The EN Indy Awards took place on Friday 2 November at London’s Honourable Artillery Company.
The event recognised the achievements of independent organisers and companies, shining a light on those who were described as the ‘lifeblood’ of the exhibition industry.
Attendees were treated to a three-course meal and a performance by impressionist and singer Jess Robinson, who hosted the award ceremony.
