On Friday 29th November, Bluestones Group celebrated another successful, record-breaking year at the annual BIG Awards evening in Manchester.

Every year brands from across the Group, as well as the central support services, come together for an evening of food, drink, entertainment and recognising achievements, and this year was no different with the Group taking over the Imperial War Museum North in Salford Quays.

At this year’s BIG Awards evening, over 20 winners were recognised for their achievements during 2019, which included top-performing consultants and brands, and the people who embody the Group values of Passion, Accountability, Collaboration and Enjoyment. Every year, all award winners are treated to an award winners’ trip and this year we revealed that our winners will be jetting off to the Entertainment Capital of the World, Las Vegas, in 2020. Previous trips have seen winners travel to locations across the world including Dubai, Ibiza and New York.

While the evening focuses on people’s achievements, it is also an opportunity for colleagues across the group to reconnect and celebrate together. This year, all attendees were treated to welcome drinks and canapes underneath the museum’s harrier jet, a delicious three-course meal, entertainment from the band The Distance and Six15 DJ Will Maden Wilkinson and possibly best-appreciated, an all-inclusive bar.

Planning for 2020’s BIG AWARDS evening is already well underway….. but in the meantime take a look at a selection of photos from the event below.
