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.

William Grant & Sons UK is honoured to sponsor the ‘Newcomer of the Year’ award at the 2019 Catey Awards. Our founder, William Grant, had a vision to create ‘the best dram in the valley’. With help from his family, he built the Glenfiddich distillery with his own bare hands, and the first liquid fell from the stills on Christmas Day 1887.
Through hard work and entrepreneurial spirit his vision is now a reality, with Glenfiddich being the most awarded single malt whisky in the world. We are still family-owned to this day, which allows us to retain William’s entrepreneurial spirit, by doing things the right way, taking no short cuts.
We encourage all our employees to craft their own legacy, just like William did. It is this endeavour to nurture independent spirits that we believe will continue to drive growth for our portfolio of premium spirits. Let’s all celebrate innovators at the start of their journeys, who have been nominated for the ‘Newcomer of the Year’ award this evening. Sláinte.
