The Awards Event 2017

The Event of the Year

The winners of the British Sign Awards are unveiled at a gala presentation ceremony that, unlike so many other industry awards, will take place during the day on Thursday, November 9th, 2017.

The aim of the BSGA Council in running a day time event was to make it as accessible and as cost effective for as many people from the industry as possible.

This year the awards move to a new location – the Athena Events Centre which is located in the heart of Leicester’s cultural quarter.   The venue, an art deco style building specially converted to host events, is fabulously equipped to allow the staging of a memorable awards presentation.

Leicester is situated in the centre of the country, making travel from North, South, East and West relatively easy and, although close to the city centre, the Athena has private parking for more than 100 vehicles were more spaces nearby if required.

The event will open at mid-day with a drinks reception and an opportunity to network with a vast number of signmakers and sign suppliers as well as taking a quick tour of the ‘sponsor’s showcase’.

An excellent three-course lunch will then be served, followed by a welcome from our host for the day (watch this space) and then the unveiling of all the award winners.

The formal part of the proceedings will be complete by around 5.00pm, although the Athena will stay open for those who wish to continue on for while longer.

The great thing about the Sign Awards is that you can get to them, enjoy the reception, lunch and the awards show, and still get home, ready for work the following day.  Of course, for those who want to stay on, Leicester has a lot to offer and, through the Athena, we can offer a number of special hotel deals.
