Mash Media is the largest and most inclusive media company in the global events industry. Their portfolio of products covers every sector of the industry, from exhibitions and trade fairs, through to conference and brand events, and into outdoor events and festivals.
We work with their Exhibition News (EN) brand on several key events across the year – including The EN Indy Awards.
EN were launching a brand new awards ceremony, The EN Indy Awards. EN created this industry and business event to recognise the achievements of independent organiser shows, teams and individuals. The exhibition industry is ever changing and more and more shows are being set up and launched by smaller organisations that don’t achieve the recognition they deserve.
The EN Indy Awards was created to fill this gap, making sure that individual, team and company contributions to the industry, from smaller organisations, are recognised and celebrated.
Everyone enjoys being recognised for good work and what better way to do it than with an awards ceremony. It’s the ideal opportunity to celebrate success and the industry, whilst providing a platform for networking and future business growth.
A new event needs a brand new award. We needed to create something that reflected the prestige of EN; as well as the values associated with the ‘independents’ in a design that gave the EN branding maximum impact.
EN had already created a logo and our design team were able to recreate this with our state-of-the art colour print technology, adapting the design to the crystal. We recommended the Roma Award, a truly solid crystal that showcased the EN Indy Awards branding perfectly in its full colour glory. The Roma makes a very covetable piece and keepsake for the successful award winners.
The EN Indy Awards was launched on November 2nd 2018 at The Honourable Artillery Company, London, EC1Y 2BQ.
With the expert EN team behind it, the evening was of course a great success and paved the way for many future events. Impressionist and singer Jess Robinson hosted the award ceremony – giving a fantastic performance to be remembered.
The event was described as ‘shining a light on those who were described as the ‘lifeblood’ of the exhibition industry.’
Tucked away in Central London, the venue is a historic 18th Century mansion set in a six acre garden yet located just a stone’s throw from Moorgate in the heart of the City of London. A magnificent setting for any industry or business event which provided a suitably intimate setting – ideal for the occasion.
