Event director of the Festival Supplier Awards, Michelle Tayton said: “The feedback we received for last year’s awards was overwhelmingly positive so it is exciting to be starting the process again for 2017. We believe that we’ve found a winning formula that the industry likes – niche categories, impressive judging panel, great format, excellent venue and the perfect date. We’re confident that the awards will continue to go from strength to strength.”
