Glitz & Glamour On The Red Carpet 2016!
“As I entered the Bristol Marriott Hotel city centre, the energy in the lobby hit me. They often say your energy introduces you before you speak. Well, this is it, I said to myself, buzzing, empowering & diverse. People across communities gathered, shared and networked, it was like the release of a world premiere. Let me say that again, so it sinks in, it was empowering & world-class. The evening created a community spirit; one that bonded each and every one of us in the room. I can’t wait for more events like this that connect me to a community that is looking to rise together”, an MTM nominee 2016.

MTM Gallery 2012 – The Inaugural Evening
MTM recognises the challenges most Asian, Black & Ethnic Communities overcome to get ahead in business and profession, hence we initiated the awards as an incentive to motivate these businesses, professionals and community heroes.
The awards were launched in July 2012 to honour the South Asian communities in the South West. These communities had not been recognised in any of the local award events in the South West and our founder found they need to Honour The Best of this enterprising community, showcase their potential and make in-roads for them to participate equally in business and community projects.
MTM South Asian Awards was held on December 1st, the 1st elected Mayor of Bristol George Ferguson as chief guest… an evening to remember..the rest is history. The first award of the evening, World Foods Mini-Market Award was presented by three-time Lord Mayor of Bristol Cllr. Peter Abraham to the winners Bristol Sweetmart.
