Need An Award Website For Your Awards Event?

13th August 2019

We can help! We’re really pleased to offer new stunning, contemporary awards websites designed and built specifically for awards evenings and similar events. We have the intrinsic functionality in place to build upon to create glittering, contemporary events and awards websites that are fully bespoke to promote your exclusive event. Our awards websites are an exciting new addition to our portfolio of specialist websites.

Why do I need a website for awards events?

Think of all the stages involved in planning an awards event…. All the following points need planning and finalising before the big day:

  • Themes & branding for the event
  • Dates and times
  • Timeline of tasks & completion dates
  • Promotion and marketing of the event
  • Budgets
  • Hosts
  • Lighting, music & production criteria
  • Rehearsals
  • Speeches
  • Scripts
  • Floor plans and seating arrangements
  • Photographer
  • Sponsors
  • Judges
  • Programme
  • Awards details – names and categories
  • Guests
  • Venue
  • Winners and nominees

It’s an extremely long list!
However, managing your event will be significantly easier by using a fully functional awards website.

What do our awards websites feature?

The website will act as a central hub for everyone involved in the awards event. The website will:

  • Promote the details of the event: dates, venue, times, award categories, judges, sponsors and so on. Rather than having to forward these details on to all stakeholders, you can simply send them a link to the website.
  • Explain the procedure for entering the awards, providing a secure portal for people to enter and upload any associated documents. There is no need for a member of staff to be receiving and filing rewards entries and details, it is all done automatically in the website.
  • Introduce the judges, describe the judging process and allow judges to go into the portal and download all entries and supporting documents. No need for anyone to send out information to judges and oversee the judging process. They can access everything and complete the task themselves.
  • Act as a live floor/seating plan, handling all ticket, table and seat bookings, allowing people to view the floor and table plans, select their chosen seats and pay.
  • Allow businesses to view all the information about, and benefits of, sponsoring the event. Enables sponsors to sign up as sponsors and pay online.

Link directly to your CRM system, ensuring that any actions taken by contacts is recorded in your CRM for all departments to access.
