Finalists announced for M&IT Awards 2022

Meetings / 

The finalists have been announced for the M&IT Awards 2022.

There are a total of 19 categories at this year’s awards, taking place at Evolution London on Friday 9 September.

This year sees the introduction of brand new categories including Best Incentive Provider and Diversity and Inclusion Award, plus the return of previous categories such as Best Airline and Best Hotel Brand.

M&IT editor Paul Harvey said: “I'm so excited to reveal the finalists for this year's M&IT Awards, congratulations to everyone who's been shortlisted. The M&IT Awards has held a special place in the meetings and events calendar for the past 35 years – it is no wonder people think of it as the Oscars of the industry.

“Brought to you by Northstar Meetings Group, the M&IT Awards brings together more industry professionals than any other awards event to recognise the phenomenal people that drive this wonderful industry forward.

“Food, drink, dancing, live entertainment, we have it all, but most importantly this night will give you a chance to connect with friends and colleagues and celebrate their amazing achievements."

Last year’s awards saw the industry come together in celebration of event professionals on an exciting and emotional night in London.

Outgoing Meetings Industry Association chief executive Jane Longhurst took home the Personality of the Year award, while Venues & Events International scored a double gold award win. Glasgow Convention Bureau picked up the Best UK Convention Bureau award for an incredible 15th year running, while Park Regis Birmingham scooped Best UK Hotel.
