The A List, which celebrates 35 rising stars in the events industry under the age of 35, will launch tonight at The Ned, a brand new hotel and club in the city of London, in partnership with Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board (L.A. Tourism).
Now in its ninth year, the annual C&IT A List sets out to recognise the rising talent among the top UK event agencies, with Banks Sadler, Top Banana, WRG, George P Johnson and drp among those nominating future leaders.
L.A. Tourism is premium partner for the A List for the first time, and to coincide with its launch, the destination is hosting a four-day sales mission in London this week.
Last year's C&IT A List launch took place at the Leadenhall Building’s Landing Forty Two following a photoshoot of the 35 nominees at venue. See pictures from last year’s A List launch event here.
In November 2017, L.A. Tourism will host an exclusive FAM trip for a small number of the A List. With limited spaces, the stars will be invited to experience Los Angeles firsthand and will be hosted at the American Music Awards. The group will have the opportunity to meet with top L.A. partners, discover unique venues and explore the array of region-specific diverse product on offer in the city.
