STATEMENT: BIG EVENTS Apologises For Hitches At RTP Awards

Big Events Company, the organizers and initiators of the Radio and Television Personality Awards (RTP) wishes to apologize to all award winners, sponsors, performers, the media and the paying publicfor shortcomings identified at the year�s RTP Awards ceremony at the Accra International Conference Centre last Thursday. Big Events admits that this year�s awards ceremony fell short of its own high quality standards. This year�s event faced so many challenges with production which eventually impacted on the performers� ability to participate in the event. The last minute constrains and resource challenges were mainly production driven arising from a deal with a third party. All these impacted negatively on the event which has had a good reputation for the past two years. As a Ghanaian company that seeks to celebrate media excellence, we have no doubt that the event fell short of our standards and we wish to apologize sincerely for the disappointment. As the leader of the team, I take full responsibility for the shortcomings and wish to reinstate our commitment to the Awards. We deeply regret the situation and sincerely apologize for the inconveniences. Big Events hopes to continue its productive relations with the media and other stakeholders and to enjoy their support and understanding of the general public. The company will ensure that its numerous stakeholders, including the award winners, sponsors, invited guests, performing artistes all over the country will be more than satisfied with the organisation of future events. All our patrons who have been part of the past two events know the quality of the work we have done within this short period of two years and we will do our best to restore the event to its rightful place in the calendar of the media. About RTP The Radio and Television Personality Awards seeks to reward Radio and Television Personalities who have excelled in their work. The Awards ceremony was instituted in 2011 and this year�s event was the third since it was established. Signed Prince Mackay CEO, Big Events Ghana
