GE Awards shortlist announced

With entries to the 2014 GE Awards at an all-time high in terms of numbers and quality, the judging panels have had a difficult time selecting which submissions to take through to the shortlist.

“It is fantastic to see that so many companies working in the industry are proud of what they have achieved in the last 12 months and the volume of entries reflects the recovery that the sector has seen,” commented one of the judges.

The winners of the awards will beannounced on 14 May at a lunctime ceremony at the Grosvenor HouseHotel in London. For more details, go to www.geawards.com
