1) Plan ahead and Start early - Consider the awards criteria when planning your projects. Set clear objectives and ensure that your achievements meet them and Give yourself plenty of time to prepare your entry. Find out the entry deadline and make a start on gathering the information required for your chosen category at least 4-6 weeks ahead.

Always back up your claims with hard evidence, especially statistical and testimonial. Provide compelling before and after data, and quotes from third parties, wherever possible

*Where GPA provides delegates with admission only to a UK event, the delegate charge should be treated as taxable where the event takes place for UK VAT purposes.  For example, where GPA, as a established business in the UK, organises and subsequently charges delegates access to a UK event, it will likely be required to also charge its customers UK VAT.  This VAT treatment applies irrespective of the business status of the customer and also irrespective of where the customer is located / based / usually resides.  This position is in line with VAT Act 1994, Sch. 4A para 9A for B2B sales of admission, and VAT Act 1994, Sch. 4A para 14A for B2C sales of admission.
