UK Event Awards: ScottishPower, IAB and whynot! among finalists

Nominations for the UK Events Awards that today been revealed, with ScottishPower, IAB and whynot! among the companies who have been named finalists in multiple categories.

The nominees were judged by a panel, chaired by Richard Dodgson of Timebased Events, who had the job of assessing the record number of entries and deciding who made it through to the nominations stage.

Other nominees include Excel London, Visit Cornwall, Welcome to Yorkshire and Eventbrite, with the full list available on the UK Event Awards website.

The Drum’s event director Lynn Lester, who also was a member of the judging panel, commented: “The standard within the entry submissions this year was incredibly high, which made the judging tougher than ever. It’s great to see so many organisations and events from all over the UK getting involved in the awards and competing for the recognition they so richly deserve. It’s fair to say the past year has been excellent for the industry and that is truly reflected in this year’s nominations."

Results will be revealed Friday 28 November at this year’s black tie ceremony at the London Marriott Grosvenor Square. Tickets are on sale now.
