Market People Awards 2019

The Friendly Awards

You are warmly invited to the 4th Annual Market People Awards on Tuesday 12th November 2019, brought to you by LMForums, the 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 and we’ve had to move to new premises to accomodate the demand. We are also delighted to announce that the event will have an amazing Show Time theme - so get ready for lights, music, magic, sparkle and some incredible vocal talent.

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 2019.

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 opportunities.

LMForums Nominated Charity for 2019

Each year, LMForums selects a charity to support at the Market People Awards and our other social events. We are delighted to have selected Rainbow Trust for 2019. The charity undertakes a range of incredible work supporting young people with serious illnesses, along with their families. We invite everyone to give generously and help make a difference to the treatment, support and wellbeing of children in our city and around the UK.

Rainbow Trust pairs each family with a dedicated expert Family Support Worker to help them face and make the most of each new day. Their Family Support Workers work with families in extreme and uncertain situations, so that they don’t have to manage alone. With the Charity’s support, families have more time to spend with their family doing what they feel is most important when that time may be limited and even more precious. Rainbow Trust are there for families from diagnosis, through treatment and if necessary, bereavement and uniquely, they support families wherever it’s needed and for as long as it’s needed.

There are more than 6,500 families in London who have a seriously ill child or newborn baby and who would benefit from Rainbow Trust’s bespoke service. They currently support less than a third of these families. It is their intention to expand geographically and introduce new services to meet this total demand and your generosity today will help them urgently support more families in crisis. Thank you.

If you’re looking to create some fond memories with friends, clients and prospects, then the 2019 Market People Awards will not disappoint and we’ve a new home this year; the prestigious Banking Hall on Cornhill, right opposite the Bank of England, only five minutes from the Lloyd’s Building. Each year our annual spectacular has a distinct theme and this year we thought we’d take it up a notch - and that’s saying something after the stunning Venetian Ball of 2018.

This year is “It’s Time to put on a Show” and we’ve lined up some leading artists, singers and dancers to bring the “show” to EC3. There’ll be colour, lights, music and maybe a few surprises along the way!

After you’ve enjoyed some incredible cuisine, brought to you by a team of talented chefs and seen eighteen very worthy winners pick up their sparkling trophies, the evening will continue with music, laughter and dancing, until 11.30pm. Unlimited wines, beers and soft drinks will be available right up to the end of the evening, so enjoy yourself, have fun with your colleagues and guests and make some new friends along the way.

People tell us all the time that they always remember our events and have such a good time. We take great pride in putting on a wonderful evening for our friends across the Market and we invite you to be part of it. This is an opportunity to be part of something very special and you’ll be talking about it for some time to come.

Let the celebrations begin!
