Our judges split into five groups to deliberate the categories, which this year include Best Christmas Party Package, Best Production Agency, and Best Integrated Event Campaign awards.
The judges included Rebecca Kane, managing director of The O2; Hugh Robertson, chief executive of RPM; Julian Saipe, managing director of Zafferano; and Munir Samji, chairman of Blitz Communications.
Rachel Bull, chair of judges and associate editor of Event magazine, said: "I would like to thank all our judges once again for the incredible amount of time and dedication they put into judging this year's categories. We had the largest number of entiries since 2008, so it was no mean feat."
The winners will be announced at the Event Awards 2013 ceremony, taking place on Friday 4 October at the Roundhouse in Camden.Follow @eventmagazine
