As I am sure you will have seen, the Made in Manchester Awards has undergone an exciting rebrand for 2020.

Building on the success of the last eight years, we have made a few alterations to help us celebrate even more of Manchester’s top young professionals.

The revamped awards reflect the changing nature of pro-manchester’s membership. Our sector groups now account for over half of our corporate members and, as sector group manager, I would love to see as many of you as possible involved on the night.

Nominations are now open – and they’re free!

We have removed the nomination charge this year to open the awards up to smaller organisations and to make it easier for you to nominate colleagues and clients.

There are a number of sector specific categories including the brand-new Technology Professional of the Year. This category joins our existing sector awards to recognise stand out young professionals in Property, Marketing and Creative & Digital industries.

Many of our other categories are sector agnostic. So whether you are a Business Development Manager in hospitality, or an in-house lawyer in sports, or an apprentice in transport, or a healthcare entrepreneur, we have an award ready for you!

Take a look at the full list of categories here.

Raise your profile with Manchester’s leading professionals

We are delighted to welcome – and welcome back – generous sponsors who make the whole project possible. There are a couple of categories still available for sponsorship so if you want to raise your profile, please contact Claire Turnbull for further information.

Join us to celebrate

The awards ceremony takes place on 7th February 2020 at The Principal (soon to be Kimpton Hotel). We are looking forward to welcoming over 500 leading professionals. The event has sold out for the last two years so be sure to secure your table as soon as possible.

Book your tickets here.

I look forward to seeing you there!
