The Art Deco venue will play host to the 2014 awards ceremony, which recognises the work of the creative, exhibition and experiential sectors of the live events industry. This year the event will incorporate a speakeasy theme.

Liz Lockard, group events manager at Haymarket Media Group, organiser of the Event Awards, said: "After much event feedback, we have honed our categories to ensure the evening is as streamlined as possible, leaving more time for networking and celebration."

Will Poole, events and compliance manager at Troxy, added: "We are delighted to be hosting the 2014 Event Awards, which are always one of the best nights on the industry’s calendar. We are looking forward to seeing what new ideas Event has up its sleeve for this year’s ceremony."

Zafferano has also been announced as the catering partner for the 2014 Event Awards. It will be providing a three-course meal on the night, as well as a drinks reception and canapés.

Julian Saipe, managing director of Zafferano, said: "We are delighted to be catering the Event Awards for the fourth consecutive year. After three great years at the Roundhouse, we are looking forward to catering this prestigious industry event at Troxy.  

"We have a few surprises up our sleeve, and whilst our menu is yet to be confirmed, we will undoubtedly take inspiration from the venue itself as one of the great Art Deco cinemas."

The deadline for awards entries is 21 May 2014. To find out how to enter, visit the Event Awards website. For the latest updates on the event, follow the Event Awards on Twitter at @EventAwards.
