Why Enter?

There are so many terrific reasons for entering awards. Not only do you get to enjoy an entertaining evening with your team, but the benefits of winning or even being shortlisted alone are worth parting with your cash!

So let’s look at the key reasons you should enter:
  • Raise your company or individual profile.
  • Make you stand out in a competitive market place.
  • Help you attract new business.
  • Prove you’re delivering the best possible product for your clients and to reassure your clients you are the best company for the job.
  • Showcase your event portfolio to clients, potential clients and peers.
  • Have your work judged and externally benchmarked by leading professionals in the business.
  • Boost staff morale and reward individuals and teams for their hard work.
  • Gain fantastic PR opportunities.

Being an Award winning agency / company / individual has obvious benefits. But why enter the C&IT Awards in particular?

Put simply, Conference & Incentive Travel (C&IT) is the UK’s leading brand for the MICE industry and the C&IT Awards are the premier awards in the sector. Alignment with, and recognition from C&IT via the Awards is an external benchmark worth having.

Winning a C&IT Award is more than just a one night celebration...

All winners will receive 'in the spotlight' coverage post-event. Every month 2 winners will feature on CITmagazine.com.

Some winners will have the opportunity to speak at various other events throughout the following year, including:

The Grand Prix winner will be guaranteed a spot on the judging panel for the following year.

And when you consider each of the finalists and winners will be covered both digitally and in print following the Awards presentation & dinner across C&IT’s unrivalled portfolio which includes a monthly print title circulated to more than 18,500 agency / corporate event planners and a leading website that averages 100,000 page impressions each month the PR opportunities alone make it worth entering.


“We were incredibly proud to be named winners of the ‘Best Use of a Small Budget’ at the C&IT Awards 2016. It was the first time that we’d entered and we were delighted that the judges recognised our work. Our entry was for Skipton Direct Festival for Skipton Building Society, we worked within a restricted budget, to create an event that was imaginative and achieved the organisation’s objectives to increase colleague engagement. It was such a success that it has become an annual event.” 
Alison Reid, Marketing & PR Manager, Simply Better Events
