National recognition for Scottish Dental Show
2015 event Highly Commended at London awards ceremony
The 2015 Scottish Dental Show has picked up a Highly Commended prize at a national awards ceremony celebrating the best events in the UK publishing industry.
The event was recognised in the Team of the Year category at the PPA Connect Awards, which were held in London on 7 December.
Having previously been named as Brand Extension of the Year at the PPA’s Scottish Magazine Awards in 2012 and 2013, this latest award is the first time the show has received UK-wide recognition.
Out of 11 categories awarded at the ceremony, only four Highly Commended awards were handed out along with the winners.
Bruce Oxley, editor of Scottish Dental magazine and one of the organisers of the Scottish Dental Show, said: “Just being shortlisted at a national awards ceremony is a great achievement but to be Highly Commended really is the icing on the cake.
“The team have worked hard to get this show to where it is today and we are all extremely proud of its success. Planning for the 2016 show is already well under way and hopefully we can go one better and win the main prize next year.”
