Taking place on the second evening of CanTech-The Grand Tour 2019, organised by Bell Publishing, the Global Can Supplier Awards will celebrate excellence within the can making industry. For the first time, suppliers in the industry will also be recognised, as well as the existing Can Awards, which will take place as normal, which is open to all can manufacturers globally.
This means that the Awards will offer everyone within the can making business a chance to shine, from the can makers through to the suppliers. The highlight of the evening will be the Supplier Innovation Awards, a prestigious accolade for the companies deemed to have the most innovative product/equipment within the industry.
There will be three supplier innovations presented: Bronze, Silver and Gold awards.
Events manager, Megan Freeman, comments on the new Supplier Awards: “We have now extended our events portfolio to include the Global Can Supplier Awards, an opportunity to honour those suppliers excelling within their chosen field.
“The Supplier Awards will complement our existing can awards to ensure it’s an evening not to be missed. It promises to be a who’s who of can making royalty!”
For CanTech International editor, Alex Fordham, rewarding the work of suppliers within the industry seems a good fit for the Grand Tour Event. He explains: “We have regularly received feedback from customers that suppliers should be rewarded for their endeavours too. With this in mind, we’re excited to recognise suppliers innovating within their chosen field.
“As the voting will be carried out online, it gives a chance for an overall industry view, rather than through an exclusive judging panel.
“With the launch of the Grand Tour, it’s a perfect fit, to bring a global perspective to a CanTech event.”
