Vendies Awards 2022 @ grand connaught rooms

Following the success of last year’s event, this year’s Vendies Awards are set to be even bigger and better than ever with new categories intended to celebrate the best in the industry. But don’t delay as the deadline is fast approaching with entries closing on February 28.

The winners will be announced at a live awards ceremony event on Wednesday 7th June 2023 at The Grand Connaught Rooms, London.

Despite the challenges caused by the coronavirus pandemic during the last three years, we still managed pull off an extremely successful and well received live event last year, thanks to our sponsors, judges and of course all the entrants. Now we can’t wait to bring you The Vendies awards event back for another live presentation lunch, when the industry will once again come together in order to celebrate the innovation and achievements in both the supplier and operator categories. The new categories added, Women of the Year and Rising star aim to move the awards forward and recognise the new achievements in the industry.

The lunchtime presentation event itself is a prime opportunity to network with friends, colleagues and industry stakeholders, as well as meet with existing and potential new clients. Attended by key industry figures and representatives of leading companies from across the sector – The Vendies Awards is the must-attend event of the year.

All entries are thoroughly examined and carefully considered by an expert independent judging panel. Each entry will be reviewed by the judges, comprised of leading names from across the sector in accordance with a strict set of criteria to determine the winners in each category. This serves to give The Vendies Awards real credibility within the industry and a prestigious award to win.

For 2023, The Vendies has become a certified Carbon Neural Event. This means that by working closely with carbon reduction engineers and the event venue, we will be meticulously calculating all the carbon that the live event will produce. The Business Carbon Assessments will be completed by an independent third party to the international standard and the GHG Protocol which is international recognised. Once complete, we will offset all the carbon produced by the live event to a chosen cause.
