  • As the big award of the night, we couldn’t leave this one out – even if hotels have been hosting fewer events this year. Whether it’s for their community work or for staying open as key worker hotels, or simply for the way they have stayed in touch during Covid-19, it’s time to pick a favourite.
  • Chances are you haven’t used an overseas hotel in person in the last year. So now, more than ever, they need your support – and what better way to show it than by voting for them? Whether it’s the way they’ve kept in touch, their social media posts or the charity initiative they’ve got stuck into during tough times, there’s still plenty to praise.
  • Whether it’s down to their work operating as NHS Nightingales or their efforts to bang the drum for events by getting Covid-secure, UK conference centres have had a very different 12 months to normal. Show your support for a standout venue.
  • All over the world, conference centres have stepped up to the Covid-19 challenge in different ways, from introducing pioneering tech solutions to keeping clients engaged through innovative social media and marketing campaigns. Make sure your favourite gets recognized.
  • For most production companies, AV firms, team building companies and F&B suppliers it’s been a year of transition – whether a show of support or recognition of a job well done we want to know your pick.
  • Venues have been implementing countless tech solutions during Covid – who has recognised the challenge to live events during the pandemic and stepped up to the plate with an innovative use of tech with its clients? Is there a hybrid studio you can’t wait to get your hands on when restrictions are lifted? It’s time to reward the venues that have gone the extra tech mile.
  • Smaller agencies have had it tougher than most in 2020 – with all in-person events disappearing, the pivot to virtual has been challenging to say the least. Who hit the ground running and won hearts and minds this year?
  • Even in these tough times, larger agencies are still working, still keeping in touch with clients, still putting on virtual and in-person events – and all the while pivoting to stay relevant. Show your appreciation for all their hard work.
  • The country’s convention bureaux have been pivoting to hybrid, keeping in touch with clients, providing coronavirus advice, working with venues. Who’s caught your eye this year?
  • Overseas convention bureau have been up against it with the UK market in the current circumstances – but that hasn’t deterred them from still doing the best they can to shout about all their destination and its venues have to offer.
  • All those venues that fall outside the hotel or conference centre boxes – this year they’ve had to think outside the box. And how they’ve responded. In these changing times, who’s stood out from the crowd?
  • Open to the whole industry, which company or individual has responded best to a unique situation this year? Whether it’s a human response to the crisis, lightning-fast business pivot or charity initiative, we want to know who’s impressed you in the toughest of circumstances.
