Academic Venue Awards 2019: winners announced

Imago Venues were the big winners at the Academic Venue Awards, 22 November, scooping three gongs.

The event, which took place at Victory Services Club, Marble Arch, London, provided guests with a performance of the Greatest Showman before the awards were handed out.

CN editor Martin Fullard, who compered the event, said: “I believe it’s far more impactful to recognise specific sub-sectors of our industry rather than shoehorn them into a broader awards campaign. I am assured by the judges that the calibre of entry this year was very high, certainly the comments noted specific achievements rather than just broad observations.

“One thing that was apparent was that investment reaps rewards. We know academic venues work in testing environments and face challenges which other venues do not, so to invest is a big deal as those above will want to see returns. Our winners here tonight represent what can be achieved.”

Thank you to our partners Victory Services Club, Fruit Bat Marketing, and Cubo.
