The IQPC hold their Annual Process Excellence Summit at The Queen Elizabeth II Centre (QEIICC) which promotes excellence in senior management training, focusing particularly on operational process, change and quality improvement management training.
The Summit was held from 15th to 18th April 2008 at QEII Centre. Rooms used included the Fleming and Whittle combined, the Henry Moore for masterclasses and workshops, St James’ Suite and the Crown, Shelley and Sovereign rooms.
After the conference sessions, QEII Centre re-set the room for banqueting, pin-spotting each table for atmosphere, adding in a four-piece jazz band with audio monitors and microphones for each band member and moving lighting to create excitement during the award presentations (Miniscan HPEs).
There were rolling presentations playing on a specially constructed large screen during the champagne reception which was followed by 10 Process Excellence Awards. The event was also video recorded to DVD.
“Every year we aim to bring more wow factor to the Awards Ceremony and in 2008 we managed to once again. The impression as you walk into the Awards Hall is quite startling after it has been transformed from business conference set up into a glamorous banqueting scene!
“Our event attendees constantly tell us how important it is to recognise the existing leaders in their field and salute those emerging with pioneering new ideas. The balance of business networking and luxurious indulgence make the Annual Awards Ceremony the ideal opportunity to do this”
Vanessa Lovatt, Divisional Director, IQPC
