Two Wins at the 2018 Conference Awards

Great news for Team HGA! We were delighted to receive two nods at The Conference Awards in London last week. We won silver for Best Conference by an Events Agency and Bronze for Best Event Operations Team for our work with the wonderful Hyde Group on their 50th anniversary last year.

Best Conference by an Events Agency

This one says it all about HGA – we were up against some massive competitors, serving brands with huge multi-million-pound budgets and showstopping elements that most clients could only dream of. And yet, using only a modest budget for our not-for-profit client, we were able to top these entries through our innovative ideas, creative approach and our detailed understanding of the brand’s values. The judges commented:

“HGA really went beyond the brief – we really liked that staff ran stalls about their departments, volunteers from company helped run the day, given social purpose of company the cost-saving ideas were excellent – pub format for founders video genius, shown in the attendee reviews.”

“A solid entry that highlights how working closely with a client, over a prolonged period, enabled a deep understanding of the needs of the client and delegates which, in turn, has resulted in an excellent event”

Best Event Operations Team

We were also really pleased to be honoured for our work as Best Event Operations Team as our teamwork means the world to us. We’re proud to offer so many specialists – from event planning and technical production to design, video and digital – all working together under one roof and the Hyde event was a classic example of everyone playing their part and working side by side with the client. The judges commented:

“An experienced team with examples of a range of events examples of venue and supplier negotiations. Good teamwork, account and stakeholder management.”
