The Association of British Professional Conference Organisers (ABPCO) has revealed the shortlist for the 2015 Excellence Awards.

• Best Conference by an In-House Conference Organiser – Diabetes UK, National Cancer Research Institute and UCAS Media
• Best Conference by an Agency Conference Organiser – MCI UK, Opening Doors & Venues and Cascade Productions Intl Ltd
• Best Industry Partnership – NewcastleGateshead Initiative, The International Convention Centre, Birmingham & Shocklogic

The Excellence Awards, which will once again coincide with the Chairmen’s Lunch, will take place at The Brighton Centre on Friday 4 December. An independent panel selected the three short-listed candidates to present their submission at the awards lunch prior to voting amongst their peers.

“We have a strong shortlist this year that represents the best that the industry has to offer,” comments Caroline Windsor, joint-chair of ABPCO. “The ABPCO Excellence Awards look to honour those that have set high standards within our industry and I’d like to congratulate all those that have been shortlisted for the awards in December.”

Last year’s winners included Shocklogic (Best Supplier Partner), UCAS (Best Conference by an In-House Conference Organiser) and Morrow Communications (Best Conference by an Agency Conference Organiser).

“Being shortlisted for the ABPCO Excellence Awards is an honour,” said Therese Dolan, Events Senior Manager at Diabetes UK. “The opportunity to present our submission is exciting because it gives us a chance to show leading industry professionals what we have achieved but the awards will also give us a chance to learn from our peers.”

Ahead of the Excellence Awards and Chairmen’s Lunch, a dinner has also been arranged which will take place the evening before in the cellars at the Old Ship Hotel. Those interested in attending the dinner or the Excellence Awards themselves should visit
