We often ask people why they enter the Event Awards. Of course the answer is different for everyone. Some are looking for recognition for their hard-working team, others for feedback from the panel of independent experts and everyone talks about the value of the marketing platform offered by finalist status (or, of course, a win). Other reasons often include the opportunity for some self-reflection on best practices, a bit of internal marketing or the collegiality and networking of the Awards Night filled with all the industry players and the exciting air of celebration of our great industry.
Lets Do It!
Whatever your reason, we've worked hard to make the process of entering the Event Awards as simple, risk-free and cost-effective as possible. The judges make sure that the process is fair and robust and all the rules and regulations are published online for an open and transparent approach. Remember that if you enter the Event Awards and don't make it through to finalist stage, you still get judges feedback and no one will ever know you entered.
You don't have much to lose, but there's a lot to gain so grab a cup of tea, click the link below and make a start - it will be worth it.
