Industry torchbearers honoured at biggest ever Exhibition News Awards

RESIZED Rufus Hound

The 2010 Exhibition News Awards took place at the Lancaster London hotel on Friday 7 May, bringing the UK and international exhibition community together to celebrate the industry’s finest achievements of the past year.

Acclaimed comedian Rufus Hound, star of TV’s Argumental and Celebrity Juice, and perhaps best known for dressing up as Cheryl Cole and dancing to Fight For This Love at 2010's Let's Dance for Sport Relief, kicked off the event with a scorching stand-up routine, before settling into his duties as master of ceremonies.

This year’s Black Tie event, attended by over 500 guests, had a stronger international flavour than ever before, with guests and nominees from Singapore, Poland and Russia among those vying for honours. The bar was also set higher than ever, with over 15 entries in several categories and a massive 39 per cent increase nominations. The EN voting system has always been ahead of the political process and there was a near quadrupling of readers’ votes, the ultimate democratic decider of who picked up the accolades.

With three shortlisted candidates fighting it out in each category, this year’s winners were:

Award 1 – Most Impressive Visitor Experience:

Award 2 – Best Venue Support:
