Since the NEPIC Annual Industry awards started 15 years ago, a phenomenal total prize fund of £283,000 has been donated. Seventy-eight local schools have received £174,000 in support of STEM related projects, and the region’s young stars have received £103,000 between them. A further £6,000 has been donated in support of export mentoring.
Trade association meetings have, in the past, been used as a forum for the establishment of cartels and they are therefore the subject of scrutiny by the UK Competition and Markets Authority.
For the purposes of remaining compliant with competition law, members should not discuss commercially sensitive strategic information (including but not limited to, details of proposed or actual pricing, information about target or key customers or expansion plans) in or around NEPIC meetings, including at unofficial get-togethers or over coffee/lunch.<< Back to Awards Home Page
