The countdown timer has run out. After weeks of companies submitting award entries and sweating over it, there is just one thing left to do before the big night: Announce the shortlist.

 

“I can safely say that this year, the EN team and I had the toughest job yet shortlisting the categories,” said EN editor Annie Byrne.

 

“We laughed. We cried. We debated, and finally we came to a decision. I would like to thank everyone who entered. The number of entries submitted for the 2017 awards was incredible, and it’s fantastic to be reminded of how hard the exhibition industry works.

 

“I look forward to seeing you all on the big night!”

 

The 11th annual EN Awards will be held at ExCeL London on 30 March 2017, as part of a gala dinner, with 23 awards recognising both individuals and companies that have made an exceptional contribution to exhibitions in the past 12 months.
