Shortlist for the 2021 M&IT Awards revealed

The results are in and we’re excited to reveal the shortlist for this year’s glitzy M&IT Awards taking place at Battersea Evolution on Friday 8 October.

The awards will celebrate the best, most dedicated and innovative members of the ever-evolving and truly tenacious meetings and events industry.

The industry’s original and only independently audited awards will see a charismatic and highly entertaining Welsh emcee take to the stage to kick off proceedings. Guests will be treated to a delightful three-course dinner between winners being announced and the evening’s entertainment will be sure to get you all up on your feet.

Late into the evening, the dancefloor will be open to all guests wanting to shake off the exceptionally tough last 18 months and welcome a brighter future with their industry colleagues.

Don’t miss out on receiving your award in person, celebrating with your trusted suppliers or simply enjoying this unforgettable evening. Book your tickets here.
