Leicester companies celebrate in style at the Trade Association
Forum Annual Best Practice Awards
Leicester, UK - 31st July 2008
The Michael Associates team spent the evening of Thursday
24th July in the glamorous surroundings of the main ballroom
at the Intercontinental London Park Lane Hotel, as guests
of British Precast, at the Trade Association Forum Annual
Best Practice Awards.
Nominated for both the Website of the Year and Annual Review
of the Year awards, British Precast invited Michael Associates,
as the new media agency that collaborated with them on both
shortlisted entries, to join their team to celebrate evening.
The awards, presented by Radio 4 regular, Sandy Toksvig,
were entertaining, with guests responding enthusiastically,
although not always appreciatively in the case of the Associations
representing Mortgage Lenders and Estate Agents, to award
nominee and winners announcements.
British Precast were unsuccessful in their bid to clinch
the award in either of their nominated categories. Marketing
Manager, Anita Ladva said of the evening; “It’s
a little disappointing not to have won this evening, however
this is the first time we have been shortlisted and it has
been fantastic to get this recognition from the Trade Association
Forum Awards panel. It has made us all the more determined
to return next year and to take an award home with us.”
Michael Cheung, Creative Director of Michael Associates
said, “We have had a terrific evening and are honoured
to be here as guests of British Precast; it’s been
great to see them recognised as promoting best practice amongst
trade associations. We would like to thank Martin Clarke,
British Precast’s Chief Executive for inviting us and
we wish them success for next year’s awards.”
British Precast’s shortlisted website can be seen

is also available for download.
