A quartet of award shortlist successes for Incisive Media

Incisive has made the cut in the Best New Conference Launch for Under 500 Delegates for the Professional Adviser 360 event, and the Best Event Linked to a Publication for Pensions and Benefits UK, a two-day conference under the auspices of the Professional Pensions brand.

The business also enjoyed successes in the Best Marketing Team and Outstanding Conference Team categories, bringing the shortlist haul to a total of four.

The Conference Awards recognise, celebrate and encourage achievement in conference and events. The awards is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year.

These shortlist nominations follow hot on the heels of a double shortlist nod for Incisive at the 2019 Awards Awards, where the blue-riband Women in Investment Awards and CRN Channel Awards made the final round.

“I’m delighted that we have made the shortlist for four categories at the Conference Awards,” said Incisive Media’s events managing director Simone Broadhurst. “And I’m particularly pleased that we have been recognised in both the individual event and team categories.

“PA360 and PB UK are two of our most successful conference products, and this is the result of a tremendous amount of hard work by our marketing and event ops teams. It’s great to see this recognised by our peers.”

The Conference Awards takes place on July 5 at The Pavilion at the Tower of London. For more information on Incisive Media’s event portfolio go to www.incisive-events.com.
