Page Partnership 2021 Annual Awards Dinner Exhibition

 

The PAGE group hosted their annual table top exhibition and awards dinner at the Brandon Hall Hotel & Spa in Brandon, Coventry on Thursday 14th October 2021.

The event was cancelled in 2020 and postponed from June 2021.  There was an obvious appetite for distributors and suppliers to have an enjoyable day and to catch-up at one of the first trade dinners since the start of the pandemic.

The exhibition featured over 40 suppliers showing off their products and re-establishing relationships with PAGE members.  Following the exhibition was the Awards dinner. Where over 120 distributors and suppliers enjoyed a long overdue event, creating a wonderful party atmosphere.   

Awards were presented by Brian Hayward to some of the best suppliers and distributors in the UK recognising exemplar levels of service, commitment and product quality.  

Scores for Supplier service and efficiency are taken from a recent survey from all the PAGE members. Highlighting the very best PAGE suppliers.  Supplier Silver awards were presented to Bizz Badge Company, Laltex Promo, and Mid Ocean Brands.   The overall winner and Gold award was won by WCM&A.

The Distributors awards were split into 3 categories based on turnover and scored by the Suppliers, recognising their professionalism in the promotional products industry.  In the under £1,000,000 category, the Silver award went to ASP Promotions Ltd, with the Gold was awarded to BH1 Promotions.  In the £1,000,000 - £3,000,000 category, the Silver award went to Steel City Ltd, and the Gold award went to Sussex Promotions Limited. Finally, in the over £3,000,000 plus category, the Silver award went to LSi Ltd, and the Gold went to Allwag Promotions Ltd.  

After-dinner entertainment was provided by a return visit from Alfie Moore (ex-policeman turned comedian) who last entertained diners 10 years ago.  In the meantime Alfie has been busy hosting his BBC Radio 4 show “It’s a fair cop”. Following this was a brilliant showcase of music from local multi-instrumentalist Thom Kirkpatrick. As ever, the event involved a serious amount of networking with a late night for many.
