Last chance to nominate for miaList 2018 deadline

Members of the meetings, hospitality and events industry have just one week left to nominate their colleagues for the 2018 miaList.

Entries to the prestigious accolades, held by the Meetings Industry Association (mia), will close at midnight on Friday, 6 July.

Any person working within the UK meetings, hospitality or events industry is eligible to enter the miaList, which recognises individuals who inspire those around them, go above and beyond the call of duty and play an instrumental role inmaking the organisation they work for successful. 

Nominations will be assessed by an esteemed panel of industry stalwarts, which includes Gill Smillie of Conference Venues Countrywide, Carol Primett of Anglian Water, Rob Flinter of Park Plaza London Riverbank, Mark Gallen of MG Sales Performance, Lacy Curtis-Ward of The Lensbury, Erica Livermore of Prestige Reservations, Richard O'Riordan of Tower Hotel London and Amanda Thurlow from ACCA.

Shortlisted nominees and their nominators will be invited to attend a ‘Judging Lunch’ in September 2018. 

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.

Those securing a place on the sought-after miaList will be revealed at a prestigious ceremony on Friday, 2 November at The Tower Hotel, which is nestled between the River Thames, St Katharine Docks and alongside the World Heritage Site, offering unparalleled views of the iconic Tower Bridge.
