Prestigious Birmingham Made Me Awards Dinner proves to be a huge success…
In its third rendition, The Birmingham Made Me expo celebrated in style the very best of design and innovation in the Midlands. To start of the glorious night Harvey Nichols prosecco bottles were popped and the Birmingham Conservatoire were jazzing it up during the awards dinner reception. The dinner brought together over 240 guests who had the chance to enjoy exquisite Indian cuisine provided by East End whilst being treated to live entertainment from some of the cities finest musical, dance and acting talent from the Birmingham Ormiston Academy (BOA).
Dinner guests were blown away by the spectacular annual fashion show featuring some of the most talented aspiring designers from the City such as Rosie Billington, Naomi S Leotta, Dancing Dolls UK, who transformed the space around the dinner tables in Millennium Point into a vibrant catwalk.
Simon Topman, Chairman of Millennium Point and Professor Cliff Allan, Vice-Chancellor of Birmingham City University welcomed guests to the event and thanked all those involved.
“I am so pleased to see what I regard as the premier Midlands ‘Makers’ event back at Millennium Point.” – Simon Topman, Chairman of Millennium Point, CEO of ACME Whistles.
“I’d like to thank my colleagues and all the partners that have come together to make this possible. I hope our visitors enjoy our Design Expo. As we welcome the Design Council Summit, Leading Business By Design, more than 70 expert speakers and many visitors to our Graduate Degree Shows and Inspired Festival, we are proud to promote a vibrant and wide ranging programme with something for everyone to enjoy and appreciate.” – Professor Cliff Allan, Pro-Vice Chancellor, BCU.
