Conference Awards 2016

Bringing home the silverware!

Despite narrowly missing out on the top spot, we were delighted to be awarded a Mark of Excellence for our work on Heineken’s Sales and Marketing Conference at the Global Conference Network’s annual Conference Awards last month. The awards were held at Tobacco Dock in the heart of London’s enterprise zone and was hosted by comedians Stephen K Amos and Pippa Evans who announced the winners after a three-course lunch and a very funny stand up performance.

Now in their 7th year, the awards have become some of the most coveted in the industry and recognise and reward excellence for events and teams across the globe. With over 600 event professionals in attendance the level of competition was extremely high. Tristan Norman, Sales and Marketing Director commented, “We’re over the moon to have been awarded the Mark of Excellence for the ‘Best Conference by an Events Agency’. We were in a tough category up against the likes of Wonder, Crown, BrandFuel and Banks Sadler. It’s fantastic that our work has been recognised and rewarded amongst such tough competition”.

Andy Ashley, Managing Director also said, “It’s been a great year for us to date delivering over 150 inspiring and innovative events. This award is fantastic! It’s well-deserved recognition for the team, and as we look ahead to another busy few months, it shows that all the hard work really
does pay off!”.

The judges’ commented, “I like the way the event was truly immersive and the team considered feedback from previous events using innovative solutions to overcome some challenging obstacles in a highly demanding environment”. They also said, “The entry indicated there was a level of creativity and innovation in the delivery of the event with both the pub styled conference and the “Hfest” festival experience. I liked the fact they created a dynamic stage to suit different presenting styles, added interactivity on the website for delegates to ask questions and provide space for each brand to have a unique activation set. Their survey of delegates indicates success with 90% of the audience stating they felt the event put customers at the heart of the conference”
