Exhibition News Awards 2021
The EN Awards has been moved to 18th June, organisers Mash Media has confirmed.
With the national lockdown likely to be in place until Easter, organisers are confident that the successful roll out of the Covid-19 vaccine will herald a desire for a party atmosphere in the summer.
The event will take place at Evolution London in Battersea and all tickets already purchased remain valid.
Duncan Siegle, the event’s director, said the excitement of running the EN Awards in the summer was palpable.“There is no denying the economic landscape remains deeply frustrating for the exhibitions industry,” he said. “Since tighter lockdown measures were introduced before Christmas, we have been working hard with our partners on how best to get the EN Awards going, but we absolutely will not settle for a sub-par experience. There is a real buzz at Mash Media about making this event the best yet.
“The EN Awards is all about celebrating excellence, and we know that the industry wants to come back with a bang, so we will be going all-out on making these awards the best yet. Most of us haven’t seen each other for nearly a year now, so when we are able to get together, there is no doubt we won’t be taking it for granted. Thank you to the industry for your patience, it will be worth it.”
The shortlist for the EN Awards was revealed in December. View it here.
Siegle went on to praise the venue and partners for their support. He said: “The team at Evolution London have been fantastic. It has been a real partnership between us to mitigate the delay. Event Guides and Visions have also put in a lot of time and effort, and I’m in no doubt the collaboration will result in an event to remember. “
We are looking forward to being one of the first events back on the calendar, so make a note in your diary.”
More information about the EN Award will be released in the coming weeks.
