The directors from the British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI) have voted at a recent board meeting to issue a new tender for the BALI National Landscape Awards, therefore, starting with this year’s edition, the successful bidder will be awarded a one year contract with the possibility of a three year extension.
Horticulture Week has been an associate of BALI since 2010 and since then, the awards have been growing stronger and stronger turning into the most successful landscape awards in Europe. 2016 marked the 40th anniversary of the Awards, where the highest number of entries was recorded, while 2017 saw more than 1,000 BALI members, clients, and industry guests attending the ceremony at Grosvenor House in London.
BALI Chief Executive, Wayne Grills spoke about the partnership between the Horticulture Week and BALI and mentioned what a positive impact it had on the Awards: “They have helped us develop the Awards and deliver a hugely successful ceremony each December. As we move into the next phase of our strategic plan the BALI board believes it is time to review the Awards to ensure we are achieving best value whilst being open to new opportunities and ideas.”
