PPMA awards return to celebrate cream of manufacturing industry
Manufacturers from across packaging, processing and robotics sectors will be celebrated at the 2019 PPMA Group Industry Awards will be held at the National Conference Centre (NEC), Birmingham this autumn.
The event will take place on the first day of the show on 1 October 2019, and are free to enter for group members, with a deadline for submission on 17 July.
Now in its eighth year, the accolades bring together more than 300 industry professionals and stakeholders to celebrate the finest examples of innovation, smart manufacturing and entrepreneurship.
There are 12 categories, ranging from most innovative technologies in processing, packaging, robotics, vision systems and ancillary equipment, to achievements in sales, export and the environment. The ‘Apprentice of the Year’ Award serves to acknowledge the most promising young talent within the processing and packaging, robotics and automation and industrial vision industries.
Companies that have developed a comprehensive apprenticeship or training programme have the opportunity to be recognised too through the PPMA best award. All entries will be judged by a panel of eight independent industry experts, including academia, end-users, editors and engineers.
This year’s honours featuring a three-course gala dinner, will be hosted by UK television presenter and magician, Stephen Mulhern, who has appeared as host on Britain’s Got Talent, Catchphrase and Big Star’s Little Star.
