Leading agencies line up to sponsor event industry’s biggest awards programme

Voting for M&IT Awards 2017 opens with big name sponsors on board

The UK’s leading event agencies have confirmed their sponsorship of the 2017 M&IT Industry Awards Dinner – the event industry’s biggest recognition scheme and the only one independently audited by the Audit Bureau of Circulations (ABC). Online voting for suppliers opened last week.

Top agency brands including Zibrant, MCI UK, drp, BI Worldwide, Grass Roots, Ashfield Meetings & Events and Noble Events have added their names to the roll call of sponsors, together with other top brands such as Melia Hotels International, 2M2C/Montreux-Vevey Tourisme, Virgin Atlantic, CentrEd at ExCeL London, The Meetings Show, Davies Tanner, Barbican, Euromic and SIV Events.

Online voting for suppliers opened last week with the chance to win a five-day trip to Vietnam including business class flights provided by Qatar Airways and a cruise on the Mekong Delta aboard l’Amant. The trip will also include roundtrip airport transfers from Tan Son Nhat, three nights at the five-star Reverie Saigon and a one-day Saigon city tour.

The M&IT Industry Awards will again take place at Battersea Evolution, one of London’s biggest specialist event venues where 1500 people can dine and party in luxury.

This year’s event was described as “a fabulous event not to be missed” by Louisa Gilbert of Five Hats International while Paul Ratcliffe of Conference Contacts called it “the best networking event in the MICE annual calendar.”
