The shortlist for the coveted miaList 2019 has now been revealed, as the Meetings Industry Association prepares to shine a spotlight on the industry’s greatest talent.
Recognising the individuals who go above and beyond the call of duty, the miaList showcases those inspirational individuals who play an instrumental role in making the organisation they work for so successful.
Anyone working within, or associated with the business meetings, hospitality or events sector in the UK or Ireland is eligible for the miaList, sponsored by Epson UK.
The miaList 2019 will feature 10 names and four team titles on its roll of honour alongside dedicated ‘Leadership’ and 'Rising Star’ honours.
Nominations for the individual awards will be assessed by an esteemed panel of industry stalwarts, which includes Gill Smillie of Conference Venues Countrywide, Mark Gallen of MG Sales Performance, Robert Kenward of YOU search & select, Lacy Curtis-Ward of The Lensbury, Amanda Thurlow of ACCA and Paul Southern of Central Hall Westminster.
Meanwhile, those teams who have collectively made a significant impact on their organisation will be shortlisted by the judges and then subject to a public online vote to secure the Team title - sponsored by Core Process.
Those securing a place on the sought-after miaList will be revealed at a prestigious ceremony on 28 November at Park Plaza Riverbank.
