The Event Production Awards (EPAs) 2024 saw 21 winners crowned on stage at indigo at The O2, across categories such as Event Production of the Year, Best Aerial Spectacular and Event Venue of the Year.

The awards on 28 February were staged after day one of the Event Production Show (EPS), which took place less than five miles away at ExCeL London.

For the first time, the AAA Legend Award was presented to two event professionals. Eat to the Beat owners Bonnie May and Mary Shelley-Smith (pictured above), who are celebrating the 40th anniversary of the company this year, were presented the award by Access All Areas content director Christopher Barrett.

“Congratulations to all the winners whose services and products hugely impressed the judges,” said Barrett.  “Clearly there is no shortage of challenges in the live events industry at present, not least high costs and the impact of a tumultuous global backdrop, but ahead of a huge summer of live events, the Event Production Awards was a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the very best our innovative and enduring industry has to offer.”
