Virtual Awards Ceremonies

Thursday 2nd of July

Constructing Excellence SECBE Awards Ceremonies | Thursday 2nd July 2020

COVID-19 has brought innovation to our awards!  We’ve changed our judging and awarding process to create an exciting programme because all our partners, judges and participants are totally inspiring. and we all want to celebrate together.

How does the programme work?

As we are unable to run a full programme with our Gala Dinner this year, we are hosting a modified online ‘head-to-head’ judging day and awards ceremony instead. Two finalists have been selected from each category and invited to make a short online presentation to the judging panel on Thurs 2nd of July – via Zoom.  These are private events.

There will be 3 sessions running throughout the day covering our 18 award categories – each session will include 6 award categories + an awards ceremony webinar.

After the two ‘head to head’ finalist teams in a category have presented, the judging panel will discuss and decide on the winner. At the end of the session, there will be an awards ceremony webinar and everyone is invited to join.

Teams have a 50/50 chance of winning, with the champions receiving their ‘virtual’ award on the very same day. How exciting is that?

Everyone is welcome to join our award ceremony webinars.  All our finalists will receive a mention and each of our ‘head-to-head’ teams will take the platform to give you their ‘elevator pitch’ describing why their work is worthy of recognition.  You will find more information about all our finalists by following the links to our blog pages.

*** New for 2020 *** People's Choice Award:

Vote for your favourite finalist to win the new People's Choice Award! You'll find voting buttons (like the one shown here) at the bottom of each finalist blog post. This overall award embraces all categories. The winner will be announced on Thurs 2nd July 2020 during the third award ceremony, starting at 17:00.

Dress code:  Black tie
We want to add a little ‘pizzazz’ to the whole event.  It is optional, but why not dress up to make the day really special.

Share: Invite your colleagues and customers to join us. One registration gives you access to all 3 sessions.
