C&IT Awards 2014
On Friday 19th September the events industry gathered at the Grand Connaught rooms in London for the Conference and Incentive Travel Excellence Awards. The drp team enjoyed a hugely successful night by winning the most coveted prize of the evening, Agency of the Year. Those in attendance also saw drp recognised for our work with Sainsbury's and JCB, winning the Grocery & Household and Automotive categories respectively. We also won three highly commended awards, two for Chiltern Railways and another for Sainsbury's.
Dale Parmenter, drp CEO was thrilled with the recognition the team received and had this to say, "Everybody at drp works so hard throughout the year delivering exceptional results for our clients. It's always an honour to be recognised for the work we do, especially when you see the incredible level of quality produced across the board by the industry. These awards are judged by our industry peers on both corporate and agency side so you know that winning prizes for our projects and Agency of the Year is a real rubber stamp of approval. Our whole team can be proud of the invaluable contribution they have made over the past 18 months and this prize is a fantastic reward for the team."
The Agency of the Year category assess agencies against a wide ranging set of criteria including financial performance, business growth, dedication to the industry and CSR. drp's commitment to apprenticeship schemes, continued dedication to their ISO14001 and ISO120121 environmental management standards, growth across all areas of the business and launch of new service areas meant the judges saw fit to send drp home with the evening's coveted Agency of the Year prize. This year has seen drp grow significantly as a business, most recently with our rebrand and hitting 150 team members.
