    For more years than I care to remember, the editorial team at M&IT have been reporting the key events within the MICE industry.
    The reporting and writing is second to none and so it's very gratifying to see their efforts rewarded in this way.

    Congratulations on your achievements and for securing this prestigious award. Well done team M&IT
