Made in Northern Ireland Awards 2017

Insider is pleased to announce the launch of the Made in Northern Ireland Awards 2017. The awards will recognise and reward manufacturing companies based in Northern Ireland that have demonstrated success across the board in categories such as innovation, exporting and technology.
In previous years, the Made in Northern Ireland Awards have formed part of Insider’s Northern Ireland Dealmakers Awards. However, the 2017 event will be a dedicated separate lunchtime event. This, together with the fact that we are increasing the number of awards from 4 to 8, reflects both the importance of the manufacturing sector in the region but also the increasing interest in the awards themselves.
The Made in Northern Ireland Awards are part of a national suite of manufacturing events that Insider hosts around the UK. The winners from the regional awards will automatically become finalists in the prestigious annual national awards – Made in the UK, taking place on the 22 June in Liverpool.
There will be eight award categories:
- Apprenticeship/Training Scheme Award
- Innovation Award
- Exporter Award
- Medical & Life Sciences Award
- Technology Award
- Food and Drink Award
- SME Manufacturing Company of the Year (turnover below £25m)
- Large Manufacturing Company of the Year (turnover £25m and above)
The closing date for entries is Friday 31st March 2017.
This year the Made in Northern Ireland Awards are supported by the following organisations:
- Manufacturing NI
- Invest NI
- Centre for Competitiveness
- Northern Ireland Polymers Association
The shortlists will be announced in early April, with the winners to be revealed at the awards lunch at the Europa Hotel in Belfast on 12 May 2017.
If you wish to enter the awards or book tickets to attend please contact Lauren Ainsworth, 0161 907 9735.
