The awards programme has been developed to recognise excellence and achievement within the adhesives and sealants industry.

With a gala evening celebration planned, the BASA Awards are now open for entry to all member companies.

“This is a very exciting moment for us, and for the sector as a whole,” says Lorna Williams, BASA CEO. “Issues such as quality, training, health & safety and sustainability have been key concerns of BASA members for decades, and I believe it is a great step forward that we now have an awards programme which formally recognises achievement and excellence in these and a number of other areas. We are really looking forward to maximum engagement from the industry in the BASA Awards – and of course we look forward to receiving your entries and seeing everybody in November!”

The Award categories are as follows (sponsors correct at the time of going to press):

• Manufacturer of the Year

• Excellence in Supply & Services - sponsored by Rakem Ltd

• Marketing Campaign of the Year

• Best Product Packaging

• Process Safety

• Excellence in Training & Development - sponsored by F. Ball and Co. Ltd

• Community Engagement

• Young Achiever

• Environment & Sustainability Initiative

• Innovation - sponsored by Azelis UK Ltd

The judging panel for each category will consist of a team of senior industry professionals, a representative from the sponsor and a past BASA chair.

A number of sponsorship opportunities are available to support the awards. Enquiries regarding sponsorship are welcome.

“This is a new and excellent opportunity to raise your profile, align your brand with excellence, and give back to the industry that has given us so much,” said Williams.

In addition to association with the quality positioning of the awards, all sponsors will also benefit from the following:

• A table of ten at the Awards night
• The option to present the award on the night for the category you are sponsoring
• A place on the judging panel for the award

The price of the sponsorship package is £3,750.00 + VAT. Companies cannot enter an award they are sponsoring but can still enter any other category.

In addition to the category sponsorships, there are also other sponsorship opportunities. These include:

• Table favours provided by the sponsor and featuring your logo
