LCV2014 to host dinner and awards ceremony with the LowCVP

Cenex – the Centre of Excellence for low carbon and fuel cell technologies - has announced it will be hosting an LCV2014 networking dinner with the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership (LowCVP) at this year’s LCV2014. 

The dinner will be held on Wednesday, September 10, 2014, at Jury’s Inn, Milton Keynes. The central feature of this year’s dinner will be the LowCVP Low Carbon Champions Awards. 

The LowCVP Low Carbon Champions Awards are a well-established event on the LCV industry calendar.

They celebrate the achievements of organisations and individuals who have made the greatest contribution to accelerating the shift to low carbon vehicles and fuels over the preceding year.

The awards are accredited by the RSA which enables the winners to be considered for entry to the highly prestigious European Business and the Environment (EBAE) Awards.

Full details about how to enter for the Awards and about category sponsorship opportunities will be published on the LowCVP website in due course.

All LCV2014 Delegates and Exhibitors are invited to the LCV2014 dinner, which will start at 6.30pm and include a drinks reception, three-course meal, keynote speaker and awards ceremony. 

Tickets cost £80 and will be available from Thursday, May 1. There are a variety of purchasing options available including full tables, half tables and individual tickets.

Robert Evans, CEO of Cenex, said: “We are extremely excited about the addition of an event dinner at LCV2014 and we are pleased that LowCVP has partnered with us to run their Low Carbon Vehicle Champion Awards. 

“The LCV event has become a central meeting point for all key stakeholders within the industry and the dinner will provide an ideal opportunity for the community to come together to discuss the issues of the day.

“The awards help recognise achievements, best practice and successes within the sector and hosting the Awards at the LCV 2014 dinner has obvious synergies.  This collaboration is an example of the close working relationship between Cenex and the LowCVP that dates back to the formation of Cenex in 2005.”

Andy Eastlake, the LowCVP’s managing director, said: “We are delighted to be working with Cenex on this exciting new event.

“I think it really will be the ‘can’t miss’ social and networking event of the year for all those involved in the rapidly growing low carbon vehicles and fuels industries.”
