Inaugural London Venue Awards announces shortlist

The first annual London Venue Awards today announces the shortlist of venues selected for their demonstration of excellence and exceptional quality across 20 categories, focusing on venue usage, customer service, catering and technology.  
The shortlist is the result of a rigorous judging process, carried out by a panel of over 30 outstanding representatives with expertise from all facets of the industry.

Organised by the Global Conference Network (GCN), who also run industry-leading awards programmes such as the Conference Awards and Association Excellence Awards, the London Venue Awards will culminate in a lunchtime ceremony on 16th October 2015 where the winners will be announced.  

Rory Ross Russell, Co-Director of the GCN, comments: “We have been delighted with the response to the London Venue Awards. The vast number of top quality venues in this great city is simply staggering and it’s high time that we honour this fact with an official award programme.  

“The members of our judging panel have been working hard to find the venues that have gone above and beyond, so I look forward to finding out who the winners will be in October.”
