The 2017 Meeting Industry Marketing Awards (MIMAs) and the inaugural EVCOM Best of the Best Awards will be staged together on Friday 17 November at the Westminster Park Plaza.

This brings together the two award schemes to create one event with greater critical mass and combines the strengths of leading trade association EVCOM with CAT Publications, publishers of Meetings & Incentive Travel (M&IT) and Meetpie.com.

“This is an exciting time for the association with a completely new award scheme that is unique and targeted to all the sectors we serve,” says Andrew Smith, chairman of EVCOM.  “The incorporation of the MIMAs into EVCOM Best of the Best Awards in November will be the icing on the cake, creating a truly unique gala event.”

This year EVCOM has launched an all-new award scheme. Designed and built on the hugely successful existing formats, it will be a more focused and streamlined series of ceremonies – ‘The Screens’, ‘The Clarions’ and ‘The Lives’. The new format will maximise recognition across all of the sectors the association work in, culminating in the much anticipated EVCOM Best of the Best Awards which celebrate exactly that.

The gold winners across each of the three schemes will automatically be entered into the Best of the Best Industry Awards, plus there will be 12 categories celebrating the outstanding work in internal and external communications.

M&IT managing editor Martin Lewis said: “For more than 20 years, the MIMAs have recognised the very best of all channels that serve our industry. So to add this to EVCOM’s new and innovative award scheme will be very exciting for M&IT and the industry.”

The MIMAs are now open for entries:
