2017 Awards Update


The BABTAC & CIBTAC Annual Awards returns in 2017 as part of our 40th anniversary celebrations.

The BABTAC & CIBTAC Annual Awards is one of the most prestigious dates in the beauty industry calendar. Our awards seek to recognise and reward excellence within the industry and provides the opportunity to boost your profile, both locally and nationally. Winning an award can do wonders for morale and motivation, and can also reassure your clients that your services are recognised within the industry as first-class.

As 2017 marks the 40th anniversary of BABTAC & CIBTAC, this year’s awards will be a spectacular gala event to celebrate the past four decades of the beauty industry and look ahead to the future. Taking place in the stunning surroundings of a prestigious London venue, the evening will celebrate not only those winning awards, but all those who have contributed to the industry and those who continue to support BABTAC & CIBTAC, whether directly or indirectly through similar values and a shared goal.

The award ceremony will take place on Sunday 18th June at The Banking Hall London. In celebration of our 40th anniversary, this year's event will celebrate not only those winning awards,  but all those who have contributed to the industry and those who continue to support BABTAC & CIBTAC.

Awards Update

In early March we notified our Semi-finalists that they had succeeded in reaching the semi-finals. The Semi-finals stage consists of the contestants taking part in trade tests judged by our examiners. Those deemed to qualify at a high enough level by our examiners will be put through to the finals.

 Semi-final trade tests will take place over the next few weeks and finalists will be informed in late May along with the finalists and nominations for other categories, some of who do not need a formal assessment but who will be formally examined on the information provided.

We would like to congratulate all semi finalists  who will be identified in the next few weeks.
