The Association of British Professional Conference Organisers (ABPCO) has revealed the finalists for its 2018 Excellence Awards.

They are:

• Best Conference by an In-House Conference Organiser – Diabetes UK, Renewable UK and Royal Statistical Society
• Best Conference by an Agency Conference Organiser – TFI Group, Conference Collective and Conference Partners International
• Best Industry Partnership – Shocklogic, Belfast Waterfront and The Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel

This year the Excellence Awards are being hosted by the Scottish Event Campus (SEC) on Thursday 13 December and are set to coincide with the Chairmen’s Lunch. Once more, shortlisted candidates have been selected by an independent panel and winners will be decided on the day. Each entry will present their submission during the lunch prior to a final vote among their peers.

“The shortlist is particularly exciting this year," said Kate Sargent, joint-chair of ABPCO. "There was a lot of new blood entering the awards and the panel’s choice reflects that – in fact every category has two newcomers. The result is that our audience can expect to see a lot of fresh ideas and innovation brought to the stage in Glasgow.

“I offer huge congratulations to everyone who entered as the standard of entry just keeps rising every year. Scores were tight for every category, which made the shortlisting process incredibly challenging.”

Ahead of the Excellence Awards and Chairmen’s Lunch, a distillery tour and networking supper for members and attendees will take place at the Clydeside Distillery and Radisson RED on 12 December. The additional tours, transfers and dinner have been organised by Glasgow Convention Bureau.
