First Network are delighted to announce that we won Bronze for ‘Best Event Provider’ at the prestigious M&IT Industry awards in London on Friday.

M&IT is one of the Event Industry’s most respected awards programmes. Attracting more than 1200 industry professionals, the 2017 Event was especially notable as this year marks its 30th Anniversary.

Organised by Meetings & Incentive Travel magazine, the awards bring together all sectors of the business to reward excellence of service and product, to enjoy fantastic cuisine, fine wines and live entertainment and to raise funds for charity.

There are 19 awards voted for by readers and clients. 16,000 individual votes were cast by over 6,000 voters which resulted in more than 110 companies making the shortlist. First Network were one of seven companies shortlisted for the title of Best Event Provider 2017 and were delighted to have been honoured with a place in the top three amongst some very tough competition.

Winners were announced at a glittering black-tie occasion at London’s Battersea Evolution on Friday. The evening was hosted by Eamonn Holmes and other celebrity guests. It provided an opportunity to network with industry leaders who gather for this special evening whilst raising funds for the meeting’s industry’s own charity, Meeting Needs.

M&IT marketing and communications director Maria Voller said: “The M&IT Awards is the biggest event of its kind in the industry, so to be named as a finalist is a significant achievement”.
