A host of big-name companies are backing the third annual dinner and awards of Future Faces, the young professionals’ arm of Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce.
Around 400 delegates are expected to attend the ceremony at Edgbaston Stadium on Friday 15 September.
Office Angels, UK Power Reserve and Aston University are all on board as general sponsors for the black-tie event.
Award sponsorships have already been snapped up by RSM (Future Face of Entrepreneurship), Millennium Point (Future Face of Technology and Innovation) and Curium Solutions Ltd (Future Face of Legal).
Curium is also the decorations sponsor, with Edgbaston stadium serving as pre-drinks sponsor and Park Regis Birmingham sponsoring the after party.
Curium managing director Andy Dawson said: "The legal market is undergoing rapid change with digital, price pressures and new market entrants each posing a threat to the traditional model.
"We are excited to sponsor the Future Face of Legal award this year and celebrate the talented professionals helping to take the legal market forward. We wish all the candidates the best of luck."
Paul Hebron, head of Postgraduate Marketing, Aston University, said: “Aston Business School is delighted to support the Future Faces awards which recognise excellence in business and the hard work and ambition of some of the city’s most talented professionals.”
Common Purpose – sponsor of the main Future Face of Greater Birmingham award – is providing the winner with a place on their Navigator Programme for Emerging Leaders, worth £3,500 plus VAT.
Sponsorships opportunities are still available for the Finance, Industry, Sales and Marketing and Arts and Culture awards categories.
Future Faces manager Anna Assinder said: “We’re delighted to have attracted so many big-name companies to support this year’s Future Faces awards.
“The calibre of sponsors reflects the success and growth of Future Faces and the importance businesses are placing on supporting the region’s young professionals.
“With around 400 people expected to attend the event – including a number of high-profile business leaders and influencers – our sponsors will receive great exposure.”
Mark Taylor, office managing partner at RSM, Birmingham, said: “RSM is delighted to sponsor the Future Face of Entrepreneurship award this year.
“Entrepreneurs play a vital role in the local economy, helping to create jobs and prosperity by driving innovation and challenging the status quo.
“Through our support of this award we aim to celebrate the outstanding entrepreneurial talent we have in the West Midlands and to identify the region’s future leaders. We wish all of the candidates the very best of luck.”
