The LADAs will, once again, take place at Mercedes-Benz World, Brooklands, Surrey, on Thursday 2 November 2017.

The Lifetime contribution award, being the pinnacle of achievement, will recognise the dedication, commitment and support given to our sector over a period of at least 30 years.

The final selection will take place prior to the presentation ceremony. All finalists will be invited to the awards evening where the winners will be announced and presented with their accolade and certificate.

About the awards

The LADAs is the original industry award event that recognise exceptional individuals, companies and products in the laundry and drycleaning industry.

The awards first launched in 2015 after establishing a gap in the market to identify and celebrate the best in the industry.

Now in its third year, the event has grown to become a prestigious evening, set in exceptional surroundings, to truly recognise those in the industry that make a difference.

Last years’ black tie event was attended by over 140 people and this years is set to be even bigger.

Themed as ‘dining with the cars’, the evening will start with a champagne reception. Guests mingle amongst beautiful cars before sitting down to an exceptional three-course meal with entertainment and music throughout the evening. There’ll also be the chance to top the leaderboard in racing car simulators – Mercedes of course!

The event ends with the award ceremony where the finalists and winners are congratulated and applauded by their industry peers and colleagues.

It’s a first-class event that really is worth saving the date for! Table bookings will be released later in the year. We look forward to seeing you there.

These awards aim to celebrate skills, recognise hard work, identify role models and either give encouragement for future careers, or recognise past contributions for companies and individuals in the professional textile care industry.

All nominees are asked to show how they meet the criteria for each award through a simple series of questions.

The first awards ceremony took place 22 April, 2015, at The Royal Berkshire Conference Centre, Reading, Berkshire.

LADA awards Golf day

An industry golf day was introduced in 2016 at the tree-lined golf course at Silvermere. This friendly competition offers a challenging introduction to the awards. Perhaps not the longest course, but it will be a true test for the golfers. The first six holes are sure to get the pulse racing with tight fairways, challenging approaches and great views. 

The most accessible golf centre in the South East. Set amongst some of Surrey’s finest countryside the par-71 course winds through dense woodland, open parkland and finishes with a couple of tricky shots across the stunning Silvermere Lake. 

Prizes will be awarded for various challenges.

To book your place and come and join in the fun (you don’t have to be seasoned golfer), call us on 0118 901 4471 or mail:
