Pensions and Benefits UK takes centre stage at the 2017 Conference Awards

The two-day event won the best free to attend conference category against a tough field. Incisive also took a silver award for the Funds to Watch events in the best conference series class.

The Conference Awards took place on Friday, June 30 at Tobacco Dock in London and competition was fierce across 20 categories, with more than 250 entries from the cream of the UK’s conference industry.

The success at these awards rounded off a successful week for Incisive, which also won the prestigious B2B publisher of the year award at the Association of Online Practitioners (AOP) awards two nights earlier.

The Conference Awards gong was awarded to the 17th running of Pensions and Benefits UK, which expanded to five workstreams featuring more than 100 speakers across case studies, presentations, debates, quick fire sessions and breakfast briefings. PB UK is the flagship event of Incisive’s Professional Pensions brand.

“We would like to say a massive thank you to all the delegates who attended and of course for the continued support of more than 40 sponsors, without whom we could not have held the event,” said Incisive Media’s events director Simone Broadhurst. “We’re incredibly proud to have received this recognition and hope to continue this winning performance next year.”

The Funds to Watch event series is a cornerstone of Incisive’s Investment Week brand, and this is the first time the event has been recognised at the Conference Awards.

“Funds to Watch has gone from strength to strength over the three years we have run it,” said Broadhurst. “It has been superbly supported by delegates, which has delivered great value to our sponsors and reflected well on the Investment Week brand.”
