Tarsus Group chairman Neville Buch led the list of winners from this year’s Association of Event Organisers (AEO) Awards on 6 July.
 
The former Blenheim executive chairman, who joined Tarsus as part of its launch in 1998, was honoured for his contribution to the exhibition industry and, in particular, his international achievements, win the Outstanding Contribution to the Industry Award.
 
The AEO claimed this year’s Excellence Awards at the Artillery Gardens at the HAC in London attracted 1,000 representatives from the industry. The event was hosted by British actor and comedian Stephen Mangan.
