Usually held at the Grand Hotel Brighton, the FPA Awards event includes an afternoon exhibition of those products and services short-listed and a chance to network over afternoon tea. The evening kicks off with the drinks reception and carries on through the night with a sumptuous dinner, well-known celebrity host, fantastic entertainment and, of course, the excitement of the awards themselves. Some 14 awards are presented to recognise the best products, services and service the industry has to offer. 

Entering the awards

Entering the 2022 Awards is easy and we are looking forward to a record number of entries, having had no Awards in 2021.
