Composites UK has launched the 2015 Industry Awards nomination process allowing UK companies to celebrate their achievements over the last year and showcase their success worldwide.
Nominations are welcome in the following categories.
Deadline for nominations is 5pm on 29th May 2015 and is open to both member and non-member companies. Composites UK says a shortlist of entries will be chosen by the judging panel with the overall winner for each category being announced at the black-tie Awards Dinner on 4th November 2015, held at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole on the NEC complex, Birmingham, UK.
Claire Whysall, Communications Manager for Composites UK said, “After receiving a record number of entries last year we’re hoping that this trend continues. At past award events we announced the winner beforehand, however this year our judges will be shortlisting the top entries with the winner being announced at the dinner itself.
“Over 100 seats for the 2015 dinner have already been sold as many companies see the value in combining this event with the Advanced Engineering Show taking place on the 4-5 November across at the Birmingham NEC. It’s a way to thank employees for their hard work, clients for their custom, and network with other attendees.”
Sponsorship opportunities are available with Dark Matter Composites, MPM and the National Composites Centre already supporting the event.
Nomination forms, registration information and sponsorship details are available via the Association website: www.compositesuk.co.uk
