“I’d like to congratulate each and every one of our finalists for getting this far. We had a record number of entries this year and the quality was so high. Everyone that entered was worthy of winning and should be extremely proud of their achievements over the last year. We look forward to seeing everyone at the awards ceremony in May!” explains Clive Sawyer, CEO of EWIF.

Another NEW addition to this year’s awards line-up is the introduction of a Black Tie Reception at the famous Gherkin landmark in central London for finalists and sponsors, on the evening before the Awards Ceremony! This gives everyone a chance to come together and share their experiences as well as networking with both new and old faces.

Winners of each category will be announced at our awards ceremony on Tuesday 24th May 10:30am – 2:00pm at RBS/NatWest Building, 280 Bishopsgate in London.

You can also apply for free tickets to the Award Ceremony here. If you’re unable to attend, the day will be reported on in real-time via Twitter (@EWIF1) using the #EWIFAwards16 hashtag so make sure you tune in.
