Event overview

Organiser: Environment Analyst / Brownfield Briefing

WINNERS of the 2019 Brownfield Briefing Awards can be viewed here.


This will be the 15th year for the Brownfield Briefing Awards, which will once again recognise all that is best practice in the remediation sector. With the economic, social, legal and environmental challenges that the industry has faced during the last few years, we believe we can look forward to some of the most innovative entries to date. These highly regarded awards will be extensively promoted across the industry and trade press to recognise the hard work and creative solutions being applied to the projects by entrants. 

The Awards Gala Dinner, which takes place in London on 19 September, provides the brownfield community with a chance to celebrate excellence, undertake some relaxed networking with peers, enjoy some quality entertainment and have a great night out. You will begin the evening with a champagne reception and mingle with industry peers before the dinner and ceremony get underway. Then enjoy a delicious three-course meal with wine and celebrate the achievements of your peers, or maybe you’ll be picking up an award yourself! Then continue networking in the hotel bar once the ceremony has finished. So whether you want to network with peers, invite your clients, or reward your team for a year of hard work, the Brownfield Briefing Awards is an event not to be missed.

We are pleased to announce that this year's guest speaker is Lord Matthew Taylor.

Dress code:
