C&IT is once again asking readers to nominate the city, resort or destination they feel best delivers for events, with a new UK category added for this year.

In addition to the Best Short-haul Events Destination and Best Mid- to Long-Haul Events Destination categories, we are asking readers to vote for the Best UK Events Destination.

The categories are open to all destinations and winners will be decided by C&IT readers, with votes cast both online prior to the awards ceremony and on the night. The ceremony takes place on Friday 22 September at London Hilton on Park Lane.

Rotterdam and The Hague was crowned Best Short-haul Destination at the 2016 C&IT Awards, beating off strong competition from London, Berlin and Barcelona, while New York picked up the gong for Best Mid- to Long-Haul Destination.

The categories are free to enter and destinations that want to register their interest to be on the long list, or event planners that want to nominate the destinations that delivered their best events, can do so here. The most popular destinations identified in C&IT's State of the Industry research will also feature on the long list.

The UK category is open to any events destination in the UK, the short-haul category is open to all destinations under four hours' flight time from the UK, while the mid- to long-haul category is open to destinations with a flight time of more than four hours.

The long list will be open for voting in August, with a shortlist announced in early September.

Readers can then vote on the shortlist online, with votes also cast at the awards ceremony added to these to decide the overall winners on the night.

The deadline for nominations is Friday 4th August.
