Publisher Mash Media, the organiser of the EN Awards, has announced the launch of EN Elite Awards (ENEAs). This new industry accolade has been developed, in response to industry feedback, to offer the supplier market an award of its own.
EN sales director Johnno Gordon, in close collaboration with a small team from Mash Media, decided it was time to give something back to those who have contributed so much to the industry over the years without a huge amount of recognition.
“We hope to honour those members of the industry who perhaps don’t get to attend the glitz of the EN Awards or other industry functions,” Gordon explained. “We wanted to show everyone from the industry that they are as valued as anyone else, whether a well-known organiser or venue head, those who will be judging the ENEAs, or those who collect supplier awards on the night. It takes an awful lot to make this wonderful industry tick and it is time to recognise that.”
The inaugural EN Elite Awards is dedicated to those who supply the events sector, and will celebrate all that is great about the industry and the invaluable work that contractors do.
The first edition of the ENEAs will take place in The Porter Tun at The Brewery, London, on Wednesday 20 December 2017.
There will be 19 awards in total covering people, teams and companies, as well as the Unsung Hero Award. The closing date for entries is 27 October 2017.
