Innovation Awards Headline Sponsor

LeicestershireLive Innovation Awards 2023

Many congratulations to all of the nominees and winners from the LeicestershireLive Innovation Awards 2023, held at the National Space Centre, in Leicester.

Each year the flagship awards seek to celebrate the very best technology, services, digital advances, and creative thinking that the region has to offer.

As a Headline Sponsor, our CEO Tim Brady was delighted to present the Innovation in Med-Tech & Life Sciences Award on behalf of Morningside.

Medicines and technology discovered in our region are helping disabled people around their homes, and tech used in operating theatres and hospitals.

The judges were looking for innovators whose ideas have made an impact nationally and internationally, but also people making small changes that are making their businesses more competitive, productive, and profitable.

This award is particularly special for Morningside because we’re immensely proud of our rich history of launching a wide-range of new niche generic molecules, which offer new novel ways for patients to take their medicine.

We’re also proud to be based in Loughborough, near to the UK’s first Life Sciences Opportunities Zone (Charnwood Campus), which demonstrates the county’s rich heritage, as a national leader in Life Sciences.  


Morningside Arena Named Sponsorship

Morningside Arena, Leicester

Morningside Pharmaceuticals’ naming-rights arrangement with the Leicester Arena is our most ambitious sponsorship endeavour to-date.

The 3,000 capacity in-door stadium and sports facility, which is home to UK basketball champions the Leicester Riders, has been officially renamed Morningside Arena, Leicester.

The venue also stages premium sports events like international boxing matches, comedy performances from the likes of Bill Bailey and music concerts which cater for every taste.

But for Morningside Pharmaceuticals, the arena is about far more than just having our name associated with an iconic Leicester building. We want to give back to the community, so as part of the deal we are able to offer space in the arena to charities, good causes and community groups to use free of charge.

At the naming ceremony, our Chief Executive Dr Nik Kotecha OBE, said: “We’re committed to making a difference to our local community and the arena is a superb new facility for the city, the county and for the East Midlands.

“Through this partnership, we will be able to offer the venue for one day a month to local and national community projects which will be extremely valuable to all that benefit.

“We are thrilled to be making this commitment to improve the overall experience for users of the venue, and to support the use of the arena for community and charitable activities.”

Arena Director and Leicester Riders Chairman Kevin Routledge, added: “The arena and all of its partners are absolutely delighted with this naming rights sponsorship with one of Leicestershire’s great and global firms.

“We have all been working very hard to put the Arena on the sporting and entertainment map, as a flexible high-class arena, without losing our community focus, and working with Morningside Pharmaceuticals will be hugely beneficial to our strategy.”

Leicester Arena was opened in January 2016 as part of a collaboration between the basketball club, Leicester College and Leicester City Council.
