The CIHT South West Awards celebrate the very best the region offers across the key areas of highways and transportation. The Awards will be judged by leaders in the sector including CIHT President, Martin Tugwell and CIHT South West Chair, Chris Shipway.
Our CIHT South West virtual awards ceremony will take place on 24th March 2021 as our annual celebration of achievements in the region from the last calendar year. Nominations were submitted in February and at this event the winners will be announced in our five categories Sustainability, Collaboration, Innovation, Emerging Professional of the Year and Transportation Project of the Year. The nominations have been scored by members of the committee to determine the winners. We’ll also be announcing the winner of our recent Emerging Professionals Presentation Competition.
Although we unfortunately won’t be running this event in person with our traditional black-tie dinner, we’ll still be aiming to bring the style, sparkle and pizzaz to you. Black tie attire not required but encouraged!
The following will be awarded during the event.
