UK – ICE and EiG shortlisted in AEO awardsBy Lewis - 19 May 2016
The gaming division at Clarion Events is celebrating nominations across three different categories in the 2016 Association of Exhibition Organisers (AEO) Excellence Awards. Widely regarded as the Oscars for the events and exhibition sectors, the AEO has shortlisted ICE Totally Gaming in two categories, Best Trade Show and Organiser Team of the Year, with the Berlin-based EiG, shortlisted in the Best Conference category. All three of the Clarion nominations will go forward to the prestigious AEO Awards ceremony which is being held at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel on 17 June.
Reflecting on the nominations, Marketing Director, Jo Mayer said: “ICE has enjoyed considerable success in the AEO awards, most recently winning Best Marketing Campaign in 2015. It’s fantastic for what is gaming’s largest business-to-business event, to be nominated in a further two categories this year and for EiG to also be recognised for the work it has undertaken in successfully redefining the Conference experience.”
She added: “We continue to adopt a brand-centric approach to the development, marketing and operation of all of our events in the international gaming space and in the process helping our stakeholders meet their strategic business objectives wherever they are based in the world. The AEO Awards showcases the best that the events industry has to offer and as such, it is a great achievement to receive three shortlisted nominations in one year.”
