Glasgow Award Ceremony
Thursday, May 25, 2023
After eager demand, the RoSPA Awards will make their return to Scotland for 2023 for both a daytime and evening ceremony. Returning to Glasgow, a city famed for its culture, vibrant energy and creative scene, makes 2023’s awards celebrations hard to miss. An impressive line-up of speakers at our co-located Health and Safety Excellence Forum, gives you another great reason to join us for a warm Glaswegian welcome.
Daytime Awards Ceremony | Double Tree by Hilton, Glasgow Central
Any number of guests are welcome to attend the daytime presentation, allowing all who have contributed to the organisation's achievements to celebrate their success. Informal seating will be available allowing supporters to watch proceedings, whilst the chosen recipient is presented with the award.
Timing is critical to the smooth running of the ceremony and we would therefore make the following recommendations:
Arrive at least 15 minutes before your registration time and wait in the presentation room for your group to be called to register.
Help keep delays to a minimum by adhering to the rule of 'one recipient per award'.
The chosen recipient should report promptly to the registration desk when your group number is called.
We will endeavour to present your award within 40 minutes of registration.
Registration and presentation time notifications will be sent via email by the middle of April for the Glasgow ceremony. If you have not received details by this date, please contact the RoSPA Awards administration team on +44 (0)121 248 2090/91.
The dress code for the day is smart business wear. No jeans or casual attire.
The official RoSPA photographers will be on-hand at the ceremony to record award presentations in full colour. Award winners will receive one digital copy free of charge. These will be emailed 10 working days after each ceremony. If required sooner, please order an express digital photo for £55 which can be sent via email the week following your presentation (RoSPA Members are eligible for a 10% discount).
Please note that only the official RoSPA photographers will be permitted to take photographs of the award presentations.
Successful health and safety management undoubtedly involves team effort. A great way to recognise the whole team's contribution is with a group photograph. The image will be sent to you within 12 hours, making it ideal for immediate use for PR purposes and in-house newsletters.
Pre-order a group photograph for £55 (RoSPA Members are eligible for a 10% discount).
On the day please visit the group photograph area once you have collected your award.
Orders placed on the day will require payment by debit/credit card.
