EVAN DAVIS, the BBC's enthusiastic and knowledgeable economics editor, will join the NCE/ACE Consultants of the Year Awards 2004 as guest speaker at a special lunch to be held at Claridges Hotel in Mayfair, London, on 26 March.
Davis will be on hand to provide the audience of top industry bosses, clients and politicians with a unique analysis of the current economic climate and the challenges facing construction over the next few years As economics editor for the BBC since October 2001, Davis regularly appears with incisive and entertaining economic reports on the Ten O'clock News. He has won many awards for his work, most recently the 2002 Harold Wincott Award for Business Broadcaster of the Year.
This year, for the first time, NCE has linked up with the Association of Consulting Engineers to recognise and celebrate the profession's achievements.
Awards for both corporate and individual success will be presented, including:
Major consulting firm, sponsored by Barclays.
Medium sized consulting firm, sponsored by Griffiths & Armour.
International consulting firm, sponsored by BST/Eagle Technology.
Young consulting engineer, sponsored by Hays Montrose.
Outstanding contribution, sponsored by Berrymans Lace Mawer.
Final judging took place last week to decide the Young Consulting Engineer and Outstanding Contribution Awards. Finalists for the remaining three company categories will be decided over the next week.
Shortlisted contenders in each category will be invited to the lunch and the winners announced on the day. All will be highlighted and celebrated in a special section of the 2004 NCE Consultants File due out on 1 April.
