Learning Technologies Awards 2020 Announced

LT Awards 2019London (UK), May 2020 - The Learning Technologies Awards 2020 programme has been announced, including information about when the awards entry opens; three new categories including onboarding, data analytics, and COVID-19 response; sponsorship opportunities; and key dates.

The 2020 Learning Technologies Awards have now been launched. Entry into the Learning Technologies Awards 2020 provides an outstanding opportunity for learning professionals to gain international recognition for their work.

The Learning Technologies Awards attract media coverage from both the learning sector's media and beyond, helping learning providers build customer trust and confidence, impress potential investors, and provide employees with international recognition for their work.

"There is no greater recognition of your hard work and commitment to the learning industry than winning a Learning Technologies Award. Obviously these are challenging times for everyone, and we have been pleasantly surprised to see that we've already had awards registrations within the first 24 hours of opening. This is something we've never seen before and is a real testament of how resilient and adaptable our community is," explains event organiser Mark Penton.

Any organisation anywhere in the world whether in the public, private, or non-profit sector can enter, regardless of size or industry.  There are lots of reasons why entering makes good business sense.

"As well as being a terrific way to showcase the quality of work people produce to as many potential customers as possible, it's also an opportunity to look at your business from a different perspective and compare yourself to your competitors. Winning or even just being shortlisted for an award is an independent endorsement that sets you apart from your competitors," added Penton.

The glittering gala evening, when the winners are exclusively revealed, will take place 18 November 2020 at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel in London, and the organisers are working closely with the venue and following government guidelines to ensure we run the event as safely as possible. They want to ensure that everyone gets to celebrate the L&D sector’s great hard work and are looking at all options available to make sure this happens.

To enter an award, organisations first need only choose their categories and register before the 30 June deadline. Written submissions then follow in July, followed by an online judging process in September and October.

There are twenty awards categories from which to choose, including three new ones covering onboarding, data analytics, and COVID-19 response.
