The Queen Elizabeth II Centre (QEIICC), London’s premier purpose built conference centre is proud to support the Commercial Conference Sector by announcing its headline sponsorship of the Conference Awards 2011.
The Conference Awards was launched in 2010 and is open to everyone who is involved in organising commercial conferences and events which generate revenue either through delegate fees or sponsorship.
Sue Etherington, Commercial Director, The QEIICC said: “The Conference Awards is the only such event for the commercial conference and events industry. Over 15 percent of events held at The QEIICC last year were commercial conferences, and we estimate that they brought over £1 million to the Centre, so it is a significant sector for us. This area is an important, but often overlooked part of our industry – the existing awards, publications and associations have tended to focus on corporate and association events. We are fully behind these important awards which bring unparalleled recognition for the teams and individuals behind these key events.”
The deadline for entering The Conference Awards is 25th February and the Award Ceremony will take place on Friday 1st July 2011. For more information please go to www.conferenceawards.co.uk.
