As a first time sponsor of the M&IT awards, being part of the event was very rewarding. It was fantastic to see so many people from our industry together in one place, celebrating the great achievements of the year from the brands and the individuals, who have worked so hard. The event was well organised and thoroughly enjoyable – and to win the BDRC Award as the Most Recommended Hotel Brand was the icing on the cake! We plan to be back!

Technovation (CPM) Limited decided to sponsor the 2020 M&IT Awards, having last sponsored it highly successfully 10 years ago! We were not disappointed! The exposure we had to thousands of industry professionals in the lead up to the awards was very rewarding. Our on-stage presence at the awards evening was both an exciting and extremely productive occasion. I would recommend sponsorship to any organisation wanting to increase their brand visibility to the M&IT community

For the last few years we have only been too pleased to support the M&IT Awards by sponsoring the Best UK Conference Centre award. The M&IT Awards provides an excellent platform to nurture our industry partnerships. The M&IT Awards delivered yet another fantastic evening uniting 1300 event professionals in one room to recognise our industry’s fantastic achievements. Gethin Jones was an excellent compère choice, keeping the awards lively and upbeat with his tongue-in-cheek humour. As always, the M&IT Awards is a highlight in our event prof’s diaries where we can come together to meet with old friends and new, whilst celebrating the excellent talent brimming from our industry.
