The event management agency is to sponsor the Best Destination Management category, while VisitScotland is to repeat its headline sponsorship of the Awards - the event industry’s biggest recognition programme and awards dinner - on 26 February.

The event attracts around 1200 industry professionals to Battersea Evolution in south London, making it the industry’s number one networking event. 

VisitScotland leads a sponsor list from top brands including Ashfield Meetings & Events, Grass Roots, MCI UK, BI Worldwide, Zibrant, DRP, Noble Events, Euromic, The Meetings Show, Melia Hotels International, ExCeL London, Battersea Evolution, Smart Hospitality, FRHI Hotels & Resorts, Hawthorn, Davies Tanner, Euromic, Virgin Atlantic/Delta, Anna Valley, Montreux Music & Convention Centre, NH Hotels, SIV Events and Kerzner International. 

The event raises cash for event industry charity Meeting Needs and the 2015 dinner attracted more than 1200 attendees for an evening of networking and celebration of the best in the business. 

The M&IT Industry Awards dinner was described by Venues & Events International’s Anita Lowe as: “The best awards evening in our calendar - an awesome evening” while Friends Life’s Chris McCarthy said The M&IT Awards is: “The event that the others measure themselves against”.

M&IT publisher Steve Lewis said: “With the leading brands all sponsoring the M&IT Awards and ticket sales more than 200 ahead of the same time last year, we are expecting another record-breaking attendance in February.”
