The Greatest Awards on Earth returns in style


B2B AwardsLast night saw the return of the B2B Marketing Awards and the evening was a great success.

Held at the Honourable Artillery Company (HAC) in London, the Awards sold out for the first time – a reflection of the number of excellent nominations received.

The venue was transformed into a circus, complete with fire-eaters, stilt-walkers, jugglers, and acrobats, while fairground mirrors greeted guests as they entered the reception area.

After a delicious three-course meal, host and comedian Romesh Ranganathan entertained everyone during the awards ceremony, which saw over fifty trophies handed out.

We were proud to organise and sponsor the event once again, and we hope everyone had a brilliant time.

Stephen Hodder, RIBA President, said: “Complementing beautifully with the surrounding listed buildings, it is a ground-breaking example of how to build a daring, bold and highly sustainable large public building in a historic city centre.”

The award, which is given to the best building of the year, is now in its nineteenth year.
