The M&IT Industry Awards auction will open January 2018. The auction will raise funds for the meetings industry’s own charity, Meeting Needs.
Prizes are generously donated by suppliers in the industry and the auction is open to anyone to bid on.
Supporting the auction supports you too! By donating a prize to the next M&IT online auction, you will not only be making a valuable difference to the way disadvantaged people live but you will also receive outstanding company exposure during the course of the auction, highlighting your product, logo, images and link to your own site.
Meeting Needs is a registered charity founded by leading figures in the UK conference and events Industry. The objective of Meeting Needs is to raise funds for worthy causes relevant to the events industry which may not have the resources to raise sufficient funds without additional contributions. Many needy causes do not have access to public funding and Meeting Needs can provide financial support to these types of organisations through various fund-raising initiatives and activities.
Beneficiaries have included
Working with “Build It International” and the Katole community to construct a new, high quality primary school building that will give 585 children access to a full primary education with a qualified teacher, two classroom blocks, clean water and installation of solar lighting.
Supporting “Just a Drop” who work with communities across the globe to provide sustainable affordable safe water, sanitation and hygiene education to support community development and economic growth, saving and transforming lives.
Closer to home “South London Cares” a community network of young professionals and older neighbours hanging out and helping one another in Southwark and Lambeth. Through Social Clubs, one-to-one “Love Your Neighbour” programme and pro-active outreach, older and younger neighbours share time, company and friendship.
This year we raised a whopping £43,000 thanks to your generous donations.
