BII launches search for Licensee of the Year 2013
Entries are being taken for the BII Licensee of Year Award 2013, which is open to all licensees across the UK.

The judging panel for this year’s award, which is sponsored by Britvic, is made up of industry experts who will decide the winner based upon:

  • A clear demonstration of the highest levels of business acumen
  • A clear commitment to staff development
  • A passion for the licensed trade and the ability to speak knowledgably about industry issues
  • Stand-out ability to be a fitting ambassador for the industry

The award will be revealed at the BII Annual Lunch, which takes place at Grosvenor House Hotel in May 2013.

BII chief executive Peter Thomas said: “Every year more and more licensees take the challenge and enter themselves for this prestigious award and we’re expecting this year’s to be the biggest yet.

“The BII Licensee of the Year Awards are about recognising and showcasing excellence in our industry, the process is as important as the outcome, because it encourages people to look at what they’re doing and find new ways to make improvements; they’re very competitive awards and bring out the best in everyone.”

Current BII Licensee of the Year, Mahdis Neghabian of The Camden Eye, London, said: “I think it’s a fantastic award and well worth entering. If you are looking to be taken seriously in the industry it’s definitely the award to win. Even if you don’t win though it’s a positive process to go through and it will give you the initiative to look for ways to drive your business forward.”

To enter, licensees should complete the first stage entry online.​ If they are successful in stage one, stage two entry forms will be sent to them.
