Awards Dinner

The Credit Excellence Awards have established themselves as a real judge of excellence in the industry, as applicants compete to win one of only eight awards and to be on a finalists’ shortlist of only three.

With a reception area and dining facilities overlooking Tower Bridge and the River Thames, the Guoman Tower Hotel offers the perfect climax to a day of learning and networking, allowing you to meet and network with your peers in a relaxed environment.

Apply For An Award

For further information on applying for an award in 2017, please contact Stephen Kiely at

Who can apply?

The Credit Excellence Awards are unique because applications for each category are open to the whole range of the industry in those sectors. So you can apply if you are an individual credit professional, a team, a consumer or commercial creditor, a supplier company, or a product.

Each Credit Excellence Award is rigorously judged by an independent panel of experts in that field. So applicants must be prepared to give significant amounts of relevant information to support their application. They must also be ready, if asked, to come before the judges so that they can ask questions face to face.
