The NEC has been confirmed as the main partner for the inaugural CN Agency Awards, which is due to take place in early 2018.

NEC marketing director, Martin Clarke said: “As one of Europe’s leading exhibition and event centres, it’s important to us to be involved in these awards, and to be the headline sponsor is a real honour. There is so much talent within the events industry, and this is a fantastic opportunity for those talented teams and individuals to be recognised on a national level.”

Event manager Simon Farnfield welcomed confirmation of the partnership, saying: “We’re thrilled to have the support of the UK’s largest dedicated events venue as the headline sponsor of our new initiative CN Agency Awards. These awards have been created to celebrate the hard work agencies undertake in our industry and having a major brand such as The NEC believing in our concept is a massive positive.”
