About #CEYH2017

Gala Presentation Evening – join over 350 of your professional peers!

Friday 7th July 2017, 18:30 onwards

The Queen’s Ballroom, Queen’s Hotel, Leeds

Held every year in July our awards are a celebration of the very best the regional construction industry has to offer, recognising and rewarding the pioneering individuals, projects and organisations that are truly moving our sector forward. Our ethos for these awards is that they serve two primary functions ;

  1. An opportunity for your teams to get recognition and reward for the work they do and how it contributes to the wider reputation and image of the industry.
  2. An opportunity to promote sector wide collaboration, offer multiple opportunities for networking, forging and brokering new relationships and sharing learning so that we can all build that little bit better.

Even if you haven’t entered this year, there is much value to be gained from attending, viewing the projects shortlisted and mingling with some of the region’s most influential companies and professionals!

2017 THEME 

10 YEARS OF CELEBRATING CONSTRUCTION IN OUR REGION! CEYH (and it’s various guises) have been running these awards for ten years now. In celebration of that fact, Hull’s City of Culture 2017 status and the region’s ongoing recognition as a premier tourist destination, this year we are celebrating all that is great and good about Yorkshire and Humber, from innovative buildings, beautiful art and architecture to picture postcard scenery and cutting edge music! We have plenty of surprises planned for the evening itself so book now and join in the fun!

OUR HOST – Danni Hewson, BBC Look North


Danni Hewson is BBC Look North’s award winning Business and Money Correspondent.  Danni has worked for the BBC for 13 years and during that time she has broadcast from fishing boats out in the North Sea, deep down in our last remaining coal mines and from a whole host of the region’s manufacturing bases.  Danni started her career in local radio before being lured to London by ITN where she presented updates for Five News.  Here in Yorkshire she’s fronted the BBC’s regional Politics Show and has even shared the sofa with Harry Gration.  She’s interviewed Prime Ministers, CEOs of multi-national corporations and Hollywood movie stars.  Danni juggles her demanding career with her responsibilities as a mum of two young girls.

OUR KEYNOTE – Rosie Millard, Chair of Hull: UK City of Culture 2017

Journalist, broadcaster, cultural commentator and author Rosie Millard is the Chair of the charitable trust that will run Hull: UK City of Culture 2017. Having arrived at the University of Hull more than 30 years ago to study for a degree in English and Drama, arts specialist Rosie maintains close links with the city.

She writes for most of the UK’s broadsheet newspapers and has a weekly column in the Independent as well as co-director of Snapper TV, which makes current affairs and arts programmes for BBC1, ITV1 and Channel 4. Rosie spent a decade as BBC Arts Correspondent, another decade as lead feature writer and columnist for the Sunday Times and several years as arts editor and theatre critic at the New Statesman. She is regularly invited to speak on national radio and TV, makes regular documentaries on culture and lifestyle for BBC Radio Four and says she never misses an opportunity to write or talk about Hull. As a student at the University of Hull in the mid-1980s, Rosie worked on arts engagement projects & continues to be a passionate believer in the importance of accessibility to the arts for all. Rosie lives in London, has four children and is a keen marathon runner but visits Hull regularly to support the city’s arts and educational institutions.

The Finalists

Thank you to everyone who has supported this year’s #CEYH2017 awards. We were pleased once again to see variety permeating throughout the entries with organisations and projects of all shapes and sizes, representing all the sub regions submitted. The feedback from the judges is that the standard has been particularly high this year with some very difficult decisions being made which can only bode well for construction in the region. Congratulations to all those shortlisted and best of luck on the evening itself!
