The Blue Badge Access Awards are a unique design competition which seeks original ideas to improve access and provide an enhanced experience for hotel guests and travellers, particularly for those with disabilities.
Since 2016, the awards have enjoyed support from Her Majesty’s Government, peers in the House of Lords, a wide range of disability groups, the media, hospitality organisations, as well as sponsors and entrants from around the world.
As we move into the next phase, the Awards are broadening in scope, with barriers to entry being further reduced. We will continue to engage with the design and architectural communities, who have been immensely proactive in their support thus far, but we wish to cast the net a little wider, as well as to encourage those who wouldn’t necessarily consider themselves ‘creatives’ or ‘designers’ to participate in the process and share their ideas.

Last year, Schweppes unveiled its biggest ever brand investment, which included the launch of a range of naturally flavoured premium mixers called 1783. Schweppes 1783 includes Crisp Tonic Water, Light Tonic Water, Quenching Cucumber Tonic Water and Salty Lemon Tonic Water and are delicious pairings for premium spirits, delivering a great tasting natural flavour for cocktails and mixed drinks.
