Staged on Tuesday 9th May 2017, at the National Conference Centre near Birmingham, the MCI Gala Awards Dinner will once again bring together the entire motion control industry in a celebration of business and professional excellence. Recognising and rewarding the achievements of both individuals and companies operating within this important industry sector, personal endeavour, technical innovation, engineering advancement and commercial acumen will all be acknowledged and celebrated.
Industry wide engagement
Produced by Touchwave Media in conjunction with the British Fluid Power Association (BFPA), the British Fluid Power Distributors Association (BFPDA) the British Compressed Air Society (BCAS) – which collectively comprise the UK Motion Control Alliance – and GAMBICA, the awards will build on the successes of the inaugural 2016 programme. With well-deserved recognition given a host of leading industry names, such as, Rockwell Automation, Danfoss Drives, Mattei Compressors, PI, Parker Hannifin and Brammer and sponsorship provided by the likes of Bosch Rexroth, Beaumanor Engineering, BEKO TECHNOLOGIES, ABB and Hydraulics & Pneumatics, the MCI Awards can already claim wide industry engagement.
Eight awards are up for grabs at the 2017 event.
- Technical Innovation of the Year
- Environmental Contribution/Energy Efficiency Award
- Project of the Year
- Distributor of the Year
- Manufacturer of the Year
- Contribution to Skills & Training Award
- Engineer of the Year
- Lifetime Achievement Award
Call for nominations
Entries are being sought for any company, product, application or individual within the motion control arena whether in Hydraulics, Pneumatics, Compressed Air or Electro-Mechanical Drives. Individuals can put forward entries for themselves and their own company, or they can nominate others that they know merit recognition. The online entry process couldn’t be easier, so anyone wishing to play their part in highlighting engineering excellence should visit the MCI Awards website – http://mci-awards.com.
Closing date for entries
The closing date for all entries is 5.00pm on Thursday 16th March 2017. So for those wanting industry-wide recognition for a job well done, be it for technical innovation or application know-how, for environmental consideration or distribution and supply, they should make a note of this important date.
It is completely free of charge to enter the awards, but the promotional value associated with being selected as a finalist is worth many hundreds of pounds. And for those individuals and companies who become one of the eight winners, the promotional benefit is even greater.
