The nominations have been announced for the Event Production Awards, which will take place on the first day of the Event Production Show (EPS) on 26 May.

The awards recognise the outstanding work and dedication of companies and individuals throughout the past 12 months, and will for the first time include the Access All Areas Editor’s Award that will recognise an individual who has championed the live events industry throughout the pandemic.

Below is a full list of all those shortlisted. Among the nominees for the Editor’s Award are Festival Republic MD Melvin Benn, Association of Independent Festivals CEO Paul Reed, Black Deer co-founder Gill Tee, and Parklife co-founder and Night Time Economy Advisor for Greater Manchester Sacha Lord.

This year’s Event Production Awards will be a scaled down version, taking place from 5pm on The Main Stage.

EPS event director Duncan Siegle said, “Normally we would be celebrating the industry with a gala dinner reception at a London venue, but these are not normal times.  What we wanted to do this year was recognise what has been achieved and put on a bit of a party with these awards at the centre of it.  We’ll announce the winners on The Main Stage and have a few drinks to celebrate afterwards.  Please join us to celebrate the return of live events.”

When – Wednesday 26 May from 5pm

Where – The Main Stage at Event Production Show

The event is free to attend for everyone who has been in the event from 3.30pm and there will be complimentary drinks on offer from the organisers and drinks sponsor Champagne Fire Truck.

Please register in advance to attend the event here.
