The EN Awards are over for another year. Awards were won, achievements were recognised and booze was drunk, not necessarily in that order.

 

Early last night (30 March) event profs from around the UK and the world donned their party frocks and tuxes for a night dedicated to the very best the exhibition industry has to offer.

 

ExCeL London kindly hosted the awards for 2017, and ably accommodated the more than 1,100 guests who descended on the venue for EN’s biggest ever awards do.

 

Before event profs settled down for the delicious three course dinner, the EN Pioneer Award, chosen by the editor of EN, was awarded to industry legend Brian Wiseman for his outstanding contribution to exhibitions over his long and varied career.

 

Comedian Joel Dommett kicked off the awards after dinner, giving out 22 gongs to winners across three categories. From Best Newcomer to Best Venue Over 8,000sqm and Best Trade Show, the awards covered the length and breadth of the industry.

 

After the awards, it was party time! (Although many guests were well on their way at that point) Cue bad dancing, even worse singing, and a whole lotta fun.

 

The team at EN would like to thank all of our event sponsors and partners – particularly our headline sponsors Freeman, LiveBuzz, Creative Hire and Feathr – and also the event profs who joined us at the awards, we hope you all had as much fun as we did, and we’re already looking forward to an even bigger and better event in 2018!
