After receiving an impressive number of entries to this brand new awards initiative, the category finalists were selected by a judging panel of 27 Chief Executives of leading associations. The winners will be announced at a ceremony hosted by The Right Honorable Michael Portillo, to be held at Queen Elizabeth II Centre on Friday 27 February, which is expected to welcome over 300 attendees.
The awards are designed to acknowledge individuals, teams, and initiatives, which strive towards excellence in serving association members of Professional and Trade Associations. Working with a selection of partners and sponsors, the Association Excellence Awards is set to be a firm fixture in the events calendar.
Claire Wormsley, managing director of the Global Conference Network, says: “We are extremely proud of the launch of Association Excellence Awards, the number and calibre of entries has been extremely high. We are delighted to recognise the hard work of all those who work in trade and professional associations and we’re looking forward to seeing everyone at the awards and to celebrate with the winners.”
The Global Conference Network (GCN) works on a number of projects including the Conference Awards and the Conference Summit and aims to provide quality information and facilitate best practices across the industry.
