Loadtec Engineered Systems will be sponsoring the ‘Personality of the Year' category at the inaugural Tank Storage Awards that will take place at the Floating Pavilion in Rotterdam on 29th March 2017.
The all new global Tank Storage Awards are designed to highlight those that excel in a range of different categories relating to terminal achievements, equipment innovations, ports and individual success.
Nominations are submitted by those working in the industry. However, the award winners will be chosen by a panel of impartial judges from across the sector and will be announced during a lavish gala dinner and ceremony in Rotterdam on the second night of StocExpo Europe.
“Loadtec is very excited about being the first sponsor for the awards. Through the many years I have worked in the industry, I have met many outstanding individuals and companies who have gone beyond their job scopes to ensure operators work in a safe environment. We are happy that finally, there is a way to recognise these individuals and companies who have made a real difference in the industry,” says Alec Keeler, Managing Director of Loadtec.
"We have been busy nominating individuals as well as companies in the industry that we feel have made a real impact! The reason we are sponsoring the ‘Personality of the Year Award' is because our industry has always been perceived by others as a rather dull and boring one. However, those of us who have been working in it for years know there are certainly enough colourful and interesting yet knowledgeable industry figures to make working in this industry still fun and interesting after all these years!” Alec explained further.
"The 'Personality of the Year Award’ is designed to recognise someone in the industry that stands out above the rest. We are delighted to have a company like Loadtec sponsoring this award and it’s a great choice for them," says Margaret Dunn, Publisher at Tank Storage Magazine, who are hosting the awards. "The Loadtec team are well-known throughout the industry, always smiling at tradeshows and usually have a funny anecdote to share!"
‘The Personality of the Year Award’ is the only one that will be voted on by the industry. Voting will open in January 2017 and everyone in the industry will be entitled to one vote each.
Nominations for this award are free of charge and will close in December 2016. Make sure you have your say and nominate that person who you feel deserves this industry accolade.
Winners will be revealed at a the gala dinner in Rotterdam on 29th March 2017. The evening consists of a drinks reception, 3-course dinner, live band, casino & all-inclusive drinks all evening – we look forward to seeing you there!
