EN Awards 2012 company finalists revealed

en awards 2011

After lengthy deliberation, Exhibition News is pleased to announce the company finalists for our 2012 Awards.

This year, we present 10 company-based awards covering organisers, venues and suppliers including our new category, Best International Launch. Competition across all of these categories was incredibly fierce and reflected the diversity and significant achievements across our industry. Those listed here as finalists should be proud of being shortlisted, as there are many who have not reached this stage.

Given the high calibre of our many Best Trade Show entries, we have also made the decision to list nine finalists for this award. There are up to six finalists for all remaining categories.

We will announce the finalists in our 10 people awards on Friday 10 February, so stay tuned for those details. The Exhibition News team would also like to send a special thanks to all those who entered for their efforts and for taking the time to compile such comprehensive, thoughtful nominations.

The Exhibition News Awards 2012 will be held at Olympia’s new-look West Hall on Thursday 29 March. Ensure your place at this must-attend industry event by booking your table or tickets now using our online booking system, or by phoning our events team on: 0208 971 8265.
