INDEX DESIGN AWARDS 2021 GIVES INDUSTRY A REASON TO CELEBRATE13 Jan. 2021
[Entry Deadline: 28th Feb 2021] Back for 2021, the region’s design community is invited to enter the INDEX Design Awards with 17 spotlight categories and a host of new business benefits.
Entries are now open for the INDEX Design Awards 2021 as the region’s longest-running industry celebration returns to headline the world-renowned international trade exhibition.
An anchor event of INDEX Dubai for almost three decades, and recognised for its independently assessed, unbiased judging process, the INDEX Awards program is a genuine reflection of regional industry success.
Entrants have until 28th February 2021 to submit a nomination in the 17 diverse categories, which cover a broad mix of project, company and individual nominations. The opportunity presents a chance for the region’s highest achievers, leaders and rising stars to be rewarded for their contribution to a challenging project landscape in 2020.
“The occasion will bring together 350+ influential leaders, decision makers and project influencers from the regional interior design community to recognise and celebrate not only the abundant creativity of our industry in 2020, but to deliver some much-needed positivity following an extremely difficult trading year. The determination of individuals and businesses to remain agile and resilient has been fundamental in driving projects across the region. There is much to celebrate!” said Katie McBride, INDEX Event Director.
The INDEX Design Awards are more than just an annual opportunity for peer recognition and business networking. Past winners include Bishop Design, Wilson Associates, Broadway Interiors, Bluehaus Group, Hoehler + alSalmy and dwp, who have all benefited in several ways.
“Winning, and being named as a shortlisted entrant, is a fantastic, highly cost-effective way to raise your profile, generate new business leads and stand out from the competition. At a time when marketing budgets are incredibly tight, having your name out there in the public domain, thanks to the huge amount of publicity the awards generate, has untold benefits without having to outlay significant financial resources,” said Selini Bishop, PR Executive at Bishop Design.
Being a long-established and highly credible awards programme, the INDEX Design Awards are also a benchmark for the industry, and a credible endorsement of any design firm’s commitment to quality, creativity and innovation. A quality seal for both current and prospective clients, previous winners have also reported benefits in building strong supplier relationships and winning new clients.
Positive employee motivation has also been cited as an additional ‘win’. Platinum Sponsor for the event, VitrA, echoes this sentiment. XXXX, CEO of VitrA explains: “Employee motivation is one aspect of business that we often don’t pay enough attention to. In the last 12 months, we’ve noted how declining employee morale has been an issue faced by many CEOs and business owners that we work with. Through our association with the Awards, we want to recognise the hard work and achievements not only of individuals in our community, but of teams as a whole. A hotly contested award will help boost team morale, increase job satisfaction and support employee retention.”
The INDEX Design Awards 2021 will be held at Dubai World Trade Centre from 7-11 pm on 1st June 2021. In line with dmg events’ COVID-19 All Secure protocols and commitment to event safety and security, this year’s awards will be a standing drinks reception in a dedicated reception and presentation area.
The show is sponsored by VitrA (Platinum Sponsor) and Scientechnic Lighting Solutions (Gold Sponsor).
