Academic Venue Awards: deadline extended!

Conference News’ annual Academic Venue Awards returns for another year, and in 2019 it is proving more popular than ever with the addition of day-time conference preceding the awards evening. 

The deadline for entries has been extended to 7 October 2019.

Universities, colleges, and schools are encouraged to enter to help burnish the ever-increasing popularity of academic venues for events.

Conference News is always striving to grow the markets we serve. Academic venues are a huge part of our magazine's philosophy and hosting the Academic Venue Awards annually is our way of celebrating the impact that academic venues have on the current UK MICE landscape. As an officer within this sector of the industry, you'll know full well the different challenges that academic venues face in competing with mainstream meeting and event spaces - this event brings together the UK industry to share knowledge, progress and highlight excellence that has been achieved over the last 12 months.

The third edition of the Academic Venue Awards will take place at Victory Services Club on 22 November 2019. As an industry professional, the Academic Venue Awards and Conference 2019 is a great opportunity to network, learn and earn some valuable accreditation for the achievements that your venue has made over the last 12 months.
