Custom trophy design or off-the-shelf? How to choose?
Prior to this year, the BVCA (British Private Equity & Venture Capital Association) had always opted for an off-the-shelf trophy design, for both regional and national level, at its Management Team Awards. However, this year the decision was made to commission a unique design which was to endorse the stunning new graphics of the event. The result was a huge success for all involved.
Presented at the BVCA’s prestigious awards ceremony, held 25 June at 8 Northumberland Avenue, the exclusive national awards reinforced the prestige of the occasion. The eight awards feature the event’s new themed graphics, emblazoned on clear acrylic and framed in polished gold plated aluminium. Each is to be individually engraved by EFX with details of each winner, who were announced on the night. Special EFX also manufactured the 64 regional awards, which were A5 in size and made in acrylic.
For event organiser Dave Carpenter of Trimtwelve, the customised route was the right decision: “This was the best trophy design yet; the bespoke solution really paid dividends. Thank you EFX for designing and producing such wonderful awards. You met the brief to create something within the event theme and within the budget”.
