Reward and recognition for motion and control excellence

21 June 2011

The organising team behind the inaugural Motion & Control Industry Awards have announced that the ‘Call for Nominations’ will open in August. Brought to market by Touchwave Media, in association with DFA Media, the awards programme will acknowledge and celebrate business and professional excellence across the entire motion engineering and automation industry.

Covering the achievements of companies and their people, in the key areas of manufacture and supply including, innovation and achievement, energy saving, sales growth, customer care and employee motivation, there are nine main categories:-
 Technical Innovation of the Year
 Environmental/Energy Efficiency
 Project of the Year
 System Integrator of the Year
 Manufacturer of the Year
 Distributor of the Year
 Training Initiative of the Year
 Young Engineer of the Year
 Lifetime Achievement Award
The deadline for all entries and nominations is Friday 2nd December 2011, so, if you work for, or know of a company, individual, product or application that is worthy of recognition for outstanding achievements, the MCI Awards would like to hear from you.  The judging Panel will convene in late December to review all the entries and select the Finalists in each category. All Finalists will then be promoted within the trade press throughout January, February and March and via the dedicated awards website, readers will be invited to vote for which entry they believe should be the outright winner in each case.

Nomination is easy - all you have to do is visit the awards website and complete the online entry form which will be available from the 1st August.  The entry guidelines and nomination criteria are readily available on the website, or you can request this information by calling the organising team direct on 077927 20597.  Alternatively you can send an email to the team via

The culmination of this sector-wide awards programme is of course the Gala Awards Ceremony, which will take place on the evening of 17th April 2012 at the St Johns Hotel in Solihull. This prestigious event will correspond with the first day of the MACH, Drives & Controls, Air-tech, Plant & Asset Management and International Fluid Power Exhibitions, being held at the NEC from 17th – 19th April, and so is ideally timed to provide a magnificent night of reward and recognition for this important business sector.
