App agencies combine to win big at the Event Tech Awards

The Event Technology Awards 2016 saw the combined efforts of Intergalactic and Eventbase take home new-look trophies for: Best use of Technology for Engagement, Best use of Technology for a Brand and Best Proximity Marketing Technology at Supernova, London yesterday.

“We went in for four awards and left with three of them, a close to perfect night,” Jasper Squire, MD of Intergalatic, tells Event Industry News.

More than 500 event professionals celebrated every success at the event, which was hosted by Andrew Ryan for a third successive year. The comedian heaped praise on the participants and scorn on political processes in roughly equal measure post-presidential election.

“The Event Technology Awards is a wonderful occasion,” Ryan said afterwards. “Everyone in the room is so switched on to every category and they’re lovely people! It’s a real pleasure to be involved.”

CadmiumCD took trophies for Best Event Management Solution and Best Conference Technology, Glisser got gongs for Best Use of Technology for Audience Participation, and the Rising Star title went to its employee Rebecca Tobi, but the winners of all 31 awards were equally important.

Adam Parry, Co-Founder/ Director of organiser AMP Events, comments: “The appreciation for event tech, and the companies developing and delivering it, has outstripped even our lofty expectations when we launched the awards in 2013.

“There were more categories this time and so many remarkable entries the shortlists for several were very long! It was a great night and our thanks go to everybody who entered, to our judges and sponsors, to Andrew Ryan and to the staff at Supernova. Many congratulations to the winners, but every company in the mix thoroughly deserved its name in lights.”
