Us event professionals love a good awards ceremony don’t we? Last Thursday I attended the International Corporate Event or ICE Awards, recognising in-house corporate event organisers, at the British Museum.

Although I wasn’t up for an award (it’s still early days), it was great to catch up with a few old faces from my venue sales days as well as a few new faces and in such a fabulous setting.

BNP Paribas came out top on the night of the inaugural event coming away with 3 awards including Charlie Farr who received the Rising Star Award, sponsored by EMA.

All worthy winners the awards went to:

Best Sponsorship Activation Event – BNP Paribas

Best Leadership Programme Event – AECOM

Best Motivational Event – BP

Best Relationship Building Event – BNP Paribas

Best Experiential Marketing Event – Twitter
