drp won the prestigious Laurus Award at the 2014 Eventia Awards along with 3 other prizes at the prestigious association award ceremony. The drp team also picked up a highly coveted CorpComms award for our work with Sainsbury's. The Eventia Awards, the last of their kind before the event becomes the EVCOM Experience Awards in 2015, was held on the 26th November at the London Hilton Park Lane, rewarding and recognising the leading projects, suppliers and agencies in the events industry today. As well as picking up the Laurus Award, drp also picked up bronze for our work with JCB in the UK Conference category and finally picked up the silver award for Agency of the Year.
The Eventia Laurus Award is awarded to the most outstanding event achieved with a budget of 15,000 or less. The Chiltern Railway's Senior Team Development Programme provided fantastic results for the business and delivered exceptional savings for the business, but also helped to make immediate changes to some of their procedures. This particular project has been recognised and awarded at various award ceremonies throughout the year.
The CorpComms awards recognise the leading projects delivered by agencies and brands throughout the year in all fields of communication, be they live digital or screen. The drp team were thrilled to win the Best Internal Event category for the multi award-winning Sainsbury's Our Conference event which is a perfect example of how communication needs to be multi-faceted and multi-channel in today's environment.
Group CEO of drp, Dale Parmenter, commented on the successful evening and what it means to be recognised in the association awards, "It's great to pick up awards for the work we do with clients such as Sainsbury's and Chiltern Railways. The entire team has been working extremely hard throughout the year to deliver outstanding projects and our creativity and focus on tangible results has been recognised by these prestigious ceremonies and a judging panel of our industry peers. We wouldn't be able to win awards if it wasn't for our clients as their confidence in us and our working relationships allow us to keep delivering exceptional results year on year."
