THE search for PA of the Year 2008 will end tonight as the winner is announced at a glittering awards ceremony at Warwickshire County Cricket Club.
Sponsored by Tirebuck Career Solutions, PA networking association Pears, and the Birmingham Post, the event aims to honour the top organisers in the industry, and to stand as a monument to the hard work and dedication of PAs across the business and public sectors in the West Midlands.
This year’s bash will feature a reception, three-course dinner, awards presentation, charity raffle, and dancing until midnight, with the winner receiving a seven-night holiday for two to North Cyprus – provided by Anatolian Sky Holidays.
The holiday includes a stay at the Dome Hotel – in the heart of Kyrenia. It is the longest established hotel in North Cyprus and offers a quiet charm.
The hotel is perfectly placed on the sea-front – a short stroll from the picturesque harbour with shops, restaurants and bars. Winning two awards in as many years for the Best Independent Tour Operator to Turkey & North Cyprus, Anatolian Sky Holidays is a company dedicated to high quality and personal service and prides itself on providing discerning travellers with top quality holidays at affordable prices.
Birmingham-based live events company PSP will provide audio-visual equipment for PA of the Year 2008.
The company has launched Animotion Live – a revolutionary system which provides real time on-screen animated characters for live events, enabling a virtual character to interact live with the audience in real time.
The system has already been used to host an event with Steve Wozniak (co-founder of Apple Computers) where a virtual ‘humanoid’ was interviewed.
David Woodcock, of PSP, said: “This is a very exciting time for us. The product has been in development for a year and the results are exceptional.
“Clients are looking at event budgets closely and instead of hiring a celebrity to host their event they can hire a virtual host. The wow factor is also a talking point and creates a buzz around events. Audiences are often stunned as they find it difficult to comprehend a virtual character interacting.”
