This year ABPCO also added Innovation and CSR Awards: the Innovation Awards will be announced at the ceremony, whilst the shortlist for the CSR Award is comprised of P&J Live, Visit Belfast and EICC.
The winners of the 2021 ABPCO Excellence Awards will be revealed on 9 December 2021 at ExCeL during an in-person event that will mark the end of ABPCO’s week-long Festival of Learning. Shortlisted candidates have been selected by an independent panel of judges, but the winners will be selected following delegate judging prior to the awards. Details for the voting process will be sent to the registered delegates prior to the event.
For 2021, the Excellence Awards mark a celebratory conclusion to ABPCO’s Festival of Learning. The Festival will see a wide range of industry experts delivering relevant content to a global audience of Association Event Professionals over seven days.
