The association is calling for nominations, which close on 11 January, across three categories.

The ABPCO Award for Academic Achievement in Event Management Studies will be awarded to a student who has excelled at industry research or who has established a best-practice benchmark through a work placement; ABPCO’s One to Watch will recognise an individual who has made a strong contribution to the industry in the early stages of their career; while ABPCO’s Lifetime Achievement Award will be awarded to a person whose career has had a significant impact on the industry.

Michael Foreman, ABPCO chair, said: "We are thrilled to announce that we will be presenting three special awards to three deserving individuals on the evening of our gala dinner.

"ABPCO are very excited about the plans for our next annual conference and 2012 is shaping up to be our best conference yet. We would encourage the whole of the conferencing industry to join us on this special occasion and get a taste of the new ABPCO at the dawn of our next 25 years."

ABPCO’S annual conference will take place at London’s Barbican, with the gala dinner at St Paul’s Cathedral.
