Last week (Friday 12?May), the GIMA team were over the moon to win silver at the inaugural Awards Awards ceremony. This exciting accolade was awarded to the GIMA team for their continued efforts in delivering the annual GIMA Awards, with the event scooping silver in the ?Best Event – less than 500 attendees? category.

The Awards Awards – a brand new spin-off event from GCN, the team behind the Conference Awards and the Association Excellence Awards ? were launched in 2017 to celebrate the best events from across all industries and product sectors. With 15 categories, the awards cover everything from award teams and suppliers, to judging processes and supporting websites. The GIMA team entered the GIMA Awards into several award categories, with the event being recognised for its unrivalled value, industry support and continued growth within the ?Best Event ? less than 500 attendees? category.

Speaking about this win, GIMA director Vicky Nuttall said: ?I am so pleased to be able to confirm that the GIMA Awards have been recognised in this way. This is the first time that we have put the awards out there beyond our industry, and to receive such an accolade from experienced and passionate event professionals works to further boost our enthusiasm for the event. We have always known it?s a great event, but it?s always great to have this echoed by others. Of course, the awards are nothing without the continued support of our sponsors, all those that enter and, obviously, all those who attend, helping to create a real night to remember. This award is yours also.?
