Incisive Media bags four shortlist nods at the 2020 Awards Awards

The inaugural Women In Insurance Awards has secured the nomination in the best new event category, following up Incisive’s success with the Women in Investment Awards in 2019.

The Financial Services Forum – which Incisive acquired in 2019 – gets the nod for its Marketing Effectiveness Awards in two categories, the best sector specific event and best longstanding awards event.

Last but by no means least, Incisive’s indefatigable event operations team makes the grade in the best awards team category.

The four shortlist nominations highlight an impressive event performance for Incisive in 2019, when event revenue exceeded 50% of total turnover for the first time.

“We are delighted to be shortlisted in these categories at the Awards Awards at a time when face-to-face events are under pressure,” said Incisive Media CEO Jonathon Whiteley. “It is recognition from our peers of our tenacious championing of diversity and the continued success of the Financial Services Forum, plus of course the tremendous contribution made by our event operations team. The nominations are testament to the hard work and innovation that takes place across our business to deliver outstanding and meaningful events for our audiences.”

The 2020 Awards Awards take place at The Pavilion at the Tower of London on July 3. To see the full shortlist go to awardsawards.co.uk/finalists-2020

Channel Awards crowned best tech ceremony at the 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
