Finalists for the new-look 2014 Flame Awards were announced yesterday afternoon by ukactive CEO David Stalker during a live webinar.

The awards will take place on 2 July at Telford International Centre and will be held in conjunction with the annual Flame Conference

This year's event has undergone a shake up to better reflect how the leisure sector has evolved and to create opportunities for clubs, industry suppliers and stakeholders to celebrate how their work impacts health.

The Flame Awards 2014, sponsored by Matrix, will also see the introduction of new awards and for the first time operators and suppliers will be up against each other in a number of new categories.

These new categories include ‘Workplace Wellbeing’, ‘Shaping the Future Generation’, ‘Go Green’ and ‘Go Outdoors’.

Another addition is the ‘Supplier of the Year’ award. This category will give suppliers the opportunity to put themselves forward against the best in the sector.
