Warwick-based Prova PR was shortlisted for the Service to the Industry Award, supported by Goodridge, at the Motorsport Industry Association’s (MIA) renowned annual Business Excellence Awards 2015.
The prestigious event, which took place in Birmingham (Thursday 8 January) as part of the highly successful Autosport International Show, saw more than 500 guests from across the globe come together to recognise the achievements of the motorsport industry over the past 12 months.
Prova specialises in the automotive, motorsport and manufacturing industries, offering clients a wide range of services, including comprehensive PR campaigns, digital strategies, social media management, design and a wealth of expert advice from its dedicated team. Prova, which works with clients including Grainger & Worrall and KW Special Projects, was pipped to the post by Donington Park, which was recognised for its services to Formula E.
St John White, head of automotive at Prova, commented: “We feel privileged to once again be recognised for our service to the industry and placed among such a fantastic line up. On behalf of Prova, we congratulate all those involved in the awards evening, once again brilliantly hosted by the MIA. We would also like to give a special well done to Donington Park for its remarkable work toward Formula E.”
Chris Aylett, CEO of the MIA, commented: “It is an honour for us to be in the company of so many winners and finalists who have once more impressed our judges with their outstanding innovation and performance in 2014. The quality of entries was incredibly high and we’d like to congratulate everyone involved with the motorsport industry for their continued passion and commitment to excellence.”
The sell-out MIA Awards Dinner was attended by an audience of senior executives from the international motorsport business community.
