On 20 December 2017, the exhibition industry descended on London’s The Brewery to celebrate suppliers at the inaugural EN Elite Awards.
Launched by EN Awards organiser and EN publisher Mash Media, the brand new awards were designed to celebrate and recognise the companies and individuals working behind the scenes to make exhibitions succeed.
