MIM launches new Ambassador award

Uncategorized Made in the Midlands is widely recognised as the leading industry support group in the region, representing more than 400 of the Midlands’ top manufacturing businesses.

It didn’t reach this position by accident. Without the loyal support of its members, who have provided us with a wealth of opportunities down the years, the organisation would not have reached the heights it has.

Now, to help grow the group further - and recognise the outstanding contribution being made by our dedicated advocates - we are honouring their efforts with the launch of a new membership category, that of Ambassador.

During a special ceremony on June 20 - the eve of the MIM annual exhibition - at the Ricoh Arena we will be honouring these important advocates by inviting them to become our inaugural MIM Ambassadors.

Ambassadors will be nominated by other MIM members or by Made in the Midlands itself; the title recognises a person who has consistently advocated the benefits of membership and gone above and beyond in their efforts to grow the MIM network.

They will also receive recognition for helping to promote the manufacturing industry within their respective communities and networks.

The criteria for becoming a MIM Ambassador:

  • Refer two new members each year

  • Be a MIM member for at least two years

  • Attend and support Made in the Midlands events

  • Be willing to speak at our events and pass on the benefits of their knowledge to other members

In return, Made in the Midlands will invite Ambassadors to special VIP events, boost their thought leadership credentials by creating bespoke opportunities to speak to new members and in doing so, singling them out as the go-to person in their group.

The exclusive group will also receive an award recognising their contribution and this will be presented to recipients at our VIP drinks event and awards ceremony on June 20. The reception, which takes place between 6-8pm, will be will be held in the Jaguar Lounge of the Ricoh Arena.

Members exhibiting and attending this event are advised to either book the Hilton DoubleTree Hotel, which is based within the Ricoh Arena, or a nearby venue in order to make the most of this exclusive networking event.

Is there someone you believe deserves recognition this year? You can nominate someone by emailing us their contact details, together with 50 words explaining why they should be conferred MIM Ambassador status.
