With the 2020 East Midlands Bricks Awards drawing nearer, there are just 23 days left until nominations close.

Shining a light on the outstanding work of those shaping the landscape across the East Midlands, this year’s highly-anticipated awards ceremony will take place on Wednesday 25th March 2020, at Trent Bridge Cricket Ground in the Derek Randall Suite.

Here Mark Oakley, Director of Inward Investment and Place Marketing at Leicester City Council, offers his thoughts on the importance of events like the East Midlands Bricks Awards, and celebrates the property and construction industry in Leicester and Leicestershire.

Mark Oakley said: “Leicester and Leicestershire is the largest economy in the East Midlands and growing.

“Major ongoing and planned investment is benefitting from our global connectivity and I want to encourage businesses in the property and construction industry to consider entering events like the Brick Awards that help celebrate what is great about the East Midlands.

“From transformation of Leicester’s Waterside Regeneration area, including recent completion of the £50m Charles Street Buildings’ Great Central Square scheme providing fabulous new Grade A office space, new hotels and leisure offer, and the emerging £100m Space Park Leicester which is now on site; through to Leicester City Football Club’s world class training facility under construction ready for next season, large format advanced logistics and engineering investment around East Midlands Airport, opportunities at Lutterworth East and Access Group’s new £20m state of the art office headquarters growing Loughborough University’s Science and Enterprise Park, there is a lot to be proud of.”
