Well What a Night! This is the one that we’ve been looking forward to all year, Event Magazine’s annual awards. And why were we so excited? Well Corporate Innovations were shortlisted for the inaugural ‘Event Team of the Year’ title at Event Magazine’s annual awards.
We were up against five other highly respected event agencies, and I’m delighted to advise that we came away with the top prize! What a thrilling night it was, with more than 700 industry professionals attending the 1920s-themed awards evening at Troxy, a stunning Art Deco events space in East London.
We had to wait until near the end of the awards ceremony to hear our fate. Deep down I know the event team that we have at Corporate Innovations thoroughly deserved this award, however the tension was palpable as we got closer to our category.
The Event Team of the Year is all the more prestigious as it’s not judged on just one project or our work with one client, however our overall approach towards events Entrants needed to choose up to three different events that showcased the team’s work taking into account the challenges that were faced and solved, and how the team helped enhance the success of each event. These had to be backed by evidence of success including ROI and client endorsement.
I couldn’t be more delighted. I felt very privileged joining my colleagues on the stage knowing that I represented the majority of the team that had contributed so hard towards the award win. Our team is essential to who we are as a business, why our clients like working with us and why we love working with each other and while the awards was just one night, this really has been the culmination of a lot of hard work over many months, many late nights and long weekends!
If it wasn’t for great colleagues, great projects and great clients it wouldn’t be worthwhile, however it most definitely is! Today, we’ve been sharing the success with the guys in the office; a heady cocktail of pizza carbs and bubbles! It’s fantastic when our personality, values and culture are recognised by a leading industry publication as it brings together the team to celebrate the success they have created. So, we’ve won the first Event Team of the Year title, now the work starts towards holding onto that title!!
