Ventola Projects Ltd. Sponsor International Trade Award for Leicester Mercury Business Awards

When asked for his input to the 2020 Leicester Mercury Business Awards, Mick Ventola (Managing Director of Ventola Projects Ltd), saw a great opportunity to get the hard work and success of his international, exporting businesses the attention and promotion which he knew they deserved.

After a very constructive discussion with the event organisers, Mick not only got the International Trade category included within next year’s awards, but he also arranged to have Ventola Projects Ltd. sponsor it!

Sponsorship doesn’t just mean that Ventola Projects will be making a financial contribution. The package they have committed to starts with a launch breakfast in November, and then once officially open, Mick will be reading the entries, visiting the businesses who enter, whittling down the contenders to a panel of finalists and then choosing a winner and runner up from the final three. On top of that he will be heavily involved in the social media activity and general PR surrounding the category from launch to final awards presentation evening.

Mick will be approaching this challenge from a point of knowledge and experience. He and his team at Ventola Projects produce, ship and install lighting installations globally and have gained particular recognition in the USA and the Middle East for the supply of specialist entertainment facility light systems. As well as this, Mick himself is a Department of International Trade (DIT) Midlands Engine Export Champion – a role which regularly finds him delivering seminars and workshops on selling to an overseas market.

Mick’s vast knowledge and keen eye for international opportunity means he is perfectly placed to champion this exciting new award. His own amazing track record means that he knows exactly what he is looking for within the candidates – businesses who have increased their exports year on year and/or have shown progressive growth in the export market.

Despite the time commitment that this award will require, Mick wanted to participate as much as he could. He understands the huge importance of exports by Leicestershire businesses and he saw this as an extension of his work with the Midlands Engine. When asked directly about his decision to sponsor the category he said:

“The sponsorship of this award allows me to be heavily involved with like-minded businesspeople. I’m keen to participate in the many networking events throughout the process and get a real understanding of what is going on within other companies who are meeting the challenge of export. There is obviously also a charitable aspect to what we are doing and that allows Ventola Projects to share our success and essentially ‘give a little back’. Exporting can be hard work, so it’s great to give some recognition to those who succeed, despite the time and effort involved.”
