We hope you enjoyed your flight!

March 21st, and over 200 people reached for the skies in Manchester at the Concorde Centre to celebrate the very best internal communications and IC talent in our two mighty regions.

And what an experience it was!

The glittering 2019 IoIC High Flyer Central and North Awards took off and landed successfully.
Yet again, we continue to aim high, and we've heard from you that this year's top-flight awards, conducted under the wings of the design icon Concorde, were the best yet! No pressure for next year's awards then! A big thanks to the involvement of our members and volunteers from across the regions for making it happen.

This year, we gave out another record number of awards and partied until the early hours. In fact, some partied well beyond the flight crew curfew! And thanks to everyone who tweeted about the awards.

We’re incredibly grateful to all the people and organisations who, over the past nine months, have given up their time to help us create the awards and the event.

The regional awards are important for a number of reasons. Primarily, they recognise the important and outstanding work being done in internal communications across our regions. The awards also bring together in-house teams with consultants, agencies and events professionals for an evening of fun, laughter and networking.

Thanks to everyone who entered the awards and attended on the evening, it was great to see you all.

On behalf of everyone at the IoIC, thank you for your support, and keep reaching for the skies!

Many thanks

IoIC Director and Regions Director, Rich Baker
IoIC Director & North Director, Andy Holt
IoIC Central Region Director, Kirsty Bowen

Special thanks go to our top-flight crew of judges who flew through mountains of entries. Thanks to VMA for kindly volunteering their boardroom, and Brenda from IoIC for organising and flying in the suitcases of entry submissions.
