The Friendly Awards
You are warmly invited to the 5th Annual Market People Awards on a date that will be confirmed shortly in 2021, 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 contingents of the Market to recognise individuals, teams and companies who have made an outstanding contribution in the industry. This year, our Awards Night will take on a sparkling Latin American theme, as we bring you our Salsa Extravaganza and the rhythms of South American ring out across the Ball Room of the Leonardo Royal Hotel, St Pauls. Lights, sounds, camera, action!
The Market People Awards have become a highlight for many professionals and firms across this unique trading environment. 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 2021.
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 2021
London’s Air Ambulance is the charity that delivers an advanced trauma team to London’s most seriously injured patients.
Using a helicopter from 08:00 to sunset, and rapid response cars at night or in adverse weather situations, London's Air Ambulance brings the hospital to the patient when time is critical. We perform innovative and potentially life-saving procedures usually found in the emergency department on-scene. The team, consisting of an advanced trauma doctor, paramedic and consultant on most missions, can perform treatments such as open heart surgery, blood transfusions and general anaesthetic by the roadside.
By providing intervention as quickly as possible after injury, we aim to give patients the best chance of survival, and best quality of life, after trauma.
We serve the 10 million people that live work and travel within the M25, treating an average of five patients every day. The most common incidents we attend include road traffic collisions, stabbings and shootings, falls from height and incidents on the rail network.
