The National Outdoor Events Association Awards go live today as the organisation looks to reward those events and businesses that have excelled as the industry moves out of the pandemic.
The Awards will take place at the beautiful Bath Pump Rooms and Roman Baths on the evening of the 23rd November this year and will be preceded by the association’s annual convention. NOEA will use the occasion to continue to underline its long-term strategy to support the industry #BuildBackBetter, and recognising the contribution of businesses to the industry, as well as the wider public, is a key part of this strategy.
The Awards will reflect the new tone of optimism within the industry, but also show understanding of the continued pressure on events and event suppliers. Award categories will include specific recognition for those businesses that have fought for the wider industry throughout and since the pandemic.
