BIFA director general Peter Quantrill, said: “As in every year, these entrants show the strong interest in the Awards that have come to represent the best of British forwarding. I applaud the effort put into the entries that were, as ever, of the highest quality. Even if you didn’t enter, the Awards Luncheon in January is much more than a lunch – I always view it as a chance to put aside competitive pressures and meet with other forwarders to network, make friends and catch up with BIFA and its staff and other industry figures.”
Quantrill added: “We are delighted that Christine Hamilton has accepted to be the host at the BIFA Awards ceremony. Not only has she gained high visibility by appearing regularly on TV and radio, on both entertainment and news/current affairs programmes, but her development of a successful career as a chat show host, and after dinner speaker is unquestionable.”
The award winners will be announced at the BIFA Annual Lunch and Awards Ceremony to be held at The Brewery, Chiswell Street, London EC1 on Thursday 19th January 2012. Tickets are available from the BIFA Awards web pages at
