I received this award from the Belfast Visitor and Convention Bureau jointly with my colleague John Devaney. The award was made in recognition of our work in organising the eighth international congress of the British Association for the Study and Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect which took place at Queen's University Belfast in April 2012. The congress attracted 720 delegates from 28 countries over four days, generating £1.5 million for the local economy. During the congress delegates heard over 300 presentations on the latest research findings and practice developments relating to the protection of children from abuse and neglect.
