The Excellence Awards winners were chosen through a combination of audience voting and judges marking:
Industry and Partner recognition Awards were received by: ACC Liverpool, Shocklogic and EventsAIR. In light of the high quality of their submissions, PLSA, Alzheimer’s, Fitwise and KC Jones Conference&Events were also recognised for their excellence.
The final day of the Festival of Learning and Excellence Awards was attended by more than 100 people at ExCeL London with many more members joining online. The headline sponsor throughout the whole Festival was GES. Other sponsors and partners were: ExCeL London, Anna Valley, ACC Liverpool, EventsAIR, JL Live, The Meetings Show and Outsourced Events.
ABPCO chair, Barbara Calderwood welcomed the delegates and thanked the speakers and sponsors onsite saying: “It is wonderful to finally be face to face. Hybrid events are now a part of our everyday so it was only right that we bring that to the ABPCO Festival demonstrating best practice to our members.”
ABPCO chair Michael Smith concludes: “Unfortunately I tested positive for COVID just before the final day so was unable to attend. However, it made little difference as the content was flawlessly shared throughout the online portal.”
