Nominations for London Venue Awards open

Entries for London Venue Awards are open with submissions expected to reach an all-time high. Now in their third year, the awards have become a benchmark of best practice, excellence and exceptional quality for the capital’s meeting, conference and event spaces.

The nineteen award categories encompass all facets that make up exemplary meetings and events; from best catering at a venue and venue with the best customer service through to best sporting venue and best unusual venue in the capital.

Organised by GCN Events, The London Venue Awards are judged by a panel of respected event specialists including Tracy Halliwell, Director of Business Tourism & Major Events, London & Partners; David Pegler, CEO, Excel London; Carla Jones, Head of Event Strategy, Operations & Client Services, Haymarket Media Group and Steve Sayer, Commercial Director, The O2. Submissions are due by 16th June and those shortlisted will be notified in August 2017, in readiness for the awards ceremony on 20th October.

Past winners include: Keith Prowse (Best Corporate Hospitality Experience for The Gatsby Club Hospitality), One Great George Street (Best Private Dining Venue) and IET London: Savoy Place (Best New or Refurbished Venue). 

2016 winner, Liz Young, head of events at Historic Royal Palaces commented “Hampton Court Palace scooped Best Private Party Venue and, in doing so, it has really helped underline the venue’s quality and attention to detail. This in turn has led to greater demand from the private client market. The awards really do put a spotlight on the capital’s bustling and vibrant event scene’ One of 2017’s judges Jonathan Read, commercial director at Tobacco Dock, adds “London sets the pace for emerging trends and best practice, so it’s fantastic to have a ceremony that acknowledges the hard work and creativity our peers are putting in to ensure London is a top choice for the global event planner.”

Rory Ross Russell, founder & director of GCN Events said “The London Venue Awards have gone from strength to strength and are increasingly recognised as a definitive stamp of quality and assurance. The ceremony in October brings the whole of the industry together to celebrate and share the very best in this lively industry.”
