We’re not just telling a story; we’re inviting you into the heart of an industry celebration where excellence meets recognition.
The event, described as ‘monumental’ by Gerry Dunphy, Event Director of Informa Group, was a convergence of over a thousand professionals celebrating the sector’s best. ZAM FM, alongside First Response Group, proudly headlined the event, setting the stage for an unforgettable night. The event was hosted by Rob Beckett, a renowned comedian and podcast host, who brought a unique blend of humor and charisma to the ceremony.
Our involvement as headline sponsors was not just a title; it was our commitment to excellence and innovation in the industry.
