The association received an incredible number of nominations for the annual list, which is designed to celebrate outstanding and passionate members of the meetings, hospitality and events industry who go above and beyond the call of duty.

This year’s sought-after miaList, sponsored by Epson, features 10 names, dedicated ‘Leadership’ and ‘One to Watch’ honours, as well as two team titles, which were revealed at an awards lunch at the Park Plaza London Riverbank on Thursday 28 November.

The team awards, sponsored by Core Process, featured two categories – Best Agency/Supplier and Best Venue and were chosen from a shortlist of 13 across both categories.
