The closing date for entries to the 2008 EIBTM Meeting and Incentive Industry Awards is August 31, 2007. With just two weeks to go, the 6 categories are recognized as the key benchmarks for what makes a successful event or campaign and showcases the best of the global industry. This year a new category has been introduced “Best Event Evaluation.”
The awards recognize the contribution, creativity and dedication of the world’s event creators and planners, and the judges look for imagination, innovation, excellence, execution and evaluation across all types of events and marketing campaigns.
Julian Pullan, managing director; Jack Morton and one of last year’s EIBTM award winners said, “The EIBTM Awards recognize exceptional creativity and imaginative skill, so we were delighted that our work with Philips was recognized with the ‘Best conference under 250 passengers’ award in 2007.”

· Best Special Event
· Best Conference (above 250 participants)
