BHBIA

Overview of the BOBI Awards

The BOBI Awards (Best of Business Intelligence) were launched in 2006 with the first awards being presented in 2007.

We are the first and only healthcare-specific business intelligence awards scheme in the UK, giving professionals in our industry an opportunity to gain peer recognition for excellence in business intelligence, market research (including fieldwork) and sales research/analytics.

The Awards Ceremony takes place at the BHBIA Annual Conference in May each year.
