EVCOM_LIve_Awards_2016_With_Melia

After an exhilarating day of judging on Wednesday 19th October EVCOM is thrilled to reveal the outstanding nominees shortlisted for the 2016 Live Awards, the most respected mark of excellence in the live and experiential events industry.

Heading the shortlist is TRO, with eight entries spread across six different projects. They are followed by EdComs with five nominations for four projects and J. Walter Thompson London with five nominations for one project. Ashfield/Healthcare, BrandFuel, drp and FreemanXP each earned four nominations from the judges, while Action Impact, AMV Live and NexGen Healthcare secured three.

The sheer number of strong entries made it a hard task for the stellar judging panel who remarked on the high calibre of submissions presenting an impressive array of styles, creativity and innovation. In total 38 agencies are shortlisted in 24 categories for their world-class work on 50 projects.

It also promises to be a spotlight moment for the Rising Star winner who will be first up on stage on the night to receive one of the brand new Live Awards Trophies.  The Rising Star award will henceforth honour those industry figures who, throughout their careers, inspired the next generation of event professionals and this year pays tribute to the late Peter Franks.
