Following the decision to give additional focus to the wholesaler/supplier relationship at the Gold Medal awards at the FWD’s annual industry dinner, Landmark will sponsor this year’s manufacturer awards. Nisa-Today’s pioneered the policy at last year’s event.
Nestlé Rowntree is the major Gold Medal sponsor for 2005, and its sponsorship will cover the Gold Medals for wholesalers.
Alan Toft, director general of FWD, said: “The Gold Medals have become the awards people covet, since being launched in 1989. The medals for suppliers are now specifically supported by wholesalers, and the medals for wholesalers are specifically sponsored by a supplier, which is as it should be.”
The annual dinner will be on November 24 and is already attracting a stream of bookings.
