Building on the great success of last year’s EuroPAwards and of the well-established UK Public Affairs Awards we are delighted to announce that the second EuroPAwards will once again take place on the 22nd November 2017. The venue will be the prestigious Le Plaza Hotel, Brussels.

About our host

Our host this year is Ryan Heath, Senior EU Correspondent at Politico, our media partner.

Ryan began writing for national newspapers in his native Australia in 1999, and is the author of two books.

After working as a speechwriter for the British civil service, he joined the European Commission working for President Jose Manuel Barroso and Vice President Neelie Kroes as a spokesperson. Ryan is regular policy commentator on outlets such as BBC, CNN, MSNBC, and Deutsche Welle. He has reported from major events such as the World Economic Forum in Davos, G7 summits and US political conventions.

About the Awards

The EU Public Affairs Awards are a joint venture between Government Knowledge, Public Relations Communications Association and Zetter’s Political Services. For the European Public Awards – or EuroPAwards – we are very pleased to announce the additional support of the International Communications Consultancy Organisation (ICCO), The European Centre for Public Affairs (ECPA), Society of European Affairs Professionals (SEAP) and The European Public Affairs Consultancies’ Association (EPACA). This greatly increases the international reach of the awards, whilst rooting them firmly in Brussels. PubAffairs is proud to be a Supporter of the EuroPAwards.​

The Brussels lobbying scene continues to be extremely vibrant. The role which lobbyists play in developing robust policy and ensuring that legislation is as good as it can be is recognised by all of the institutions of the European Union. The ethical standards upheld by the industry are underpinned not just by the relevant trade bodies (with their codes of conduct) but also by the EU Transparency Register.

So this is your opportunity to participate and to share in the industry’s success. Whether you wish to volunteer to be a judge, to enter an award, or simply to attend on the night, we welcome your contribution. Whether you are in-house or consultancy based, commercial or voluntary sector, trade body, law firm, diplomatic body or governmental organisation, the EuroPAwards are very much for you.

We have made entering both simple and affordable, and we will ensure that the judging process is both efficient and fair. So please, if you are proud of the work that you do, and you would like to showcase at least one aspect of it, enter the EuroPAwards.
