GE Awards programme rewards excellence across the business

Looking to reward the achievements of individual colleagues and teams and, at the same time, to better integrate a top three global exhibitions company with over 200 exhibitions and products and regional hubs in six countries, in 2017 Informa Exhibitions launched the GE Awards.

With categories like Customer First; Excellence in Sustainability; Best Use of Event Technology; Digitally Driven; and Marketer of the Year, to name a few, the GE Awards programme is designed to identify and reward best practices that help to create an outstanding customer experience at the show level, while also creating tools that help to enhance Informa Exhibitions' competitive position in the global events marketplace.

Reflecting the diversity of the division's staff and operations, nominations are open to our more than 1,400 colleagues, and are accepted not just in English but also in the native languages of colleagues from Brazil and China.

"Informa Exhibitions has grown rapidly over the last three years into one of the largest and highest performing global exhibitions enterprises, and we know that a critical reason for that success is the talent and commitment of our colleagues," said CEO Charlie McCurdy. "That was the impetus behind this new awards program: to recognize talent, dedication and forward-thinking wherever it arises in our business while, at the same time, fostering cooperation and innovation across show teams, whether old or new."

The inaugural awards in December 2017 saw colleagues recognised across 14 categories, with several going on to also win at the larger, Informa Group-wide Informa Awards in February 2018.

Colleagues are the key to our success as a business, and we look forward to celebrating more of their fantastic stories as the GE Awards grow year upon year.
