speaking at the Event Industry Awards

It was so exciting because we didn’t realise that we were going to win. All these great names and great companies there - it was such a surprise. Deloitte is such a big company but sometimes a lot of people don’t know exactly what Deloitte do, so it’s a good platform to get the brand out there.

Dr. Ruth Craggs

2019 Judging Co-ordinator, speaking at the Event Industry Awards

Certainly, from the entries that we saw at TU Dublin the standard of the entries was very high. They were very impressive overall, particularly in terms of the number of high-quality productions.


speaking at the Event Industry Awards

To be recognised along with our peers is a very humbling experience and we’re very honoured to have won 4 awards this evening, especially among so many other talented agencies. It’s a really great opportunity for all of us to come together and to see some incredible acts that are available in Ireland for our clients and for ourselves.

Paddy Cosgrave, Web Summit

Outstanding Contribution to the Events Industry 2018

It’s a recognition of the great work of the team. There’s more than 200 of us now, the vast majority are based in Dublin and we’re already, hopefully, continuing to create great events around the world. The event industry in Ireland is obviously thriving. There’s lots of people here having a great time, it’s a good sign I’m sure: 10 years ago, 8 years ago, times were very different but today things are great. They’ve certainly turned a corner (and then some more) so that’s fantastic

Aoife Keegan-Twomey, Dublin Zoo

Best Event & Best Live Event 2018 – Wild Lights at Dublin Zoo

The other nominees are just incredible, we just didn’t think that we were in the running really; you know it’s just nice to be here. It’s the first event award that Dublin Zoo has ever been in the running for, so it was just nice to be here on the night and then to actually hear your name being called is just unreal.

Sarah O’Brien, Cogs & Marvel

Best Event Innovation – Lidl at the National Ploughing Championships 2018

Oh, it’s incredible from a marketing point of view but for company moral it’s just incredible to win an award and to have all of our team here to celebrate; it’s just amazing. An event like this is brilliant because the team love coming to it and it honours the work we’ve done over the year.

Richard Li, Aramark at Croke Park

Best Event Caterer 2018

This award is actually very recognised by the industry and especially in the catering industry and the event industry. From a stadium point of view, we showed people that we not only provide simple and joyful ‘burger and chips’ we also provide high standard hospitality events as well.

Mark French, Director

MobileEscapeRooms.ie - 2018 sponsor

(In 2018) with the launch of MobileEscapeRooms.ie we decided to sponsor an awards section because everyone is here from the industry: I mean it’s the who’s who of the industry. It’s a great platform to get in front of everyone from the industry and the media.

Charlene Pigott, weddingsonline.ie

Best Awards Ceremony 2018 – Weddingsonline Awards

We were just so excited because we felt like we were up against so many amazing groups and we were just delighted to be here as a finalist. We were celebrating being here and to have our names called out was just the icing on the cake. Phenomenal, (we’re) just blown away.


Best Event Team 2018

On a night like tonight we’re up against some serious competition so that’s probably why we were so delighted. I haven’t stopped smiling the last hour really because I suppose we didn’t expect it. I mean we hold ourselves to the highest standard but to be recognised by your peers and judges on a night like this is very special.

Peter Hanley

Director, Hanley Event Group - 2018 partner

An event like this is a high profile event: the highest profile event of its type in the city, in the country indeed. And I think it’s always good bringing new people into the event industry, all the time that’s what it’s about; new people, new ideas, new creativity; we have to encourage it. Sponsoring an event like this was our opportunity to give something back to the industry: yes, delighted to do it.

Daniel Halpin, Cogs & Marvel

Best Event Management Company 2018

For a company that never enters it’s a fantastic opportunity to profile your company, to be recognised as an industry leader amongst the entire industry.

Dr. Theresa Ryan, Judging Co-Ordinator

Lecture & Researcher, School of Hospitality Management and Tourism, Dublin Institute of Technology

This year we had a very high standard of entries across all the different categories. (There are) some very interesting events happening out there, very innovative things happening on the ground. So, it was a real pleasure to judge them and get a real insight into what’s happening in the events industry.
