CIPR Excellence Awards return to Hilton London on Park Lane on 3 June 2013

With three weeks to go until the 26 February entry deadline, the CIPR is pleased to announce that the 29th CIPR Excellence Awards Dinner will be held at the Hilton London on Park Lane, on Monday 3 June 2013.

The black-tie dinner is the most prestigious annual awards event in the profession, recognising and rewarding best practice in public relations throughout the UK and acknowledging personal and team achievement at the highest professional level.

Last year’s sold-out awards dinner was compèred by Olympic medallist Colin Jackson CBE in an Olympic celebration where entrants and judges were joined by special guests Lord Coe KBE, Sharron Davies MBE, Mark Foster and Adrian Moorhouse OBE.

Rachel Dufton, Public Affairs Manager at the Royal College of Nursing, the award winner for the Outstanding In-house Public Relations Team at the 2012 CIPR Excellence Awards said:

(Last year’s) event was great fun. It was a brilliant chance to catch up with colleagues in a fun and exciting environment, not to mention at such a prestigious awards ceremony. The highlight for us was being able to go on stage and collect our award as a team.
