Those of us who have been in the industry a long time will have seen many awards events come and go.  Several publishers and event organisers have launched awards but found it very hard to host successful events.  However one awards event that is going from strength to strength is the British Engineering Excellence Awards (BEEAs Awards), held by Findlay Media, publishers of New Electronics, Eureka and Engineering Materials.  

The BEEAs aim to demonstrate and promote the quality of engineering design within the UK and having attended the awards for several year, I must say they really do celebrate the “best of British”.  It is an extremely enjoyable event and last year, Justin Cunningham, editor of Engineering Materials did a great job as presenter.

The 2016 categories are:

  • Consultancy of the Year
  • Design Engineer of the Year
  • Design Team of the Year
  • Green Product of the Year
  • Materials Application of the Year
  • New Product of the Year (Electronic)
  • New Product of the Year (Mechanical)
  • Small Company of the Year
  • Start-up of the Year
  • Young Design Engineer of the Year

The deadline for submissions is 15th July 2016 and the winners will be announced at a gala lunch on October 6th 2016.  There is a change of venue this year and it will be held at The HAC, the London home of the Honourable Artillery Company.

More information is available on the BEEAs website.   However if you are a British Company who would like to promote your innovations, Napier can help you enter the awards and perhaps become the winner of a BEEAs award in 2016.
