The reaction

Sarah Austin, Awards Director of, commented:

“It’s one thing to be recognised for by one awards body, but it is quite another to be shortlisted for two awards in the space of a week! We are absolutely thrilled that our hard work and dedication to delivering world-leading business events is being recognised on such a significant scale. But much more than that, we are incredibly proud.

“Once again, it feels like a special time to be involved in the events industry, with a very real phoenix-from-the-ashes theme reinvigorating the lifeblood of all that we do. We cannot wait to celebrate the successes of our shortlisted competition and the rest of the attendees at the AEO Excellence Awards in -June .”
