As an industry that is all about looking good it is no surprise that we all like donning our glad rags and attending a glamorous shindig. The Aesthetic Awards is the premier awards event for the aesthetics industry and is not only a chance to get dressed up and enjoy a good party but is also a chance to celebrate the achievements of the practitioners, clinics, products and treatments that represent the gold standard in cosmetic medicine.
This year’s Awards dinner will take place on Saturday December 7 at The Grange Tower Bridge Hotel, London and will have a Winter Wonderland theme. Online entries are still open and will close on August 1, 2013. Entering could not be simpler. Just go to www.cosmeticnewsuk.com and fill out our online entry form.
You can enter as many categories as you like as well as nominating other people, products, companies and associations who you think are worthy winners.
If you have never entered before then why not give it a try? Winning an aesthetic award or even being a shortlisted finalist has proved to be a fantastic marketing tool for those who have entered, enabling them to show their clients that they stand out from the crowd and have gone that extra mile. If you are proud of what you do or know someone you think deserves recognition then make sure you enter or nominate before August 1.
Once all the entries have been received and the short lists have been compiled voting will be opened. The voting process will be between August 15 and October 15 1. Shortlisted clinics will also be mystery shopped during this time.
A note on voting
Each person can only vote once. Multiple votes under the same name or from the same email address will be discounted. Multiple voting from within the short listed finalist’s organizations will also be monitored. Voting is IP address monitored. Voting will open on August 15, 2013.
A note on mystery shopping
Please note that mystery shoppers will not be booking in for any surgical or invasive procedures. They are instructed to book in for a consultation and/or non-invasive treatment, where appropriate, and will be examining the clinic facilities; the telephone and in person customer service; the staff/practitioners; the range of treatments available and the consultation process. You are not obliged to give away any treatments if you do not wish to however it does help if the mystery shopper is able to try out a suitable treatment to enable them to get the full experience of your clinic. We also ask that you waive the cost of the consultation/treatment. The mystery shopper will present you with a voucher once they come to pay. If you do not agree to giving away a free consultation/treatment you will need to let us know as soon as the short lists come out. This will not affect your place in the final short list, however it may affect your score as the mystery shopper will not be able to mark you on certain areas. You will not be marked down in any way for refusing treatment following consultation if it is not appropriate for that patient.
