Business Events Australia is the headline partner for 2019 C&IT Awards

The most prestigious awards night in the MICE industry calendar will return to London Hilton Park Lane on Friday 20 September.

C&IT is excited to have Business Events Australia as its headline partner for the 2019 C&IT Awards.

The awards are returning to London Hilton Park Lane on Friday 20 September for a night celebrating outstanding achievements in the events industry.

Penny Lion, executive general manager of events for Tourism Australia said, "We’re thrilled to be the headline partner of the C&IT Awards, which recognises the great work of the events industry in the UK.

"Having spent my entire career in the events industry, including a number of years in the UK, I understand the challenges the industry faces. 

"I want to wish all the participants in the 2019 C&IT Awards good luck, and we hope to welcome you to Australia soon," Lion said. 

This year there are 24 categories for agencies, associations and corporates, plus the A-Lister of the Year and Grand Prix prize. 

We've had an exceptional number of entries and the judging process is now under way. Keep an eye out for the announcement of the awards shortlist at the end of July. 

"It’s a night not to be missed, the energy and atmosphere are second-to-none," said Calum Di Lieto, editor of C&IT Magazine. "So make sure you're there and save the date!"

And you can of course buy your tickets for the awards here.
