EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation, has beaten off stiff competition from across Europe to be crowned Best National Association at the European Association Awards 2018, held in Brussels on 23rd February.
The European Association Awards are the premier event for membership organisations across Europe. Judged by top industry experts, the awards recognise excellence and exceptional achievements by associations in serving and delivering value for their members.
Judges were impressed with EEF’s continued innovations, advancements and developments in the work it does to champion and support the UK manufacturing sector. EEF was also shortlisted for Best Use of Social Media.
The European Association Awards cover a breadth of industries and professionals from across Europe. They recognise excellence in how business organisations, trade associations, pressure and campaigning groups operate and serve their members.
Stephen Phipson CBE, CEO of EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation, said: “We are enormously proud to receive this prestigious award which reaffirms our pride in work that we do for our members. UK manufacturing is a vibrant and dynamic industry and central to the UK’s economic prosperity. Our teams across the UK work tirelessly to help our member businesses to compete, innovate and grow.”
