The Fit Out Awards provide an opportunity to celebrate excellence in the execution of world-class fit outs; to have your work reviewed by leading industry experts; to get recognition from your peers; benchmark against your competitors; and attract new clients and top talent to your organisation. But don't just take our word for it; read some of the thoughts of our past entrants and sponsors below.
"This event is always great for socialising, for meeting people in the industry. So, I think it is probably the premier event in the calendar for fit out, for architects and clients and property people. So, it is great to be here, great to win a few awards."
Ralph Bingham, MOLA Architecture
Winner of Fit Out Project of the Year - International, Fit Out Project of the Year - Small Office over €500K 2019
“It’s really good to be in front of all your peers. The ‘Large Fit Out’ category was an extremely tough category; our competition was amazing this year. And the Fit Out of the Year’ has just blown us away, it was amazing to get that with the competition in the room, just spectacular.”
Nikki Fetherston, Henry J Lyons
Winner of Fit Out Project of the Year & Fit Out Project of the Year - Large Office in 2019
"I was delighted! It was a very important project for us. We love these types of projects and we love getting recognition for our work. Really good fun, really good room. Lots of people tonight, very lively. All round good evening."
Mark Kennedy, Reddy Architecture + Urbanism
Winner of Fit Out Project of the Year - Public Sector & Fit Out Project of the Year - Medium Office in 2019
"It was great to re-live what we did over a year ago and it was a fantastic project to win. It is always a great night, so many faces and names, people you have met over the course of the year - it is good to see them all dressed up for the night! We had good fun as well."
Ronan Hollohan, MILLIMETRE DESIGN
Winner of Fit Out Project of the Year - Hospitality in 2019
“We are very happy with the sponsorship of this event. Tonight, we met most of our customers that we deal with in Ireland. There was a good mix of developers, architects and fit out contractors. It’s been excellent.”
Todd Altman, Chief Executive, SAS international, 2019 sponsor
“I must be in the industry for 25-30 years and it’s probably the best accolade I have had from my peers; and my clients where at the table, as was my wife, so it was really fantastic.”
Barry McCabe, McCabe Design Group
Winner of Fit Out Designer of the Year in 2017
“It’s been a long journey, lots of hard work and we’re absolutely delighted that it’s come into fruition and been acknowledged here this evening. I’m absolutely delighted to be the recipient of this award, we’re just so honoured at Press Up that all our work has come and arrived at this point where we’re here receiving this award, it’s fantastic.”
Matt Ryan, Press Up Entertainment Group
Outstanding Contribution Award 2018 recipient
“Really exciting, it’s the who is who of the fit out industry. So many familiar faces and so many people who we’ve never met in person but talk to regularly over the phone and email, and it’s a great opportunity to chat to these people in a social setting. It will raise our profile in the marketplace, and we recently purchased Nora rubber flooring and we want to mark that with some publicity.”
Pat Buckley, Account Manager, Interface, 2019 sponsor
“We’ve been supporting this event for four years now and it’s a great night because it allows everybody in the industry to appreciate all the hard work done over the past year and actually recognise the people who have put in those long hours, the long lost weekends, and be able to mingle in a formal way and to enjoy the night and to have a good time.”
Aaron O’Grady, Founder, Vision Creative Studios, 2019 sponsor
“There are companies who we’ve not heard of, there are companies we’ve heard of, there are companies we want to work with and there’s companies we do work with. You send emails every day, hundreds of emails to these guys and you’re just a word at the end of a computer but to see them shake hands and get to know them personally is really good.”
Tony Ptohopoulos, Managing Director, Riverside Group, 2018 sponsor
