The E Awards are back!

The E Awards is Scotland’s only award evening for the events and festivals industry, where we honour and celebrate the outstanding work of our peers.

Returning to the O2 Academy Edinburgh on Thursday, 25th April 2024, the E Awards will give you a chance to savour an array of mouth-watering dishes, enjoying roving entertainment and connect with industry colleagues.

These awards are testament to the resilience of the industry, and the outstanding companies and organisations involved. We aim to celebrate the planners, suppliers, venues and events by amplifying their accomplishments and celebrating their successes.

The E Awards entries are assessed by a panel of the industry’s leading figures who have helped shape the sector through their influence and expertise, marking this one of the most prestigious awards to win for Scottish events.
