Winners of the Event Production Awards 2017
The live and outdoor events industry celebrated well into the night last week at the Event Production Awards, cheering on a host of well-deserved winners.
The Ticket Factory, Ascot Structures, Quantum Special Effects, The Loop and Continental Drifts were among the night’s winners.
Arena Group ended up as the biggest winners at the ceremony, with its company Arena Structures collecting the Access All Areas Editor’s Award. Dave Withey, Arena UK & Europe sales and marketing director, also took home the inaugural Industry Legend Award, recognising his 40 years working in the events industry.
“It was such a surprise to be honoured with this award,” Withey said. “My thanks have to go out to my wonderful colleagues at Arena that I’ve worked with over the years, in particular Jill Mowat who has put up with me for over half of that time, as well as the many peers and friends that I have had the pleasure of collaborating with across the events industry.”
A Special Recognition Award was also created for 2017, to bring attention to the organisers behind charity event The Flying Seagull Project. Ash Perrin, Ed Harcourt, Melody Kennett, Neil Kennett, Faye Toner, Paul Luxford, Iain Rayner, Jim Carey Connell and Steve Wynne collected the award.
Duncan Siegle, the Event Production Awards’ event director and publishing director of Access publisher Mash Media, commented: “Everyone had a fantastic evening at this year’s Event Production Awards. We couldn’t have asked for more deserving winners, picked by our esteemed and diverse panel of judges.
“The addition of the Industry Legend Award given to Dave Withey, coupled with our Special Recognition Award to The Flying Seagull Project, made for an incredible night of celebrations. Congratulations to all the winners, and roll on 2018!”

The En Indy Awards
The story of David and Goliath is well known but the reality is that Goliath normally wins and this is reflected in many industry awards programmes. EN introduced The Indy Award recently to cater for exactly this – to allow smaller, independent organisers to compete with their peers rather than the global behemoths we know and love.
