Well, what can I say…the news that TTA had nominated me for the Conference and Incentive Travel (C&IT) Magazine’s 2018 A-List is definitely a highlight of my career thus far. The industry accolade recognises the top 35 UK event agency professionals aged 35 and under each year and for my peers to have actively voted me on to this industry stage, to me is mind-blowing!
Once selected by C&IT, A-Listers were invited to an interview and photoshoot day at The London EDITION in Soho. This comprised creating our best ‘Apprentice-style’ impression as well as answering several quick-fire questions; for the full interview please follow the link here.
This was followed by a celebration of our success with another opportunity to experience The London EDITION during an evening hosted by C&IT in association with Visit Norway. C&IT A-Listers both old and new came together for an exciting evening of networking, canapes and Akvavit and we were presented with a copy of the official A-List 2018 book, recently distributed at the IMEX Exhibition in Frankfurt – please follow the link here for a full digital copy. It was also revealed that Visit Norway will be offering a lucky few of us the opportunity to attend one of two FAM trips to Norway later in the year. The first is due to take place in September traveling to Bergen (Fjord Capital of the World!) supported by Visit Bergen, Thon Hotels and Norway CVB.
For the first time, this year C&IT will be awarding an ‘A-Lister of the Year’ at the C&IT Awards due to take place at the London Hilton Park Lane on Friday 21 September. Of the 35 recognised, judges will form a shortlist and will choose the young individual with the most impressive story – fingers crossed!
