Best Managed Awards Event
Chamberlain Dunn – Healthcare People Management Awards
As a team, Chamberlain Dunn bring the HPMA a quality high profile awards programme, with minimal financial risk to the association, and with member benefits at its very heart.
Entry into the competition is free of charge and open to any healthcare HR professional working in the UK, so good practice from any corner of the UK can be spotlighted. All finalists who are HPMA members are given free tickets to the celebration ceremony with additional tickets offered for sale to their teams at minimal cost. As a result we see almost every finalist represented, very often joined by their teams which makes for a great atmosphere ‘on the night’ – and a highly appreciated recognition of the wider team contribution to projects.
Our sponsor community is the lifeblood of the competition; highly valued and involved at every level.
The HPMA Excellence Awards programme brings new professionals and organisations into the HPMA community, encouraging both inter-professional collaboration and cross-sector working. The awards introduce new audiences to the association every year – both as potential members and future commercial supporters or partners and breeds ambassadors for the future awards programme.
William Reed Business Media & Corporate Events – The Publican Awards
Established as the biggest event in the pub industry’s calendar and celebrating its 25th anniversary, the 2016 Publican Awards recognised and rewarded the very best in the pub industry. A change in venue and injection of experiential ideas and spectacular production made it the best yet. 1,400 delegates attended the awards show prepared for an intriguing and exciting event and with a red carpet entrance, outside bar, fire dancers, world record attempts and the very funny Michael McIntyre, as host, they were not disappointed.
The team at Corporate Events worked with the team at The Morning Advertiser on every aspect of the technical production, creating the highlight of the pub industry’s calendar for 2016. The awards saw a record number of entries which are only set to be beaten ahead of the 2017 event in March.
Great Place to Work Institute – UK’s Best Workplaces Awards
The Best Workplace awards are one of the UK’s most highly regarded and sought-after workplace awards and are regarded as the gold standard of employer awards. The Awards presentation celebrates organisations who deliver excellence, honouring more than 100 organisations who have been awarded the coveted Best Workplace status.
Redactive Media Group has managed the Best Workplace awards since 2013 and our development of the awards has led to improvements which have exceeded all expectations. The event has grown by more than 500 people from when we took over the event management: numerous companies have gone from booking one table to booking four due to their enjoyment of the evening!
Incisive Media – CICM British Credit Awards
The ICM Awards were launched in 2013 by Incisive Media, since then we have overseen the awards grow from 300 to 550 attendees, seen the entries rise from 70 to 118, and the awards categories grow from 16 to 25. When we started, our core objective was to create an awards ceremony that was different from the competitors – entertaining and fun, but also more serious in tone to reflect the professionalism of credit.
The core event team consists of a project manager, who looks after the day-to-day running of the event, deals with operations, venue and sponsorship elements; a marketing manager who works on promoting awards entries and manages the marketing campaigns; a sales manager who books all the sponsors and looks after their accounts; and a delegate sales executive who sells the tables.
The event revenues has enjoyed a steady increase year on year growing by 50% since launch. On average, there are 15 sponsors who each will present an award on the night and have additional branding around the venue.
The CICM Awards have now become the benchmark for excellence in the industry and are now sold as the “Professional Standard”.
Wolfe – MBNA Northwest Football Awards
2016 saw the Northwest Football Awards (NWFA), produced, managed and delivered by WolfeSport, a division of Wolfe. Since acquiring the rights to deliver the Northwest Football Awards in 2012, Wolfe has grown the awards year-on-year, and attracted a naming right’s partner, as well as other sponsors and partners.
When Wolfe took over, the Awards’ event was tired, not credible and not accepted by the footballing community. The NWFA is now recognised as best in class, with involvement from every single professional football club in the Northwest of England, from Premier League to the National League, and all the footballing bodies across the country. Wolfe has also created lasting media partnerships developed with the BBC, FC Business and She Kicks magazine.
Hosted by the BBC’s Dan Walker, the Northwest Football Awards is a celebration of everything football from across the Northwest of England, from the National League to the Premier League; from the players at the forefront to the unsung heroes of the backroom; from the medical staff who keep the players fit on the pitch to the journalists who write about it off the pitch; from the businesses who are involved in it, to the fans (like us!) who are fanatical about it.
The NWFA pays tribute to those on and off the pitch who make the beautiful game what it is and without whom, football in the Northwest simply would not have its rightful place on the national and international stage.
