The Business Concept is delighted to open submissions for the Aviation & Aerospace Awards, celebrating the continued efforts of aviation firms, manufacturers and service providers across the industry!

About the Aviation and Aerospace Awards

The Business Concept is proud to host the Aviation and Aerospace Awards 2023 for their 4th consecutive year! These awards aim to commend only the most deserving businesses based within either sector, with a particular emphasis being placed on outstanding commitment to service. From private air charters to helicopter tours, the Aviation and Aerospace Awards 2023 encompasses all areas of both sectors!

Whilst passenger traffic plummeted dramatically throughout 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this brought forward the opportunity to reflect and place a sharp focus on areas of improvement that could be made to the industry to drive innovation forward. One key focus is health and safety, with cleaning processes regimented and mandated throughout. There is also a renewed push for touchless experiences, such as automated check-ins and digitised bag-tracking.

Involvement in The Business Concept’s Aviation and Aerospace Awards 2023 will do wonders to reinforce you or your business’s status as industry leaders, as well as informing potential clients, customers, and colleagues that you are providing an award-winning service. Our circulation across our website and various social media platforms are always eager to hear of award-winning businesses and their chosen strategies!

The awards are open to all businesses and individuals operating within the sector and are completely free to enter. We also encourage people to submit a nomination for the Aerospace and Aviation Awards 2023 in the voting form below for anyone you feel deserves to be recognised for their achievements this year.

Nominees for the awards are judged purely based on merit, and not on the number of votes received. The Business Concept team gather information independently from a collection of publicly-accessible sources, which are assessed alongside any material supplied by a nominating party or the nominee themselves.

The judging process is conducted methodically as the team strive to reward businesses based solely on the level of excellence demonstrated, the standard of their products and their commitment to service.

We take huge pride in ensuring that our awards are thoroughly deserved, whilst at the same time providing the opportunity to showcase and share these accomplishments to The Business Concept’s highly engaged circulation and consistent web traffic.

Each successful awardee in the Aviation and Aerospace Awards 2022 will be provided with access to our complimentary celebration package to help publicise their success. In addition, our awardees are welcome to choose from our range of competitively priced promotional opportunities to increase exposure of the good news!

In order to achieve recognition, there must be evidence of high-level expertise within any given sector, whilst also delivering to the highest standards of customer and client service.

If your business is one that’s committed to flying towards bigger and better things and would like to participate in the Aviation and Aerospace Awards 2023, or if you would like to nominate a party for consideration in this year’s awards, then please complete the voting form by clicking ‘Vote now’ at the top of the page.

Methodology

The researching of nominees

The The Business Concept team work ardently to identify the firms that are truly delivering and achieving great things for their industry sector. We drive many of the nominations ourselves and also encourage external nominations via subscribers, online visitors, social media followers, clients and wider circulation. Nominating parties are invited to put forward either third-party businesses whom they hold in high regard, or their own organisation.

The Shortlisting of nominees

All nominees are formally requested to accept their nomination. Should any firm or individual rather decline at this point, they are simply taken out of the running. Those who formally accept are given the opportunity to submit additional materials in support of their nomination. Although there is no obligation to complete and supply material, we have found that many nominees value this stage, in the process, and our research team find this very beneficial when determining businesses deserving of recognition.

Professional evaluation and judging of those shortlisted

Our dedicated research team will assess all information presented to them and also gather information independently from a variety of publicly accessible sources, which are assessed alongside any material supplied by a nominating party or the nominee themselves. The research team casts their final judgment, based on various criteria including client and customer dedication, innovation, business growth, longevity, online reputation, customer feedback and business performance.

Our winners

Once winners are determined, they are personally notified before any public announcement is made, allowing time for any communications throughout the wider business and the coordination of marketing strategies. Unfortunately, not everyone can be a winner; however, all who take part are encouraged to come back next year. Once the press embargo is lifted, details of our The Business Concept award winners will be made public via the website, award winners’ magazine and subscriber newsletter.

Gain maximum exposure for your win

The Business Concept award winners are offered a range of promotional packages which vary from inclusion in the free-of-charge winners’ directory, to trophies, content in our magazine and on our website. We encourage all winners to publicly announce their win independently. Announcements via company websites, social media, via publicly released press releases, and through local and national press are all great ways of maximising the exposure which can be gained from such an amazing achievement. If you have need of further advice, on how to gain maximum exposure from your win, please feel free to get in touch. We are more than happy to assist our clients with their marketing needs and initiatives.

FAQs

FAQs
How long has The Business Concept been around?+
The Business Concept as a stand alone brand has been launched early 2022, born out of a need for real focus on those truly innovate firms pushing boundaries and bringing pioneering concepts, ideas and businesses to the forefront of business. The Business Concept is owned by AI Global Media, a UK based digital group with 14 brands in its portfolio
Where do nominations come from?+
Nominations come to us via three avenues; we put forward businesses ourselves, we accept third-party nominations and businesses also have the option to put their own business for consideration. In the interest of nurturing an environment proven to produce a high response rate, we don’t ask nominees to reveal their identity at the time of submitting a nomination. The ability to succeed and ultimately win an award is not linked to the number of votes received, meaning your award is presented purely on merit. In the interest of security and fairness, we track unusual behaviour on our website to identify repeat votes and cyber-threats.
What happens if I agree to be shortlisted?+
In the interest of focusing our efforts on relevant and eager candidates, we ask all nominees to accept their position on the shortlist giving people complete control in the decision on whether they would like to move forward with the award. Nominees who accept are subject to our scrutiny during the internal vetting procedure and are given the opportunity to present their own data to be considered alongside information collated by our research team. This can take up to 8 weeks for final assessments to be rendered.
Who makes the final decision?+
We employ a highly diligent panel of 5 individuals to conduct all research. At the helm of the panel, is a veteran academic leader with international academic and training experience who is well versed in research, fact-checking and mediation.
Is there a winner’s ceremony or awards dinner?+
The short answer is no. Despite being an enjoyable occasion, it wouldn’t support our group’s philosophy of cost-effective marketing by holding a celebrator event. We follow the belief that optional costs associated with an award are better placed in a year’s worth of online marketing for the winner rather than spending large sums on a ceremony. Our press announcements are made digitally, online and across our network to enforce our position as digital publishers. We aim to provide you with the tools (both digital and physical) to generate real-world value.
What happens if I am successful?+
After you have been notified of your award win, we enforce a short press embargo while our dedicated awards team will liaise with you to establish your preferred method of coverage. Generally, our coverage takes the form of a digital celebratory magazine, we also offer physical trophies, wall mounted certificates and plaques and digital certificates, web-based advertisements and press releases which can be custom designed for you or your company.
Are there any costs involved?+
There are no compulsory costs in accepting a nomination or winning an award with The Business Concept. We do offer a variety of paid additional benefits for our winners, but these are completely optional. To demonstrate our commitment to no mandatory fees, all winners are offered a free of charge promotional package. Our company policy will always remain regardless of budget, our clients should always be able to garner the full value of the award and our seal of approval. We offer a variety of promotional opportunities to our winners, as we have an extensive network and we know, more than anyone, the wider business benefits from promoting industry awards.
