The deadline for entries into the Events Awards has been extended due to pleas from industry professionals to provide extra time.
According to Event Magazine, the deadline for entries into the awards now stands at Friday June 10th, offering an extension of around 15 days.
This is the second time the event’s organisers have extended the deadline, Events Secrets confirmed, as a day was added originally to “accommodate a special entry.”
Despite the organisers being behind the extension, those that do submit an entry now will still be subjected to a penalty fine – given that the original deadline was Thursday May 26th.
The Events Awards are being held by Event Magazine, whose writer, Jeremy King, spoke out regarding the upcoming awards ceremony. He said: “Having reshaped the categories to reflect the ever-evolving industry this year’s awards are set to be the best yet, with a record number of entries.”
Professionals throughout the UK’s event spaces and conference centres may be delighted at the news, as it will give them an extra chance to get their entry in front of the judges.
The judges reportedly include “representatives from brands including British Airways, Nike, Vodafone and Red Bull”, and the panel has been described as being “of the highest calibre.”
