We are excited to confirm the celebrity host for the 2018 Construction Marketing Awards gala dinner! Irishman Andrew Ryan, one of the most exciting talents in recent years; in demand as an act and an MC.
Andrew’s storytelling abilities and cheeky, friendly demeanor make him a natural observational stand-up and one of the most in-demand acts on the UK comedy circuit. He has performed stand-up on Russell Howard’s Good News, Edinburgh Comedy Fest Live, Comedy Central at The Comedy Store, and Funny Rotten Scoundrels.
2017 saw Andrew return to Ireland to perform to sold out audiences in Dublin and Cork, as well as selling out his entire run at the Edinburgh Fringe (‘hard not to enjoy’ Daily Record). Andrew has also made appearances on TV3’s The 6 O’Clock Show and BBC1 NI’s The Blame Game Andrew’s new show ‘Sure, You Know Yourself’ won Best New Show at the Leicester Comedy Festival Awards in 2018.
We are thrilled that he will be bringing his winning style to the Construction Marketing Awards!
The 18th Construction Marketing Awards promise to be bit different, with a new celebrity host and a new venue. The prestigious Hilton, London Bankside hotel is a ‘design-led’ hotel only a stone’s throw from the Tate Modern, the Shard and Borough Market. The dinner will be served in the stunning 570m² ballroom, which guest access via a sweeping staircase, following the welcome drinks served on the mezzanine level, overlooking the ballroom.
The sponsors of the Construction Marketing Awards will also be hosting pre-dinner drinks in a dedicated Sponsors lounge adjacent to the ballroom.
To make the most of this luxurious location we have negotiated a special bedroom rate for dinner guests.
As in previous year’s we will also be running our light-hearted competition for the best promotional giveaway. A talking point over dinner, this competition allows companies who are proud of their branded merchandise to submit examples, which are placed on each table for guests to vote on and select a winner.
Following dinner guests will have the opportunity to shake their stuff on the dance floor. For those who would prefer to relax then we are proud to provide The Blue Lounge, sponsored by MRA Marketing. This is a new addition to the gala dinner, it is a low-key bar area, providing the opportunity to drink, relax and socialise with other dinner guests.
There is so much to be excited about for the 2018 Construction Marketing Awards! Not forgetting of course, the all important award presentation. Entries have now closed, and the judges are busy reviewing them. The much awaited shortlist will be announced at the end of October.
