AWE wins silver for Best Event in industry awards

AWE had reason to celebrate after being recognised as an industry leader by the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) – in recognition of the well-received community showcase which took place at the Burghfield CSA in the summer of 2015.

AWE received a Silver Award in the Best Event category of the CIPR PRide Awards for the Anglia, Thames and Chiltern region.

The AWE Showcase saw visitors from the local community coming in their hundreds to find out more about AWE’s unique mission and history – including speaking to our experts about cutting-edge science, technology, engineering and maths; educational initiatives with local schools and colleges, and how AWE helps to protect the environment.

AWE Showcase project lead, Gemma Jones, said: “The showcase was a great event and it wouldn’t be the success it was without the large number of visitors who took time out to come and see us – along with the help and support of the teams right across the business.

A team from Corporate Communications received the accolade on behalf of the business at an awards evening held in Cambridge.

AWE’s Media and PR Manager, Val Hincks, said: “We were delighted and very proud to receive the award on behalf of AWE and all of our colleagues across the business whose efforts and hard work made the showcase event such an overwhelming success.”
