Ashley Riley, Stansted Airport’s Head of Communications, said:
“We are extremely proud of our partnership with BiTC having sponsored these prestigious awards for the last two years. There is a great deal of expertise and good work undertaken in our region. We are always impressed with the level of entries which showcase the commitment there is in the east from businesses working in the community. We would encourage companies from across the East of England, even in these difficult economic times, to take an active role profiling their excellent work by entering the awards.”
Following the reception, the airport will host an Awards Workshop aimed at companies who are contemplating entering the awards. It will give practical advice and assistance on how to win, and include a winning presentation from Anglian Water.
