Across the world, recognition has never been more important than it is now in the current landscape.
Externally, recognition provides a competitive advantage when trying to secure clients or even prospective employees whilst at the same time providing a great form of benchmarking against your peers. Internally, it creates a feeling of pride and collaboration that not only boosts morale but also fosters a stronger sense of belonging - a perfect way to retain and recognise employees.
The prestige and emotional connection to our awards comes hand-in-hand with our high level of integrity. We are often referred to as THE accolade to obtain in the MICE industry. This is because the C&IT Awards are judged by an even split of event professionals from regional and global event companies, corporate event planners and industry associations that come together to discuss, and often debate, the entries put forward.
And so, winners can truly have a sense of pride when they are recognised for their outstanding achievements and creativity by the most engaging brand in the MICE industry.
