Event awards date announced for London

The Eventia Awards 2011 are to be held at a London function venue on Friday 18th November, Event Industry News reports.

The awards ceremony recognises excellence across the events sector and its independent judging panel is made up of industry leaders and event experts.

It is easily one of the most highly anticipated events in the industry calendar, as it is hosted by the trade body for events and live marketing in the UK.

The panel will have the hard task of sifting through all the high quality meeting venues, event spaces and conference centres, that run up-and-down the country.

However, Eventia are extremely experienced hosts having run the awards for over 20 years in various different forms.

According to Meetings Review, Mark Saxby, Eventia Chairman said: “The Eventia Awards have always been considered the ones to win – there is no better accolade in the industry.”

“The Awards Ceremony itself is the biggest showcase for the association in the calendar and provides an unparalleled opportunity for members to network as well as demonstrate the value of their work to clients.”

Last year the ceremony had record attendance levels of more than 850 people. Entries for all categories this year will be open from early May, with a deadline of Tuesday 2nd August 2011.
