The Glasgow Awards 2019 celebrate local success

The Glasgow Awards 2019 are back once again for a memorable celebration of the people and organisations that make up the city we all love.

The full list with finalists has been complied and the winners will be announced in a star studded night that will take place on Monday June 17, at The Marriott Hotel in Glasgow. The event aims to showcase key figures and institutions that enhance the city’s reputation nationally and internationally.

Glasgow is well known for its friendly people, whose creative thinking and innovative spirit bring them at the forefront of the business field they operate within. The city’s lively atmosphere makes Glasgow a top destination for visitors who seek to spend some time relaxing by exploring the city’s rich heritage.

Being the biggest city in Scotland, Glasgow attracts some of the most famous festivals and shows that keep the city alive all year round. These awards will recognise everyone that make Glasgow so special, from restaurants that serve delicious and unique dishes, bars and clubs that ensure unforgettable nights, museums, shopping centres as well as charities and community initiatives that contribute to making our future brighter.

Marisa Ruettimann, Campaign Executive of The Glasgow Awards 2019, said: “The Glasgow Awards are now in their fifth year and celebrate the outstanding achievements of inspiring individuals that work hard to develop the cultural, social and economic life of Glasgow.

“There are some talented individuals whose valuable work often remains un-known to the public. We hope that these awards will provide a platform to thank everyone for their contributions and dedication to improving the quality of life in Glasgow and making it an exciting place to call home.

“We can’t wait to welcome all finalists and guests at the fifth Glasgow Awards 2019 and deliver an enjoyable event.

“We would like to wish all finalists the best of luck.”

In addition, The Glasgow Awards 2019 will support Glasgow’s Golden Generation, a charity that aims to improve the quality of life of older adults in Glasgow through a variety of support services, ranging from befriending to benefits advice.
