Outstanding venues honoured at inaugural London Venue Awards

London Venue Awards
Venues from across the capital were honoured at the first London Venue Awards on Friday, with 320 industry professionals attending the celebratory lunch at the Emirates Stadium.
Awards were presented across 15 categories following a rigorous judging process carried out by a panel of over 30 outstanding representatives with expertise from all facets of the industry. An additional category saw employees past and present voting for the ‘Best Venue To Work For’, with the Business Design Centre emerging victorious.

The London Venue Awards are organised by the Global Conference Network (GCN), who also run industry-leading awards programmes such as the Conference Awards and Association Excellence Awards. Rory Ross Russell, Co-Director of the GCN, comments: “We were overwhelmed by the volume and quality of the entries we received for these awards. We always knew that London was full of superb venues, but this is the first time they have really been given the recognition they deserve.  

“We would like to congratulate all the winners and commiserations to those that didn’t make it – picking victors certainly wasn’t an easy process! In some categories the decision was so close that we presented ‘Marks of Excellence’ to those that didn’t quite win. I’m already looking forward to seeing what the 2016 entries have to offer.”
