Chetan Shah, micebook CEO and founder said: “It has been another incredibly hard year for the sector and in many ways harder than the year before. The winners of the V Awards 22 have demonstrated great creativity, resilience and leadership to navigate current and new challenges to once again come out stronger.
“We were honoured to have such a high calibre of judges giving credibility to the process and huge congratulations to all the winners and those that were highly commended as they would have deserved the accolades. The business events sector can be a force for good and this was demonstrated on the night.”
