laundry drycleaning awards stage 2017

Not long to go until the winners of the LADAs 2018 are announced at the award ceremony on 1 November at the stunning Mercedes-Benz World in Surrey. 

The Laundry & Drycleaning Awards (the LADAs) is the original industry award event that recognises exceptional individuals, companies and products in the laundry and drycleaning industry. These awards aim to celebrate skills and innovations, 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. And what an exceptional and talented bunch there is in the industry. 

It meant the judges had some tough decisions to make. There’s been a record level of entries this year. 100 per cent more than last year to be exact. With particularly high competition in the Drycleaner/Wetcleaner of the Year, Machinery Distributor of the Year, the Green Impact award and the Most Innovative award categories. Organiser Mark Gleed says: “We can’t believe how the industry has taken to these awards, each year they just get better and better. The word is filtering out on what a great occasion and venue the gala awards ceremony is. “This truly is becoming the must attend event on the industry calendar. 

The LADAs, with the help of the fantastic support of our sponsors, have now become synonymous with the laundry, drycleaning and textile care industry.” While the judges face the tricky task of picking the winners, it’s now time to make sure you’ve booked your place at the event. 

Last years’ black-tie event was attended by 245 people and this year it’s set to be even bigger and better. And what a venue it is! Mercedes-Benz World is a state-of-the-art building, located on the famous and historic Brooklands Racing Circuit in Weybridge, Surrey. 

Guests will get up close to some legendary Mercedes-Benz vehicles, beloved classics and Mercedes-Benz Formula 1 cars. It’s an event not to be missed! 

This gala evening will see guests arriving on the red carpet, being served champagne and a fabulous four-course meal surrounded by fascinating classic, vintage and modern vehicles. Table bookings are now open. It’s just £85 + vat/person or £800 + vat table of 10. To book your place simply contact MEG Events on 0118 901 4471. We look forward to seeing you there!
