Welcoming over 3600 people across communities at the Glittering Gala Evening, over 1500 nominees making it to the nomination shortlist and over 70,000 voting online since inception in 2012.
MTM Awards is a leading player in promoting & honouring diverse business and community groups. We are renowned for changing perceptions and pushing boundaries, offering audiences a world-class Glittering Gala Award Evening and nominees an extraordinary experience of a lifetime to showcase their excellence & achievements in business and community work.
MTM Awards was launched to Honour The Best in the South West Asian community from the Indian sub-continent. The Awards were first held in December 2012 with over two hundred nominated for the 23 awards in business, community work, and professional services.
In 2014 the awards opened doors to more ethnic communities in the region and re-branded as the MTM Asian & Ethnic Minorities Awards, finally, in 2015 the awards were open to all BAME communities and named the MTM Asian, Black & Ethnic Minorities Awards. This increased participation and diversity for the awards.
MTM is the only awards in the United Kingdom that include all Asian, Black & Ethnic communities and provides nominees, guests and the business elite with the opportunity to engage with thriving local and national business, cultures and faiths spanning international waters, as well as those on our doorstep.
MTM Awards provide a perfect setting for networking in a unique cultural environment at the Bristol Marriott Hotel based in the heart of Bristol. The venue is transformed into a glittering gala evening, the only awards ceremony of this type in the South West, welcoming a multitude of guests from diverse communities in the country and international waters.
We are unrivalled in that we receive a remarkable number of nominations to the awards each year. The introduction of the National Award For Excellence & Achievement and the International Award in 2016 gave the awards a national and international participation.
Isn’t It About Time!
