In this dynamic trading and business environment, judges will be looking for entries from either domestic or international traders that have shown creativity in trade activities. Entries should showcase success and leadership in adapting to changes in trade flows, and the opening up new supply sources and demand centres in support of the LPG community and local economies. Judges will consider trading activities, contracts or partnerships established between July 2019 and August 2020.


Amid the backdrop of the Covid-19 pandemic, this award will look to recognise companies that demonstrate innovation, resilience and sustainability despite the tough circumstances. Entries should showcase how they had to pivot and build in digital resiliency to ensure continuity in customer experience, operational efficiency and competitive edge. Judges will be looking for examples of how digital transformation for these companies has driven positive outcomes such as streamlining processes, harnessing data or shaping entirely new ways of doing business.


Entries for the technology award are open to technology companies or individuals working for the benefit of the LPG industry. This award is for technology in its broadest sense, whether that be engineering, HSE, digital or any other technology that adds value to the LPG industry and the people that work in it. Judges will be looking for technology that has made the LPG industry safer, more successful and more sustainable. The winner will be picked based on a technological solution that is one-of-a-kind and evidently improved the LPG business.


Judges will be looking for associations with innovative government programmes that enable businesses to connect and grow. Entries should also showcase policies that drive progress towards sustainability. Submissions must provide examples of how the association has had a direct impact on changing legislation, government incentives, new regulations or industry investments. For this award, the industry will celebrate the association on the clarity of its roadmap and the results it has achieved.
