CRN’s flagship Channel Awards event has been named the best in the business at the annual Awards Awards.
The channel’s equivalent of the Oscars, which celebrated its 25th anniversary last November, won the Best Technology Related Awards Event at a ceremony in London on May 17, beating competition from three other shortlisted events.
The 2018 Channel Awards saw more than 1500 of the channel’s elite descend on the Battersea Evolution, London, for a nineties-themed show hosted by comedian Katherine Ryan, and a performance by Judge Jules followed by an after party at Club Tropicana in London’s Covent Garden.
“I am thrilled that the Channel Awards has been recognised at the Awards Awards,” said Incisive Media events managing director Simone Broadhurst. “This is our largest awards event and is a major undertaking to deliver. I am delighted that the team has received this richly-deserved recognition for all its hard work.”
The Awards Awards judges praised the Channel Awards for the strong theme woven into all aspects of the night, as well as for exceeding its commercial targets. They added that secondary sponsorship opportunities added value to both guests and bottom line.
The Channel Awards will return to the Battersea Evolution on November 14, with the deadline for entries 5pm on July 12. For more information go to events.channelweb.co.uk/awards
