On Thursday night (8 October), C&IT secured its biggest awards haul yet at the Business Travel Journalism Awards, organised by CWT and held at The Magazine Restaurant at Serpentine Sackler Gallery in Kensington Gardens. The journalists enjoyed a Champagne reception in the gallery, before heading to the restaurant for a three-course meal and the awards ceremony.

C&IT cleaned up on the awards, with associate editor Susie Harwood taking home the Meetings & Events Journalist of the Year award and the Journalists' Journalist of the Year award. Editor-in-chief Yasmin Arrigo was named Editor of the Year for a record third time, while senior reporter Jack Carter took the Technology features journalist of the year title.

Also on Thursday, Keith Prowse Live took place at London’s Somerset House. Event professionals gathered for an evening of cocktails, Michelin-starred food and the chance to meet some sporting legends. Keith Prowse addressed hot hospitality topics and key diary dates for 2016 whilst clarifying the terms 'official', 'rights holders', 'innovation' and what it means to be 'world class'. The evening also offered the chance to network with representatives from some of the UK’s most iconic venues. 

On Tuesday night (6 October) the meetings industry gathered at 133-135 Bethnal Green Road in Shoreditch to explore Berlin as a destination at the first ever Berlin pop-up store in London. Attendees enjoyed themed food and drink and live entertainment while meeting representatives from the German capital city.
