Time is ticking. Today is your final chance to enter The Event Production Awards.

Yes, this means you are reaching the Final Hours to craft a (hopefully winning) entry to the most prestigious  awards our industry can muster. Check out the categories below, as well as the elite judging panel.

The Event Production Awards 2020 is preparing for its biggest ever year. The awards, which recognise excellence in the delivery and production of live events, will take place at Novotel London West on 5 March, 2020.

Duncan Siegle, the Event Production Awards’ event director and publishing director of Access’ publisher Mash Media, is reporting record entries: “These awards are an important part of the calendar for the outdoor and live events industry and this is reflected in the number of companies who enter and attend the event.  This year the entry process is much simpler as we have employed the team and software of Evessio to run the programme. Feedback on the 2019 event was tremendous and we know this year will be an even greater event”

The event will welcome more than 500 event professionals involved in the curation and delivery of outdoor and live events from festival and event organisers, to production teams, agencies and suppliers.
