Awards Update

During this period of economic upheaval, we have taken the decision to postpone this year’s PPMA Group Industry Awards.

While our annual awards event remains a highlight in the UK calendar, much of the planning, award submissions and judging are administered between April and June.

For that reason, we have taken the practical measures to defer this year’s event based on the business challenges that many member companies face at this time. We are, however, looking at options of potentially holding a gala dinner at PPMA Show 2020.


About the awards

Celebrating its eighth year in 2019, the awards brought together more than 450 industry professionals and influencers from the world of processing and packaging machinery and recognises the finest examples of innovation, smart manufacturing and entrepreneurship.
