The shortlist is in: EPA nominees announced

December 10, 2015 1:07 PM

Access All Areas has announced the shortlist for its 2016 Event Production Awards.

The nominees span 20 categories, including four new honours: Best Culture/Food Event, Best Sustainable Event, Indoor Venue of the Year and Outdoor Venue of the Year.

The Event Production Awards recognise excellence in the outdoor and indoor events industry. They'll take place on 12 February 2016 at the Lancaster London Hotel, which has hosted the ceremony three times.

The Access All Areas' Editor's Award will also be handed out on the night.

The 2015 awards marked the first time the ceremony became a standalone event since launching alongside the Event Production Show in 2012. 500 event professionals attended last year for an evening that included a drinks reception, three-course meal and entertainment.

The breadth and pedigree of our 2016 Event Production Awards shortlist proves the importance of these awards, said Duncan Siegle, publishing director at Mash Media. I am delighted with the response to our new categories. With such outstanding events, venues and suppliers represented on the shortlist, the ceremony in February is sure to be a night to remember.
