With thanks to our sponsors for the evening. 




Announcing the winners of the Chemicals Northwest 2024 Awards

Awards dinner - 21st March - Hilton Manchester Deansgate


Feedback we received from the awards on the 21st March 2024 was phonomenal. We were delighted to be back at the Hilton Manchester Deansgate for the second year on the run. Entries remained of the very highest quality, showcasing the amazing achievements of companies operating in the sector and our young talent entrants, the rising stars of the future.  The vibrant atmosphere in the room was testament to a sector that continues to deliver across the board despite the challenges faced this year and beforehand.


The 21st March Awards Dinner brought together nearly 300 guests from the North West and surrounding areas. Eleven Awards were presented during the evening. All shortlisted entrants should be very proud of the contribution made to our sector and the success stories generated from the teams.  Steve Elliott, CEO of the Chemical Industries Association welcomed guests on behalf of Chemicals Northwest wishing everyone success in the year ahead.


A full roundup of the winners will be featured in the upcoming edition of Elements which is due out online next week.
