Personalised Trophies & The Importance Of Awards Season For UK Businesses

The end of another year is the perfect opportunity to reflect on the various milestones and achievements a business has hit over the previous 12 months. Whether it's new clients, record sales, a brand expansion or something else entirely, there's certain to be a variety of things worth celebrating.

With 2019's professional awards season about to kick-off, there's no time quite like the present to take a moment to consider the various benefits of celebrating your staff and colleagues. 

Shining A Light At Industry Awards Can Help Staff Strive For More

Industries across the UK are constantly celebrating brilliant people, creative campaigns and jaw-dropping new launches that are worth raising a glass (or two) to.

According to insights shared by Boost, upwards of 3,500 business awards take place across the UK each year. Whether your company is playing host to them or you have simply nominated your team for a celebration hosted externally, industry-wide awards present a fantastic opportunity to you and your colleagues.

Offering the chance for your hard-working team to have their efforts recognised on wider scales, awards ceremonies can also present the opportunity to see what your rivals are up to, as well. (Hey – a little competition is always healthy!)

On a more simplistic level, awards ceremonies are fun. A chance to dress up, enjoy a lovely dinner and network with peers is pretty irresistible, and there’s also the potential for some team-bonding, too.

Mark An Industry Celebration In Style With Promotional Awards

If you're planning an industry-aimed celebration, one thing's for sure: you're going to need trophies. You might be handing them out with just your branding engraved on to them, or you might be selling them as part of a wider sponsorship package.

Either way, Total Merchandise is delighted to offer a wide range of glittering personalised trophies, which are perfect for bearing the names of winners as well as the logo of your business and any additional branding you want on there. 

With prices starting as low as £8.55 each for our engraved Jade Glass Bevelled Crescent Awards, we have something to suit all marketing budgets and ambitions. 

Whether you need to keep sponsors happy or simply want the names of your winners, we have the perfect option to suit. Browse our edit of sparkling ideas below and contact us today to get your Rapid Quote.
