A rewarding experience for awards events

The dust has barely settled on our sponsorship support for the 20th anniversary Glasgow Business Awards than we now turn our attention to the Institute of Directors (IoD) Scotland Director of the Year Awards, which take place in March 2018.

It’s an honour for Connect to be associated with a number of the prestigious awards that take place every year on the Scottish business calendar. And for many good reasons. They are excellent platforms for brand awareness and showcasing the creative work we do. They are also great for business. We have a number of clients who were first introduced to us at business awards and the rest, as the old saying goes, is history.

The Glasgow Business Awards, organised by the Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, attracts about 700 attendees every October and 2017 was our fifth year of sponsorship of the Excellence in Communications category.

As publishers of the Chamber’s bi-monthly award-winning Glasgow Business magazine we get the opportunity to produce the awards brand, which we’ve changed every year, giving it the most radical overhaul yet for its 20th year. You can read more about the work we did here.

Next year will be our fourth year of supporting the IoD’s annual awards that celebrate the business achievements of managers, directors and entrepreneurs from companies across Scotland. Our sponsorship extends to creating the brand for each annual event and to producing all of the printed materials needed to make the event a success.

Managing Director Alan Ramsay said: “Providing our strategy and creative services for events and awards on a sponsorship basis has been an excellent way for us to build our business and over the years.

“It’s a real honour to be associated with the likes of Glasgow Chamber and the Institute of Directors and their awards provide us with marketing opportunities that are hard to beat.”

In 2017, we supported the Professional Publishers Association (PPA) Scotland with the branding of its flagship Magfest event held in Edinburgh and we’ve previously supported the Chartered Institute of Public Relations Scottish awards with branding and sponsorship. You can read more about Magfest here.

Our very own Scottish Dental Show and Awards take place every year attracting more than 2,000 visitors. The 2018 show is now open for registration.

If you require branding, print collateral and audio-visual support for events, shows and awards then please contact us for advice.
