For immediate release
The BCI has added to its growing repertoire of BCI Regional Awards with the addition of Australasia and Europe, which now join the Middle East, India, Asia and North America, taking the total number of BCI Regional Awards to a proud six.
All winners of the Regional Awards will automatically be entered into the BCI Global Awards that take place on 6th November 2013 in London as an integral part of the highly-acclaimed BCM World Conference and Exhibition.
The BCI Regional Awards represent a key vehicle in raising the profile of both the Business Continuity (BC) discipline as well as showcasing the impressive achievements and multi-talents of BC professionals and organizations working in these regions. They serve to put the spotlight on this growing industry and to generate worldwide interest in the BC discipline.
“The value of the BCI Awards is to recognise and reward excellence of individuals, teams and organisations. Undoubtedly this good news story is a benefit to the whole industry worldwide. It attracts positive media attention. It encourages healthy competition for nominations. It is a celebration for all to enjoy the reflected glory not just from the award winners but from a nation or a region. It brings us together as an Institute no matter who we are, or where we are from so that we can share in the limelight of the BCI Awards.”
