The Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company, ADNEC, has won two prestigious Association of Event Organisers Awards, AEO, at a special ceremony held in London.

The award recognised ADNEC as the ‘Most Sustainable Exhibition and Conference Venue' and ExCeL London as the ‘Venue of the Year.' This confirms the ADNEC Group's growing industry recognition as an international venue developer that consistently delivers excellent facilities and services to the events community.

Following a record number of entries, the judging process was managed by an independent organisation and finalists were chosen by a panel of 38 judges. The sustainability category witnessed steep competition between 7 centers and organisers, including RAI Amsterdam, Business Design Centre, UBM, Global Experience Services, and the Crystal, among others. The finalists in the best venue category included AEG the O2, RAI Amsterdam, the NEC, Scottish Events Campus and Olympia London, along with others.

Noura Mohammad Al Kaabi, Chairwoman of ADNEC, said, "It is a great honour to win this prestigious and internationally-acclaimed recognition from the AEO. The awards validate our innovative strategies and forward-thinking practices to ensure the long-term sustainability of our state-of-the-art venues and exceptional quality of services."

Humaid Matar Al Dhaheri, Group CEO of ADNEC, added, "This latest recognition is a testimony to our continued success in developing advanced event infrastructure and providing excellent services. It is an outcome of our collective efforts to deliver the very best experience possible to our customers, and will motivate us to strive for even higher standards in the future."

The AEO Awards recognises the best that the global events industry has to offer, celebrating organisers' achievements, excellence in venues and quality of services. The AEO is the trade body representing companies which develop or manage trade and consumer events. Established in 1981, it is run by an elected council of representatives, specialist working groups and a full-time secretariat.

The ADNEC Group, which comprises the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, the Al Ain Convention Centre and ExCeL London, has previously won leading industry awards for its sustained efforts in boosting the MICE sector in Abu Dhabi and for offering flexible, state-of-the-art and technologically advanced facilities for exhibitions, congresses and corporate events.
