Half of the sponsorship packages available at this year’s fbe East Midlands Chairman’s Awards Dinner have been snapped up already.

Now companies keen to be involved are being urged to get in touch soon if they are interested in the remaining three sponsorship opportunities.

Mitsubishi Electric has been confirmed as the main sponsor of the awards event, which takes place at the Albert Hall, Nottingham, on Thursday 4th October.

Survey Hub has been announced as the sponsor of the Non-Residential Award, with Faithful + Gould securing the Residential Award sponsorship.

Organisers of the event are now looking forward to hearing from firms that would like to sponsor the drinks reception, the Regeneration Award or the Rising Star Award.

“We are delighted to have secured three such well-known names as sponsors for this year’s fbe East Midlands Chairman’s Award,” said Emma Atkins, regional chairman of the fbe East Midlands. “The fbe awards night is a popular fixture on the region’s construction and property development calendar, attracting an excellent crowd. It’s a really good opportunity for sponsors to raise their profile in the East Midlands construction sector, and we look forward to hearing from more firms that are keen to be involved.”

Nominations from Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire are now being invited for the fbe East Midlands Awards 2018, which recognise and reward some of the best projects in the region and turn the spotlight on the sector’s rising stars.

There are four categories in the awards – Residential, Non-Residential, Regeneration and Rising Star Awards – with the best scheme crowned the overall winner.

Projects must have been completed between September 2017 and August 2018, with the Rising Star Award open to individuals, who are under 30 years of age on 4th October 2018 and who have shown outstanding achievements in their field, whether that be in construction, design or associated professional or support services for the industry.

Tickets for the black-tie event, taking place from 7pm at the Albert Hall, North Circus Street, on 4th October, are also now on sale, priced £60 for fbe members, £70 for non-members, with a table of ten costing £650.

“We’ve already sold a number of tables and on previous occasions the event has sold out well in advance, so we do advise anyone who’s planning to attend the awards night to book early, online,” added Emma, practice & business development manager at architects Maber.

The deadline for nominations for the awards is Friday 7th September 2018.  Forms, information and tickets for the Chairman’s Awards dinner are available at fbeonline.co.uk/regions-branches/east-midlands/east-midlands/events/fbe-east-midlands-chairmans-awards-dinner/
