Convince your Boss
It could be argued that some business led events offer little value. Awards based activities are different however. Ask anyone who has attended an awards ceremony for their particular industry and you’ll find that they’ve returned to their workplaces more energised, encouraged and connected. And if they happen to walk away with one of the awards, be it as an individual or as a representative of a company, the ‘feel good’ factor is even more pronounced.
To help you get the support and encouragement from your boss (or colleagues) in terms of putting forward an entry, here are some great reasons why you should participate in the Pump Industry Awards.
1. GAIN INDUSTRY RECOGNITION FOR YOUR BUSINESS OR PROFESSIONAL ACHIEVEMENTS
Involved in the sharp end of pump related systems design, development, installation and management? Leading the way in innovative thinking? Finding creative solutions to engineering challenges? Going that extra mile on behalf of your clients? Or simply bettering the overall business provision offered by your competitors?
If so, get the recognition you deserve, either individually or as part of the team, for a job well done. But not just from within your own organisation, secure professional acknowledgement from right across your industry. Let your peers witness your success and the positive reaction you will undoubtedly enjoy from your customers.
Anyone with an interest in pushing the boundaries of technical innovation and improved operational efficiencies should want to share their engineering achievements with like-minded people. Putting forward an entry in their industry’s awards programme is by far the best way to achieve this overall awareness.
2. YOU NEED TO STAY IN TOUCH WITH EXCELLENCE
Technology, environmental and energy efficiency considerations, along with best engineering practice are ever changing. New products, new application techniques, new training initiatives and new thinking are helping to change the face of the industrial and commercial landscape.
Irrespective of whether you are an entrant or not, the PIA Gala Awards Ceremony provides unparalleled opportunities to engage with the companies, technologies and innovations which are helping to shape the future direction of the pump and pump related sector.
3. GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY
PIA brings together over 250 industry professionals for a wonderful night of reward and celebration. With pre-dinner drinks, table wine, and post awards entertainment all included in the ticket price, not to mention good levels of publicity and promotion for all finalists and winners, attendance represents real value for money.
4. MEET REAL PEOPLE
There’s no substitute for face to face human interaction. Many of the most valuable moments at PIA don’t happen on the stage, they come from the one-to-one discussion with a fellow attendee during the pre-dinner drinks or during the post dinner ‘networking’ when a finalist explains an approach hitherto not considered.
5. BENEFIT FROM SOME EXCELLENT PR EXPOSURE
As a finalist in the Pump Industry Awards, as selected by the Judging Panel, your entry will receive unparalleled levels promotion, both in print and online, as part of the industry-wide voting process. If selected at the eventual winner, you will enjoy yet more promotion, equating to thousands of pounds worth of additional coverage.
6. NEED TO GIVE MORE REASONS?
- Entry is completely free of charge
- The standard entry form makes the whole process quite simple
- An ‘independent’ judging panel evaluates each entry and selects the finalists
