The miaList 2014 finalists revealed

The meetings industry association (mia) has unveiled a list of 23 finalists for the association’s miaList 2014.

The award winners will be revealed at the miaList Celebratory Lunch on 7 April 2014 at Church House Conference Centre.

Jane Longhurst, mia Chief Executive, says: “The miaList is an opportunity to say ‘Thank you’ to the amazing people that make our industry a success, so I am delighted that the standard for the miaList 2014 has been high. We have received nominations from many worthy candidates and I congratulate them all. We now look to meeting the finalists in order to create the miaList 2014.”

The process to find the final miaList 2014 will now move to the candidate interviews stage. In January, the judges will meet the finalists during two group lunches, one held at Furniture Makers Hall, London, and the other at Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester. Video interviews with each candidate will be conducted and reviewed by the judges to determine the final miaList 2014.
