University events team wins pair of awards

The conference and events team at Lancaster University has won two awards at the national Academic Venue Awards.

Lancaster Conferences+ won Best Sustainability and Best Event Management Team prizes at the ceremony, which honours excellence in academic venues.

The award for Sustainability recognises innovative sustainable practice and policies that help deliver environmentally friendly events and the award for Event Management pays tribute to those teams who have exceeded their customers’ expectations and delivered outstanding events.

Over the past 12 months, Lancaster Conferences+ has managed some significant residential conferences for 950 plus delegates such as the Association of University Director of Estates (AUDE), European Association for the Study of Science & Technology (EASST) and the Association of Engineers (AUE).

Helen Davenport, head of conferences, events and visitor services at Lancaster University, said: “Such accolades are testament to the whole team’s passion and commitment – from sales through to delivery – to look after our customers and our planet.

"We were up against some stiff competition for both of these titles and I am incredibly proud that the judges recognised our excellent people and our drive for truly sustainable conferences and events here at Lancaster University.”
