The shortlist of finalists for this year’s AEO Excellence Awards has been announced. Event organisers, suppliers and venues have been shortlisted for more than 20 awards. The shortlist can be viewed here.

Following a record number of entries the judging process was managed by an independent organisation and finalists were decided by a panel of 38 judges, including Stand Out editor, Caroline Clift.

Chris Skeith, chief executive of AEO, comments: “Our judges have been working hard over the past few weeks critiquing all of the entries in readiness for releasing our shortlist. Every year it’s an exciting time for the industry, we wish each and every organisation, team and individual that has made the final cut the very best of luck.”

The AEO Excellence Awards will take place on June 16 at The Grosvenor House Hotel.
