The Scottish Events Awards is now in it fourth year and the deadline for entry has been extended for those companies and organisations still keen to enter the event, which spans categories such as Best Conference, Best Corporate Event, Best Product Launch, Best In-House Event, Best International Event and many more.
The Scottish Event Awards have also been bolstered this year with a new corporate sponsors coming on board to support the growing awards event.

Managing Director of Freshwater Scotland, Robyn Glynne-Percy, explained why the agency is supporting the Scottish Event Awards this year.
