Karen Morris, MD of Reg&Co. the appointed sponsorship agency of IWSC added,

“We are delighted that Forsyths have renewed their partnership with our long-standing client the IWSC. They join Double Dutch, as another category sponsor, who we appointed in 2021 with hopefully more to be confirmed before the awards ceremony later in the year.”
