Manchester to host prestigious national ‘Women of the Year’ awards 2024

The Women of the Year Luncheon and Awards has announced its 2024 Awards will be taking place for the first time in Manchester.

The event, in its 42nd year, takes place at The Etihad on October 11 and will celebrate the achievements of exceptional women across the UK. More than 400 guests are expected to attend.

It is the first time the organisation has selected Manchester to host the awards, and in recognition of the city where the suffragette movement famously began, there is a new category named The Emmeline Award – Woman of Courage.

The awards’ headline sponsor for 2024 is award-winning bank Aldermore which is returning for its second year. Other key sponsors include law firm Freeths LLP, LSH Auto, Pertemps PLC, Roland Dransfield PR, and Strategi Solutions.

The team behind Women of the Year recently came together with 2023 winners and supporters at The Etihad to further celebrate the winners and their achievements. The evening also gave a taste of what Women of the Year Luncheon and Awards has in store for 2024.

In attendance were Zalena Vandrewala, managing associate at national law firm, Freeths LLP, who is chair of the board of Women of the Year alongside Manchester-based actress Sally Lindsay (pictured), president of the organisation.

2023 winner of the Business Woman of the year award Clair Heaviside, co-founder and creative director of Manchester-based Serotonin Digital Marketing Agency, also attended to celebrate alongside her alumni.

Zalena said: “We are thrilled to be bringing our established event to Manchester this year. Manchester is obviously central to the history of women, and we had to recognise it with the introduction of our new category, The Emmeline Award – Woman of Courage.

“The awards celebrate great achievements by women across society, not just in business. We want to promote the inspirational role models amongst us and what better place to do so than Manchester – the birthplace of the Suffragette movement.”

Women of the Year is also proud supporters of The Prince’s Trust, last year donating £13,000 to the charity.

Further information on nominations for 2024 will be revealed at the official launch of the 2024 Awards taking place at the House of Lords on March 7, 2024.
