This exclusive annual black-tie event took place at 8 Northumberland Avenue, London on Thursday 3rd October 2019 and included a welcome drinks reception and canapés, a stunning 3-course meal including wine and beer and a top class celebrity award host and entertainer. The EIC National Awards recognise the work done by EIC members to grow and flourish both at home and abroad. Award entries are welcome from all EIC member companies. The EIC is also once again proud to partner with Robert Gordon University (RGU), Aberdeen to present the EIC/RGU Rising Star MBA Award, an initiative designed to develop leaders of tomorrow in the oil & gas sector. The EIC award categories are based on the eight growth strategies explored in the EIC's annual 'Survive & Thrive' report which is now entering its third year. Winning companies have demonstrated how they have successfully adapted and implemented one or more of these strategies to remain competitive and grow in the current challenging economic climate.
