CIHT East of England Awards 2019

On a glorious sunny evening, on the banks of the River Cam, the East of England Region held their second Awards Ceremony during the Annual Dinner Dance.  The Dinner Dance has a long history in the Region and Former East Midlands and East Anglia Branches and returned this year to the Double Tree Hotel in Cambridge. It is the most loved evening in the calendar where past, present and future members network with guests and partners. The black tie event started with a formal welcome to Guests, Members and the President before a three course meal. After which the outgoing Chair, Andy Denman provided an overview of his relationship with the CIHT and the network it has created. Matthew Lugg, as President of the CIHT provided a humorous overview of his long standing history in the Region followed by some of the challenges he is addressing during his Presidential year.

The highlight of the evening was when Keith Fountain, Former East Midlands Chair and Judge of the Award presented four awards to the region. Entries were of a high standard with very few scores differentiating the entries,  congratulations go to all who were shortlisted and particularly to the winners.
