For 2019, the Utilities & Telecoms (U&T) Awards will be held as part of the first Collections & Vulnerability Summit Annual Dinner.

 

The annual dinner, which follows the Collections & Vulnerability Summit, marks the culmination of our unique, major gathering of credit and collections professionals, working across the financial services, energy, water, telecoms and public sectors.

 

Now in its ninth year, the Utilities & Telecoms Awards once again presents an opportunity to champion the outstanding achievements of organisations, teams and individuals working for energy, water or telecoms providers.

 

New for 2019

 

This year, the U&T Awards will be held alongside the Collections & Customer Service (CCS) Awards, at the annual dinner.

 

On the night, awards will be handed out to:

  • Finalists operating in the utilities and telecoms sectors, who entered the U&T Awards; and
  • Finalists working in financial services or the public sector, who entered the CCS Awards

By uniting both awards programmes, Credit Strategy will bring together the widest possible group of credit and collections professionals, across multiple sectors, to showcase those independently judged as best-in-class.

 

Book now

 

Both awards programmes are independently judged. The annual black-tie dinner and ceremony will be held at The Midland Hotel, Manchester, providing a forum for unparalleled networking opportunities.

Free entry deadline - 12 July 2019
