BCO National Awards Dinner 2009

http://www.bco.org.uk/uploaded/Regional_map_with_National_.jpgThis year the National Awards Dinner has evolved. Regional Awards have already been announced locally and the winners will now compete for the prestigious National Awards, with one receiving the ultimate accolade of ‘Best of the Best’.

In recent years, the Awards Dinner has sold out faster than any other BCO event and with the new format it promises to be a hugely informative and enjoyable occasion.
