Market People Awards 2018

The Friendly Awards

You are warmly invited to the 3rd Annual Market People Awards on Wednesday 14th November 2018, brought to you by LMForums, the highly popular networking and thought leadership group for insurance professionals and those supplying this important trading community with valuable products and services.

Each year, LMForums brings professionals together from all corners of the Market to recognise individuals, teams and companies who have made an outstanding contribution in the industry. This year, our Awards will be bigger and better than ever - featuring some new award categories. We are also delighted to announce that the event will have an amazing Venetian Carnival theme - so get those masks and costumes ready; it’s going to be a ball.

Our Awards have become a highlight for many professionals and firms across our Market. We operate a genuinely fair, open and transparent online nomination system, allowing any person, be they a frontline practitioner, a Chief Executive, a graduate or someone working for a supplier, to nominate an individual, team or company. Six independent senior level Market executives will then assess all nominations and select our worthy winners. They will be presented with one of our coveted awards and will feature in our Hall of Fame for 2018.

We invite you to join us for a very special evening and you’ll be sure of a very warm welcome. Read on for details of tables and Award sponsorship options.

LMForums Nominated Charity for 2018

Kids Inspire

Each year, LMForums is proud to support a Charity who we feel is making a real difference. This year, we are delighted to be partnering with Kids Inspire; an amazing charity supporting children and their families. Kids Inspire helps disadvantaged young people turn their lives around and gives them back their future.

The group supports vulnerable young people who are at an educational, social, and/ or economic disadvantage and who might be experiencing relationship abuse, anxiety or be subject to bullying. Many of these young people are recovering from trauma or dealing with emerging mental health issues. The wonderful team at Kids Inspire is there to support these young people at these critical moments, when often the State is unable to help.

At the Market People Awards on 14th November 2018 there will be a Grand Draw, featuring many special prizes. We encourage all guests to buy a few tickets and help support the incredible work undertaken by Kids Inspire.
