Timed to coincide with the Association of British Professional Conference Organisers’ (ABPCO) Chairman’s Lunch, in London, on the 7th November, nominations are now open for the inaugural ABPCO Excellence Awards in the following categories:
Best conference by an in-house conference organiser
Best conference by an agency conference organiser
Best supplier partner
“ABPCO members already undergo a rigorous assessment process to join the association. However, the Board wanted to reward the professionalism and dedication of our membership by celebrating those individuals and events that truly stand out,” said Jennifer Jenkins, Chair of ABPCO. “In particular we wanted to identify the winners through an unique process that includes peer review. Therefore, in the ethos of sharing best practice and celebrating excellence, an independent panel will select three short-listed candidates to present their submission at the awards lunch prior to voting amongst their peers.”
The awards are for ABPCO members only, and are free to enter. Submissions should be e-mailed to email@example.com no later than 27th June 2014. Any events that are used in the evidence submission need to have taken place between the 1st Jan 2013 and 27th June 2014.
Submissions should include:
The size and scope of the conference and what makes it worthy of recognition.
Any specific innovation in respect of marketing, content, format, programme, presentation or technology.
The impact of the conference on the association and the member and delegate communities in attendance.
