Last night, more than 100 event professionals headed to the City of London's hottest new hotel and club, The Ned, for the unveiling of the annual C&IT A List, celebrating the best agency talent aged 35 or under.
Rising stars from the likes of Grass Rooots M&E, Jack Morton Worldwide, Smyle, CWT M&E and Vista received a standing ovation from the room as the full 2017 A List was revealed for the first time in The Saloon, one of The Ned's event spaces.
C&IT's headline partner for this year's A List, Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board (L.A. Tourism), shared details of an exclusive FAM trip for some of this year's A Listers, taking place in November 2017, which will include being hosted at the American Music Awards.
It was then time to unveil which of the event industry's rising stars made it into this year's A List, which was revealed rapturous applause.
