C&IT TV: C&IT Awards Judge's Corner

Three judges at the C&IT Awards discuss this year's entries and tell us what makes a stand out event.

Sam Robson, group events director UK at The Appointment Group, Sandra Fontaine, events manager at Sanofi Pasteur MSD and Alan Newton, founder and COO at Eventopedia, spoke to C&IT behind the scenes about the best events they'd judged.

You can find a full list of all the judges on the C&IT Awards panel here. 

The ceremony, which was held last Friday (23 September) at the Hilton London on Park Lane, saw Rapport come out on top, picking up four gongs including The Grand Prix for ONE Astellas Live. Smyle, Avantgarde, and Zibrant were also among the winners.
