With the 2017 Sales & Marketing Awards less than two weeks away, Edinburgh-based event marketing specialists Penmex have started an official countdown to the most anticipated event in the sales and marketing calendar.

This year’s ceremony will take place on May 20th at the 5-star Grosvenor House Hotel based in the world-famous Park Lane. Located in London’s vibrant Mayfair district, just a short walk away from Hyde Park, the Grosvenor offers a luxurious experience. The invite only, Black Tie Awards Gala will be held in the iconic Great Room, which boasts a history of hosting high-profile events.

The annual event gets bigger year on year as organisers aim to outdo the previous year’s ceremony.  This year, attendees will be welcomed to the event with a red carpet, where photo opportunities and interviews will take place. After the red carpet arrival, attendees will enjoy a champagne reception followed by a 5-star dining experience. After a momentous 12 months for the UK sales and marketing industry, the event organisers are keen to host an awards ceremony that encapsulates that success and rewards attendees for their hard work and achievements with a night to remember. 

As the stand out event in the sales and marketing Calendar, the awards ceremony will be attended by industry experts and consultants from across the UK, with others flying in from the US and Australia especially for the occasion. 

Awards presented on the night will include, ‘Rookie Owner of the Year’, ‘20/20 Performance Award’, ‘Most Improved Business Owner’, ‘Administrator of the Year’ and the highly coveted ‘Business Owner of the Year Award’. In 2016, Managing Director at Penmex, Kirsty Pennal was awarded the ‘20/20 Performance Award’, recognising the achievements of Penmex expanding their client portfolio, and showing great consistency.  This year’s nominations have been kept under wraps, however, Ms Pennal is hopeful that Penmex will receive recognition for their achievements. 

The event-marketing specialists have been running a competition since the start of April for two of the firm’s top performing contractors to join Managing Director, Kirsty Pennal at this year’s ceremony, with the winners due to be announced on May 19th. 

“It’s always really inspiring and motivating to attend these types of events, seeing people take the stage to collect an award, and hearing their speeches, and I’m looking forward to another memorable night at this year’s event,” said Ms Pennal. 

Established in response to the consistent demand for alternative below the line marketing solutions, Edinburgh-based Penmex utilises the human element to deliver marketing solutions with a smile and a handshake. The Sales & Marketing Awards provides great motivation for industry professionals to put in the work and effort to ensure they are amongst the award winners.
