsors
– are an enjoyable event, much anticipated in the industry
