“We are delighted to be the first to win this award. At HBI we have a dedicated team working for us who are committed to driving through change in the industry to ensure excellence across this sector,” said HBI founder and managing director Des Mclaughlin.

“Our second Meetings Industry Report was once again well received by the industry and continues to be an invaluable tool for event professionals,” he continued. “The Meetings Management Forum (the first of which was held in July 2008) ensures a constant open communication channel not only with the industry, but with our suppliers and most importantly our clients. We will continue to design initiatives that promote excellence to ensure the industry gets the recognition it rightly deserves.”
