Datateam Publishing would like to convey their thanks to everyone involved in this year’s awards ceremony, all of whom helped to create an evening, of fun, networking and true celebration. Feedback to date has been truly exceptional and we now hope that this year’s attendees will ‘spread the word’ about the awards, helping to ensure that the 2007 event will be an even greater success!
The organisers would also like to thank all of those who attended the event, and who donated generously towards the BPMA’s chosen charity – WaterAid. Just over £4,300.00 was raised through the Grand Charity Raffle and auction, so thank you again to all the contributors of prizes.
