Following a summer hosting the Commonwealth Games, Birmingham will welcome the 9th edition of the ABPCO Excellence Awards.
The 2022 ABPCO Excellence Awards will take place on 9 December 2022 at Birmingham ICC, supported by the West Midlands Growth Company.
This year’s awards will see an increase in categories as well as an opportunity for non-members to enter the awards for the first time.
The Awards, which will take place over a lunch ceremony, will be preceded by educational sessions in the morning as well as an evening networking event on 8 December.
Association director, Heather Lishman said: “Birmingham is a fantastic location for our awards, particularly so soon after its hosting of the Commonwealth Games. We are grateful to the ICC team as well as the West Midlands Growth Company for their support and sponsorship of the event, which will showcase all the city has to offer. Located in the heart of the UK, Birmingham is accessible to all our members and we look forward to welcoming them as well as non-members for our annual celebration of success this December.”
Donna Cunningham, conventions sales director, NEC Group, said: “This is a fantastic year for Birmingham and the perfect moment to welcome ABPCO members, clients and industry colleagues to our city. As the events sector bounces back, we look forward to coming together to celebrate excellence at the awards. We are proud to highlight Birmingham as a vibrant, exciting and connected city ready to host association conferences and events.”
