The Public Affairs Awards 2017 is a prestigious black tie event which will take place on Thursday 14th December. Once again the awards will be held in the Ballroom of the Park Plaza, Riverbank, and they will be hosted by an eminent political journalist.
This year’s awards follow on from the 2016, 2015 and the 2014 Awards, all three of which sold out. So please book your tickets – or reserve your tables – early.
The political landscape has changed significantly since Article 50 was triggered and the snap General Election in June.
As always we have several award categories this year and an enhanced judging panel. So if you are serious about public affairs, this is The awards to enter and The event to attend.
About the Awards
The Public Relations Communications Association, Government Knowledge,and Zetter’s Political Services have once again joined forces to host The Public Affairs Awards. Between us, we cover the whole industry across the entire United Kingdom. We also believe that we have the pedigree and the passion for showcasing all that is best in this vital and vibrant industry.
We are convinced that lobbying is not just legitimate but also laudable. We also believe that the public affairs industry – ethically and efficiently run – is a force for good in any established liberal democracy. Lobbyists ensure that every side of every argument is examined and tested. The lobbying industry also goes some way towards redressing the balance between the government – with the full resources of the civil service at their disposal – and the opposition parties.
Last year was a crucial year in UK politics with the shock Brexit vote and the snap General Election in June which left Conservatives without a majority in Parliament. The upcoming Brexit negotiations will make this another stimulating and attention-grabbing year for UK politics.
