TAF Awards

Our 2023 Awards

Welcome to the Trade Association Forum’s TA Best Practice Awards supported by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. These awards recognise, reward and promote best practice among trade associations in the UK.

This prestigious award ceremony is eagerly anticipated by Trade Associations across the UK as a chance to showcase their hard work and achievements. The judges welcome entries covering the period since September 2021

why enter?

These industry recognised awards are supported by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) which is a longstanding member of our independent final judging panel. The Best Practice Awards contribute to the success of trade associations and their staff at all levels within the trade association world and help bring them closer to fulfilling their goals, as well as contributing to their learning and development opportunities.


Receiving a Best Practice Award will mean your organisation has the kudos of being an award-winning organisation. On top of that, it is an excellent opportunity to showcase your organisation and its expertise among your contemporaries and encourage others to follow your lead on running a successful organisation which focuses on members’ needs.


By entering, you can benchmark your organisation against other UK trade associations, sharpen the focus of your organisation and its activities, learn from trade association best practice and motivate and reward your colleagues.  


Your success will initially be shared with guests from the UK’s premier trade associations at the awards evening on Thursday 23rd  February 2023 at the stunning Merchants Taylors Hall, in London, and then promoted through press releases, the TAF website and social media channels to ensure your excellence is recognised.
