BCIA Awards 2020 – DRUM ROLL PLEASE
The BCIA is delighted to announce the launch of the 2020 BCIA Virtual Awards which take place on Thursday 10 September 2020.
When we closed the entries for the BCIA Awards in December 2019 nobody could have foreseen what would happen in 2020. Even in February when the judges met for Judging Day we were all still eagerly anticipating the Awards ceremony which at that point was due to take place in April. A lot has changed since then. We moved the date to September and kept our fingers crossed, but as the months have progressed it has become increasingly obvious that we won’t be meeting in September and it will come as no great surprise that the BCIA has taken the difficult decision that the 2020 Awards will not this year take place at the Birmingham Hilton Metropole.
The BCIA Awards are not however cancelled!
The 2020 Awards saw more entries than we have ever had. The judging has taken place and the finalists have been announced. Every single finalists deserves their moment of fame. The Show will therefore go on……it is just moving to a virtual event to allow the whole industry to come together and celebrate the great achievements of the finalists.
The BCIA Awards will this year take place via YouTube and other virtual platforms on Thursday 10 September. On the night audience participation will be key, we will be asking you to dress up in your glad rags, we will also be asking you to send us pictures of you and your team ‘attending’ the Awards in whatever way you choose. We will also be sending out a unique Awards Participation Pack so the industry can join together and do what we do best….celebrate (sign up to our newsletter on the home page to receive your invite).
In fact…although we can’t get together in person we are going all out to replicate the best Awards ceremony in our industry and give everyone a night to remember – albeit a virtual one.
All that’s left for you to do is look out for your official invitation and plan who is going to be on your virtual table…..the BCIA looks forward to welcoming you to the inaugural BCIA Virtual Awards
