From Joe Wilmot, Host Officer

Welcome to Quays TV, the hosts of The 47th Annual National Student Television Awards.

We really look forward to welcoming you to the “Costa Del Salford” in October, the heart of UK television.

We’ve got a really interesting venue right in MediaCityUK which we cannot WAIT for you to see, where we’ll be having a fabulous and glamorous evening too.

QuaysTV attended it’s first ever NaSTA Awards last year and we weren’t too shabby if we say so ourselves, so we thought, why not host one? Casual.

We look forward to seeing you in October,

Joe Wilmot
Host Officer
