The best work in healthcare communications shines at virtual Communiqué Awards

First virtual awards takes social media by storm

Cx virtual awards

In a year marked by unprecedented change and a new necessity for adaptability, the Communiqué Awards held its first virtual awards event last night showcasing the best work in healthcare communications.

The annual Communiqué Awards2020 was broadcast live straight to the screens of those watching at home yesterday, with 1,400 live views and 37,000 minutes watched in total. The live screening also took social media by storm – 500 tweets were sent, and of those, 370 went on the Communiqué social media wall.

This impressive activity also resulted in the Communiqué hashtag – #cxhealth – trending 9th in the UK, and another 600 views have been recorded since the livestream of the awards took place.

The live stream awards ceremony was hosted by BBC World News presenter, journalist and author Babita Sharma, with the Communiqué Awards co-chairs Louise Dunn and Annabelle Sandeman kicking off the awards with an opening address.

A comprehensive range of companies were recognised throughout the ceremony – out of the 29 categories, the finalists included 50 agencies, 40 pharma companies and ten charities.

Commenting on the success of the first virtual Communiqué Awards, Debbie Tuesley, events director at PMGroup said: “It was fantastic to see such a positive response both before, during and now after to the live stream awards. In this exceptional year, we have been very proud to ensure that the outstanding work taking place in support of patients in the healthcare medical affairs and communications industry can continue to be recognised.”
