The inaugural Jersey Style Awards took place at the Royal Showground in Trinity, Jersey on Saturday 24th June 2017 and was a spectacular success.
This new and exciting red carpet black tie gala dinner was designed to shine an international spotlight on the local tourism economy, food and travel, arts & culture and style from our magnificent jewel in the British Isles. We showcased this magnificent island of ours as one of the most stylish and sought after destinations in the world, highlighting the 48 businesses in the shortlist.
The glamorous award ceremony honoured, nurtured and recognised the local businesses, people and places and we saluted international tastemakers and fashion's most stylish celebrities as they attended our glittering gala.
We brought together a high profile panel of judges from across industry sectors who complemented the public vote which took place on the island, allowing everyone to have a voice.
The event received national and international coverage equating to some £795,000 worth of media exposure to a reach of 13 million audience (as evaluated by Precise Media Monitoring in London). Our social media campaign was also hugely successfully with many of our incredible celebrities sharing their visit on their own platforms, resulting in an additional 2.5 million reach on socials. Quite simply we are changing the conversation for Jersey and providing an unrivalled platform for our local talent.
In April we will be announcing our 2019 sponsor and partner lineup. These global luxury brands and corporate players have come together to support the wealth of talent and creativity that hails from this wonderful island. From our luxury car partner to global aviation and fine jewels we will be revealing these exciting brands that will be working together to produce the most exciting red carpet night of the year in Jersey. Make sure you get your VIP ticket before it's too late!
Ultimately these awards aren't just about a congratulatory nod; a nomination provided many local businesses large and small, brands, innovators, artists and cultural attractions with a wonderful opportunity to showcase their worth on an unrivalled national platform.
