A final call for entries to the 2019 PPMA Group Industry Awards has been issue ahead of the event.
All companies within the packaging and processing sector are invited to submit their free submission by the deadline of 17 July 2019.
Held at the National Conference Centre (NCC) on 1 October 2019, the Awards evening brings together more than 300 industry professionals and stakeholders to celebrate the finest examples of innovation, smart manufacturing and entrepreneurship.
Award entry submissions are open to all PPMA Group members (PPMA, BARA and UKIVA) and others involved in the industry.
There are 12 Awards categories in total, 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 also have the opportunity to be recognised 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 Awards, which comprises a three-course gala dinner, will be hosted by UK television presenter and magician, Stephen Mulhern, who has presented on Britain’s Got Talent, Catchphrase and Big Star’s Little Star.
