Global Conference Network reveals winners of Conference & CVS Awards

The winners of the Conference Awards and Conference Venue & Supplier (CVS) Awards were announced at Battersea Evolution on Friday 13 June at their biggest ever ceremony.
Organised by the Global Conference Network, the event welcomed a record attendance of over 750 industry professionals to celebrate the success and innovation in the conference industry.


Hosted by Smart Hospitality, part of the Smart Group, guests were treated to a three-course meal and a sophisticated production provided by Hawthorn as the winners were presented with their awards by comedian Josh Widdicombe.

Claire Wormsley, director of the Global Conference Network, said: “We’ve had a thriving year for the conference industry and we’re delighted to see the Conference Awards grow. These awards have become the definitive recognition of the dedication and innovation that drives excellence in our sector. Congratulations to all our winners and we would also like to say a huge thank you to all our sponsors and partners for making this event possible. A special thank you should be extended to Hiscox Event Insurance who has been our sponsor from the launch of the awards in 2010 – they are a fantastic asset to our events and to the conference industry as a whole.”  

The awards also included a charity raffle in support of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, with items to be won including a dinner for four at West London’s Marco Grill and a three-night weekend stay at Center Parcs.
