Power NI scooped the ‘Best New Sponsor’ Award at the Allianz Arts & Business Awards
The award celebrated the partnership between Power NI and the Cathedral Quarter Trust. Together, the two brands have worked to create huge crowd drawing events for both Culture Night 2018 & 2019.
With a shared vision and goals, Power NI and Culture Night Belfast have reached over 100,000 people with both the 'Lighting Up Generations' light show & 'Power NI Presents' mini music festival. The two events mark a large investment in the arts from Northern Ireland’s largest electricity supplier who aims to make communities stronger through sponsorship.
Gemma-Louise Bond, Senior Sponsorship & Events Executive at Power NI who has managed the partnership commented,
‘We are absolutely thrilled with our New Sponsor Award from Arts & Business. Our core values are about promoting togetherness and inclusivity and Culture Night provides both of these in abundance. This award truly cements us as a true friend and partner of the Arts in the business community’.
Power NI faced still competition with entries from other big NI companies such as Translink, Belfast Harbour and Hagan Homes. This is the first award Power NI have received for sponsorship since their strategy was rolled out in April 2018.
Power NI also works with The Mary Peters Trust, Antrim & Newtownabbey Council, National Museums Northern Ireland as well as providing community groups with much needed funding via their Brighter Communities fund.
