Exhibition, events and experiential design company Ignition, a WEConnect International certified women's business enterprise, has been awarded The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Sustainable Development in the new 2020 list. The Queen's Awards for Enterprise is an awards programme for British businesses and other organisations who excel at international trade, innovation or sustainable development and represents the highest official UK awards for British businesses.

Ignition, founded by Claire Menzies in 2007, is a sustainable practice pioneer, thanks to its founder’s commitment to doing business in a thoughtful, green and responsible way since inception – carving a unique path within an industry once known for excessive, waste-creating ‘build and burn’ attitudes.
