London Venue Awards organiser, GCN Events, is extending the deadline for submissions until 28th June.

The extension reflects the growing demand from venues to enter the awards that are seen as the benchmark of best practice, excellence and exceptional quality for the capital’s meeting, conference and event spaces.

A new category – An hour from London – has also been added and highlights the impact the awards are having amongst the venue, corporate and agency community as a quality standard kitemark. The twenty categories encompass all facets that make up exemplary meetings and events; from best catering at a venue and venue with the best customer service through to best sporting venue and best unusual venue in the capital.

Submissions are due by 28th June, the shortlist will be notified in August 2017 and the awards ceremony takes place on 20th October.

Rory Ross Russell, founder & director of GCN Events, said: “We are delighted to see such interest and demand to enter, hence why we’ve extended the deadline to fit in with the many busy schedules at this peak time in the event calendar.  The addition of the category ‘An hour from London’ proves the value of these awards to venues and buyers.”
