Now approaching its 10th year, the TOPRA Awards will once again reward excellence, wherever it may occur in regulatory affairs and recognise the achievement of individuals, teams and organisations both within TOPRA and in the wider regulatory affairs community.
There are nine awards categories, covering excellence in every aspect of regulatory affairs, including a Lifetime Achievement Award. The Awards are judged by a panel of respected figures in the regulatory industry, with nominations narrowed down to three finalists for each category. The winners in each category and the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award will be honoured at a glittering dinner and ceremony held in London in November, details of which will be announced closer to the event.
Sponsoring the Awards for Regulatory Excellence aligns your brand with championing excellence, innovation and success. It positions your business in front of the region’s top business leaders, key influencers and emerging stars. There are sponsorship opportunities to suit all types and sizes of organisation, from sole sponsorship of a specific award category through to a supportive role for the Awards as a whole. All contributions will help to create a truly special evening for the nominees and attendees.
The Awards offer enormous marketing, branding and sponsorship opportunities including;
- Your brand included in high-profile consistent advertising, direct mail, e-mail marketing and promotional material, coverage and branding on the Awards website, on social media, and in editorial coverage, before, during and after the ceremony
