Rejoice! It’s B&T’s 30 Under 30 Shortlist For 2017!

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls. The entries are in, the stewards will enter into no further negotiations and B&T can report the class of 2017’s shortlist for 30 under 30 has been indelibly entered into the ledger.

Brought to you by our very dear friends at NewsMediaWorks, B&T’s 30 Under 30 saw records tumble yet again this year as more than 300 of our industry’s finest threw their hats into the ring to be adjudged one to watch.

Judges, who we remain eternally indebted to for their hard work and careful consideration, remarked on the quality of entries as being of a very high standard.

And while they have managed to whittle the initial hoard down to a manageable 127, there’s more work ahead of them to arrive at a final three across the ten categories for 2017. And so, with no further ado, except for a final hat tip to all of our sponsors, here is the moment you’ve all been waiting for.

Oh, but you better secure your tickets here now to avoid disappointment.

And then, if you want to be on this list next year we can’t recommend our Towards 2030 forum enough.
