Best Sound and Technology Providers – Festival Supplier Awards 2017
We are excited to announce that we have been shortlisted for two category’s this year at the Festival Supplier Awards! ‘Best Festival Technology Provider‘ And ‘Best Sound‘ for your work at Secret Garden Party 2016.
The Festival Supplier Awards were launched to recognise the achievements and hard work of outdoor event suppliers. With the festival sector diversifying rapidly in the last few years, meaning it’s so much more than ‘rock ‘n’ roll’, we wanted to provide a platform to celebrate the ‘behind-the-scenes’ teams that are the lifeblood of any successful festival.
Many outdoor event suppliers have indicated that the festival sector represents a significantly increasing proportion of their business. Festivals offer a good benchmark for the way live events are transitioning e.g. through RFID technology and experiential marketing and with over 60% of music tourism delivered from festival-goers, we felt the timing was right to launch a dedicated awards evening to highlight the creativity and innovation that festival suppliers deliver on every occasion.
The award categories cover a multitude of outdoor event essentials, from staging, crowd management, temporary structures and crewing to crowd barriers, toilets, technology and glamping. In addition, there are accolades for Best Green Supplier and Best Production Team. New for 2017 is a dedicated award for ‘Best Brand Activation at a Festival’, this will look to reward the growing contribution that agencies and brands make to events.
Returning for their third edition they will once again recognise the hard work and dedication of festival and outdoor event suppliers in what is undoubtedly a highly competitive marketplace. Already firmly established as an excellent evening of celebration and networking, the awards will return to London’s Hurlingham Club on Thursday 26th January 2017, timed perfectly to kick start the industry’s year.
