BCIA Virtual Awards 2020

We are delighted to announce that this year’s BCIA Awards will take place via our dedicated event platform Hopin where you can meet and mingle with all of your industry friends and colleagues in the networking area before heading over to the main stage to find out who will win this year’s BCIA Awards.

When you enter the virtual platform head over to the sessions tab on the left hand side which gives you access to our networking area. The networking area is set out just like the room would be on the night so if you’re a sponsor, or if you had booked a table at the 2020 Awards then look out for your company name – all you have to do is click on your ‘table’ to gain access to your own networking area where you can see and chat with your colleagues – it’s just like a zoom meeting but much more fun! Don’t worry if you didn’t get chance to book a table – there’s plenty of spare tables for everyone in our virtual platform – all you need to do is arrange to meet your friends in one place. When the time comes for the main event we’ll ask you to head over to the stage where we will announce the winners of this year’s prestigious BCIA Awards.

Once the winners have been announced don’t go away because we are delighted to announce that, courtesy of our sponsor Global Associates, the fabulous Suzi Ruffell will join us on the main stage. We know you like to party so once we have finished on the main stage guests will be able to return to the networking area which will be open until 11pm.

Celebrate in style

We want to make it a night to remember so here are a few things to help you prepare to celebrate in style.

Place Cards

A true BCIA Awards experience is not complete without the search for your place card once you have found your table.

To make this an authentic experience you can download your place card here. Simply cut it out, write your name on and use it on the night.

Drinks Bottle Collar

Once your drinks are chilled you can download your BCIA Awards drinks bottle collar here. Simply print your own, cut it out and add it to your bottle of choice on the night.

Book of the Night

Download your Book of the Night here so you can see who all of the finalists are. 


We’d love to see your photos showing how you celebrated the 2020 BCIA Awards – don’t forget to include your place card and drinks bottle collar in the photo. If you’re also a finalist then please send us a picture of you or your team with your finalist’s certificate. Please email photos to robyn@keystonecomms.co.uk as we will be putting together a photo montage to commemorate the 2020 BCIA Awards after the event.

Make a donation to Mind

Tonight’s event is in aid of Mind, a charity which provides advice and support to empower millions of people across the UK with mental health problems. Every year at the BCIA Awards you raise money for the President’s Charity by making a donation to take part in Heads and Tails. Sadly we can’t offer Heads and Tails this year but now, more than ever Mind needs your support so we have set up a fundraising page for the 2020 BCIA Awards and we are urging you to make a donation.

The fundraising page will be open until Monday 14 September and all donations go directly to Mind. Please leave a contact email address or telephone number when you make your donation as we will be choosing one supporter at random after the page closes who will win a bottle of champagne.
