Championing sport in Wales at the WSA Sports Industry Awards 2024

Our firm is all set to help celebrate the outstanding achievements within the Welsh sport and leisure sector at this year’s WSA Sports Industry Awards.

Held at the Parkgate Hotel on Thursday 6th June 2024, the awards aim to recognise and promote the greatest initiatives and successes of WSA members. In doing so, the event will also highlight best-practice models and strategies that contribute to the development of the sport in Wales.

Across the eight award categories up for grabs for WSA members from today, the event will shine a light on matters such as EDI, innovation, and sustainability in sport. As proud sponsors of the Most Influential Campaign (Communications, PR or Advocacy) category, we expect to help showcase the great work of WSA members across these important topics, and more, relevant to the industry.
