An occasion for celebration
All being well, with Covid restrictions behind us and a broad and deep list of Finalists, the plan is to host a physical dinner and ceremony, with a Reception beginning at 18.45 hrs and dinner served from 19.45 hrs, followed by the Awards ceremony at around 21.45 hrs. We are aiming to hold the dinner and ceremony in Brussels on October 25 or 26, where the hydrogen community will be well-represented while the Hydrogen Europe flagship event is on. Whether there is a physical event or an online presentation of the Awards, however, will be dictated by international engagement and potential disruption of plans owing to Covid-19 or other international events. This will be reviewed as entries are received and a decision made by July 15.
For the 2022 Awards and beyond, the full menu for an event will be published on this page together with any vegetarian alternatives as soon as they are agreed. Wines will be served with lunch, with mineral waters. Beers and soft drinks may also be available.
Everyone attending will be asked if they have any special dietary requirements in advance of the event so that Chef can cater for all.
The Awards will be presented after dinner during a ceremony hosted by a professional presenter that is expected to last no more than 60-70 minutes. Both category Winners and High Commendation recipients will go on stage to receive their awards. Photographs of each recipient will be taken and made available online on the morning following the Awards, if not sooner. Video sequences should also be available.
Please use the ATTEND AWARDS button in the right-hand column to reserve your places at the Awards in future. The button will be visible and active no later than July 1.
Even if Covid-19 restrictions or other international disruption prevent a live physical event, contingency plans will be in place for a virtual awards ceremony streamed online. Trophies will be sent out to recipients on the day of the Awards and there will still be a Winners supplement available online to download as a PDF file. The Winners supplement will also be available on the night in print form, as a memento of the occasion, and it will be destributed to the full circulation of H2 View with the next issue after the Awards.
