The 1st English NBL Awards Midlands 2020 celebrate the stars of the industry

Following the success of The Scottish NBL Awards 2019, Creative Oceanic is delighted to launch The inaugural English NBL Awards Midlands 2020.

The awards aim to acknowledge and celebrate the best professionals and businesses in Midlands that take care of the public’s nails, brows and lashes needs.

The elegant ceremony will take place on Sunday February 16 at The Holiday Inn Birmingham Airport.

 The awards seek to recognise everyone that works hard to leave the region glowing; from nail technicians and lash specialists to brow bars, beauty teams and academies among others.

They also aim to acknowledge the efforts and dedication of the very best professionals that enhance our features and give that glow from within by ensuring their customers always receive high-quality services and trending treatments, meeting every client’s expectations.

Charlene Young, Campaign Manager of The English NBL Awards 2020 said:“The inaugural English NBL Awards 2020 are organised by Creative Oceanic but voted for by the public.

“All finalists should feel honoured as it is their clients that went behind the nomination process and put them forward to receive the recognition they deserve.

“The awards aim to acknowledge everyone in the sector that provides impeccable services, inspiring and innovative treatments that really work.

“The beauty industry plays a vital role in the region’s economy and these awards aim to provide a platform to thank those who have dedicated their whole career in this field, letting them know that their amazing work doesn’t go un-noticed.

“We wish all finalists the best of luck and we can’t wait to welcome our guests and deliver a memorable event.”
