Year on year our Awards competition has demonstrated just how much our industry has to celebrate. British Expertise is an integral part in many of the world’s most important development and infrastructure projects, delivering world-beating quality and innovation in just about every corner of the globe.

The Celebration Dinner on 11 April 2019 showcases many of the UK’s most successful and ambitious companies in these sectors. The independent judging panel, chaired by our president HRH The Duke of Gloucester, review the diverse entries that have been increasing year on year. With some changes and new categories, there are now ten opportunities for 2019.

The changes to the categories have allowed increased opportunity for both SME’s and larger companies to be successful in our Awards celebration. We know that all companies operate at different levels, so we want to be able to showcase this as a better reflection of the interests of our growing membership.

As part of Strategy International, we now work with an even wider range of business and institutions employing in excess of 7 million people delivering British expertise internationally. I hope that you will join us and become a central part of this exciting and energetic programme, recognising and rewarding the very best organisations and individuals from within our industry.
