EN Elite Awards and a Legend is honoured...

 

‘Twas the week before Christmas and all through the team, excitement was growing, but what could that mean? Well duh, the Exhibition News Elite Awards of course!

Taking place on the 20th of December at the multi-award winning venue The Porter Tun at The Brewery, no less, this particular event was dedicated to recognising suppliers who go above and beyond to meet their customer’s needs, as well as those professionals who help to keep things ‘fresh’, so to speak.

In EN’s own words, it’s also their way of giving back to the industry and providing new opportunities to bring people together, and it was (we think) the perfect way to end the year!

Umm, have we also mentioned that we were up for no less than TWO awards, including Best Furniture Company of the year?

you can bet your bottom dollar that we donned our finest frocks and suits and headed to the Big Smoke en masse. After all, not only did we want to celebrate our own achievements throughout 2017, but we also wanted to show our support for our fellow suppliers and wider industry comrades.

And boy are we glad we did because would you believe it (yes, most of you would probably say), in spite of all of the tough competition Our Helen, Europa’s one and only AWESOME Events and Marketing Manager, only went and won the Best Supplier Marketer ‘gong’! Needless to say we were bursting with pride.

Furthermore, our pals at EN went on to dedicate the inaugural Industry Legends Award - an award specifically set aside to recognise remarkable individuals and their contribution to the industry - to our very dear late friend and head honcho Steve ‘Papa Smurf’ Murphy.

Bringing the team to tears, Johnno Gordon from Mash Media Group spoke about just how kind, hardworking, forward thinking, compassionate, inspirational and (obviously) quirky Steve was; as well as how his passion rubbed off on everything he did and everyone around him. It was a very fitting tribute to a ‘Bloody Smashing’ all round good guy.

And so, as we begin yet another new year here at Europa (one we know will be even more exciting, eventful and fun-filled than the last) we just wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of you - our customers, our own suppliers, and of course the EN team themselves - for your continued support, and for your contribution to ensuring we continue to have such wonderful success stories to share.

Cheers!
