The 400-strong crowd enjoyed fabulous hospitality in the glamorous surrounds of The Dorchester, with the awards ceremony co-hosted by emcee Neil Hudson-Basing and comedian Eshaan Akbar, followed by entertainment by the brilliant Girls That Mix.
Attendees bought raffle tickets to raise money for industry charity Meeting Needs, raising a massive £5,145.
Our theme for the evening was ‘Our People’ and we celebrated the joys and pains of the #eventprof way of life and the people who work tirelessly behind the scenes to deliver unforgettable events, which go beyond the senses and touch people’s hearts.
Thanks to our partners Conference Emcees, LUX, Speakers Corner, The Dorchester, CrowdComms, One Take Shots for helping make the event a success.
