Causeway: Ireland Scotland Business Exchange is delighted to share that our flagship Gala Black Tie Celebration of Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland Awards Night is scheduled to take place at the Assembly Rooms, Edinburgh on the evening of Thursday 7 October 2021.
As our Causeway membership numbers and network continue to grow, the Causeway annual Awards ceremony has become a high-profile and prestigious event, attracting industry leaders and decision-makers from Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland.
Causeway is currently monitoring the situation on the ease of Covid-19 restrictions in Ireland and the UK, and it is, at the moment, our ambition to host our Awards in person in Edinburgh. However, if we discover later this is not feasible, we will still host our prestigious Awards celebration virtually, to allow our valued members, partners, and professionals from both sides of the Irish Sea to gather together to celebrate, network and share successes.
Commenting on our aspirations for this year’s Awards Celebration, Chair of Causeway David Greenlees said:
“The Covid-19 pandemic has had a dramatic impact on businesses and events globally, and while we were disappointed last year we had to make the decision to cancel our face-to-face awards ceremony, we still managed to host an enjoyable and interactive Virtual Awards, in which we brought together, online, business leaders from across Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland, and had the opportunity to showcase business success from both sides of the Irish Sea, and it was described by attendees as "a brilliant and fun, and really cleverly organised and run event" and "a well put-together evening and easily the most professional virtual event I've been to this year".
“We are committed this year to continue to highlight, through our growing network, successes within Irish, Northern Irish and Scottish business communities, and I encourage you to consider submitting nominations for our Awards now! There are also some fantastic sponsorship opportunities available for businesses.
“As we recover and emerge from such an unprecedented, challenging time, we need more than ever to come together to showcase positive stories of triumph and the connections that have helped us to build success! Whether it is online or in person, our Causeway Awards are an enjoyable evening of celebration and laughter, and also provide a great opportunity for businesses to network, collaborate and share opportunities.”
