Managing director Chris Parnham organised the event, along with his colleagues Angie Mason, Jill Fleming and Jacquie Freer. Held at Parnham’s house in London, he said the event was a way to thank loyal partners, including venues, hotels and DMCs.

Eight awards were handed out throughout the event, including Absolute Promoter, which was handed to Kai Schomann from Hotel Republic; Absolute Rock, which was scooped by Accor’s Chris Elliott; and Absolutely Fabulous, which was taken by Chewton Glen & Cliveden’s Lisa Lernoux-Dock.

Speaking about the event, Parnham said: "This is my favourite evening of the year. Our partners usually do the hosting and we agencies benefit so much from their hospitality – this is our chance to host them, and treat them to an evening on us. Hosting the evening at my home makes it feel more personal, and I hope my guests appreciate the personal touch. When else will you see Angie serving canapés, Jacquie pouring Champagne, me taking coats and Jill clearing glasses?"
