Another successful awards and gala dinner evening passed at The Vox, Birmingham on March 16th. With over 530 attendees to the spectacular event, the evening passed without a hitch.  

A string quartet delighted the crowds on the opening of the event with Andy Young, EFIA Chairman, commenting on the record number of entries that had been secured this year, as well as the outstanding quality level which was commented on by the judges.

Rob Hawkins from Diamond Plus EFIA Partner, Sun Chemical, responded to the chairman commenting on his excitment at the level of innovation in the industry and how much work the EFIA board had completed in delivering the new Academy e-learning solution in 2016.

Amcor, Cumbria, were overall winners of the event winning Best In Show with their McCain's Gastro Chips flexible pack. Sandon Global, Blybac, F&K, Sun Chemical, SGS and 3M were all involved in the team that delivered the outstanding design and print.  Congratulations to everyone!

Copies of all the speeches, awards and photographs of the winning entries will be available in the EFIA Awards brochure due out soon. In the interim, please visit to see pictures of the awards and photos from the evening.

Thank you to all our members, suppliers, sponsors and partners for making the evening such a memorable event!
