Early bird deadline extended for C&IT Awards

It’s the tenth anniversary of the C&IT awards, and a chance to celebrate your best work from the last year.

We have extended the early bird discount deadline for entries to the C&IT Awards 2020 to 23 June.

This year marks the tenth anniversary of the prestigious C&IT Awards, in partnership with Business Events Australia, and despite difficult times for the MICE industry we want to recognise and celebrate your creativity over the last year.

C&IT’s editor, Calum Di Lieto, says: “In difficult circumstances, we show our true colours, and it’s safe to say that our industry has really shone through.

“We’ve seen venues transforming themselves into hospitals, hotels homing the homeless and event planners coming together from across the world to support each other through these difficult times. It is these positives that we should be celebrating.”

As well as all of our usual categories, this year we have also introduced two new categories to highlight the admirable ways in which the industry has responded to the coronavirus crisis:

  • Creative solution to coronavirus
  • Humanitarian response to coronavirus

To put forward your most inspiring events and promote the people behind them, download the entry kit.

Early bird deadline: 23 June
Early bird price: £290

The winners will be chosen by an independent panel of judges and announced on 11 September.

You can also find further information on the awards and all of the entry requirements.
