The deadline for the Event Production Awards has been extended to 9 December due to popular demand.

The awards, which take place on 1 March 2017 at Lancaster London, will celebrate the people working tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure the events industry thrives: the suppliers.

Entries have been flooding in for the 18 award categories, which include Best Technology Provider, Best Welfare Provider and the prestigious Access All Areas Editor’s Supplier of the Year award.

Taking place on the first night of the Event Production Show, which co-locates with International Confex and Office*, the awards are a chance to relax and network with current and future clients after a busy day on the exhibition floor.

Access has reached out to a diverse and industry-wide panel of event professionals to judge the awards, including Dick Tee (Enteetainment), Kaye Dunnings (Shangri-La & Glastonbury), Lee Denny (LeeFest), Dennis Mills (Major Events International) and Harry Guthrie (HG Event Production).

Tickets for the event include a drinks reception, a three-course gala dinner and entertainment. Early bird tickets are available until 15 January 2017, so don’t delay!
