The shortlist for this year’s National Outdoor Events Association Awards 2019 has been announced. The 16th annual Convention and Awards Dinner will be held in Roman Baths and Pump Rooms, Bath on November 27 and will see the very best in the industry gain recognition from the prestigious awards.
Susan Tanner, NOEA’s Chief Executive, said: “This year again saw an increase in entries, and the quality of the submissions was also very high. Because of this we had a longer finalist list, and it’s been a real challenge for our judges to decide on the three or four shortlisted in each category.”
Alistair Turner, Chair of the Judging Panel and Managing Director, EIGHT PR & Marketing, added: “The entries were again incredibly strong this year and shows our industry in really good health. We’ve been particular impressed by the increase in entries from the public sector, as well as a host of new and innovative supplier businesses.
“It is a huge achievement for those shortlisted today and we look forward to seeing who is named as winners in November.”
NOEA is the UK’s leading outdoor events trade association, representing outdoor event professionals across government, business, and through specialised areas such as policing and local government policy.
