I’m pleased that the London Hilton on Park Lane will be our venue partner again, as the partnership with the hotel has worked so well for us in previous years.
I’m also very excited to announced that Meet In Ireland and Dublin Convention Bureau will be our headline sponsors this year which means there is certainly going to be some great craic.
Furthermore, there have been a few changes to the categories this year. It’s C&IT’s aim to bring together event planners from agencies, corporates and associations across everything we do, and so we’ve introduced more awards for each of these audiences to enter. Including ‘Corporate Events Team of the Year’ and ‘Association Events Team of the Year’, to supplement the prestigious Agency of the Year accolades.
There’s also a few new awards in other categories such as Celebratory Event of the Year - because why shouldn’t there be an award for awards?
Finally, and something I am most excited about, we’ve decided to incorporate our industry-respected annual list of 35 event planners under 35 - The C&IT A-List - and recognise the young individual whose story is most impressive as A-Lister of the Year.
I really can’t wait for what promises to be a fantastic night and so I hope you will join us on Friday 21 September 2018 in recognising the industry’s success.
If you’d like to enter for an award, the final deadline is Thursday 12 July.
