Swindon based business, Venues Event Management, part of Capita Travel and Events, has won ‘best intermediary agency’ (more than 40 employees) for the fifth consecutive year at the recent Meetings & Incentive Travel Magazine Awards 2013.

The ‘best intermediary agency’ is awarded to venue finding and event management agencies, which employ more than 40 people, for service excellence.

These prestigious awards are unique within the event management industry, as thousands of meeting and event organisers from across the UK vote for the winner of each accolade in every category and each vote is then verified by an independent auditor.

Anita Lowe, director of meetings and events for Capita Travel and Events, said: “On behalf of the business, I’d like to say thank you to our customers for taking time to vote for us. To win best intermediary agency for the fifth year in a row, especially when faced with stiff competition from four other nominees, is testament to the quality of venue finding and event management service and expertise within Capita Travel and Events. This award also goes some way in recognising the passion and hard work of all our employees.”

The Meetings & Incentive Travel Magazine Awards 2013 presentation dinner, attended by more than 1000 people, took place on 19 March at Battersea Evolution, London, and featured BBC presenter Kate Silverton returning as compere.
