What does Coca-Cola, Oxfam and Microlise have in common? Each is the potential winner of the much coveted In-House Event of the Year category of The Drum UK Event Awards.
We’re very proud to have been shortlisted and are hoping we will win this David vs Goliath contest when we attend the awards ceremony on 2 December. Though being shortlisted among such esteemed competitors is already reward enough.
The Microlise Transport Conference has grown in size by 400 per cent since 2012 to approximately 1,000 delegates this year, making it the largest road transport conference in Europe. In 2015 97 percent of those who attended would recommend it to colleagues.
As an entirely independent, internally organised event it has grown to feature some of the biggest brands in the world, with attendance and contribution from the industry’s leading thinkers.
Fingers crossed we win, but if not you never know, we might get some tips on how to make our conference even better in 2016 at the awards ceremony.
The date for the Microlise Transport Conference 2016 has already been announced as 18 May – once again at The Ricoh Arena in Coventry. A new website has just been launched, so please take a look to learn more about the event or register to attend!
UPDATE: We were delighted to secure a Highly Commended at the awards dinner on the 2nd December, in only one of two categories described as “particularly strong” by the host for the evening. Coca-Cola took home the award, but we’ll be aiming to go one better in 2016!
