BEST DEVELOPMENT OF AN EXISTING AWARD
Beyond Media Services in partnership with Revolution Events – Security & Fire Excellence Awards 2019
Beyond Media Services has been organising high quality, entertaining commercially successful Awards events for over 15 years.
We quickly identified that for all Awards events, there is the initial excitement at the beginning of the night, followed by the extreme high for the winners, accompanied by the lows of the unsuccessful majority who become increasingly disconnected as the trophy presentations continue.
So, we decided to make our Awards as interactive and inclusive as possible throughout, with the focus on making the event entertaining for all, for the whole show, fully utilising the AV/production elements that are in place.
Our company aim is to produce events that are fun and highly entertaining, knowing that it will lead to a high level of repeat business, with very satisfied companies spreading the positive word.
And it really does work!
Contentive – British Accountancy Awards

This event is run for our Accountancy Age community and provides a key opportunity for this group to come together to celebrate excellence within their profession.
Institution of Engineering and Technology – Churchill Medal Award
The origins of the Churchill medal date back to 1946 when Sir Winston Churchill gave his name to an award that would recognise the significant engineering contributions of individuals during World War II. The Medal became the Society of Engineers most prestigious award and continues to pay tribute to the teams and individuals for their outstanding engineering achievement.
In 2011 it was reinstated with the support of seven Professional Engineering Institutions (PEIs). Lead by the Institution of Engineering & Technology (IET), the PEI’s set about creating a stronger identity for the medal.
The medal now recognises Achievement in Engineering and Technical Advancement in support of the development and use of capability to support Military Operations/Readiness.
The first presentation of the re-instated award in 2012 was at a routine IET defence lecture compared to 2019’s outstanding reception and dinner for 160 guests. The awards have been presented by Rt. Hon Sir Nicholas Soames, Rupert Soames OBE and Vice Admiral Sir Simon Lister as well being broadcast via British Forces Broadcasting Service Television.
By 2021, the PEIs hope to grow the event further and increase attendance to 200 guests, with a member of the royal household invited to present the award.

ITP Media Group – Commercial Interior Design Awards
The Commercial Interior Design (CID) Awards are a celebration of excellence in the vibrant interior design and fit out sectors in the Middle East.

LexisNexis Risk Solutions Group – EG Awards
As one of the market leaders in real estate intelligence, EG magazine has consistently championed the shifting focus of real estate, including increased coverage of diversity, employee engagement and ultimately rewarding companies and individuals that are changing the property industry for the better.
Real estate is going through something of a transformation and so too are the EG Awards. We are looking to the future, utilising technology, and are doing our best to be climate aware and as inclusive as possible.

Propertydrum – The Negotiator Awards, Conference & Expo
The Negotiator is owned by Propertydrum Ltd, a media company established for 10 years, which has only two full-time employees – despite the PLC-scale of the event that we put on. We punch way above our weight, but we are happy to go toe-to-toe with any other UK awards event.
We are of course supported by our carefully selected production partners: Maxlive Events (AV production) and Createvents (ticketing). We make an unbeatable team and put on an unbeatable event. Winning this award will prove just that!

From its modest base when we acquired it, our goal was to build the most prestigious national industry event for estate and letting agents. We aimed to combine face-to-face business opportunities for our audience and clients, with a rigorously tested awards programme, presented in a spectacular and exciting format, and to be considered the highlight of the industry year. We feel we have fully succeeded in delivering on those goals.
Taylist Media – kbbreview Retail & Design Awards 2019
The kbbreview Retail & Design Awards are our industry’s most sought-after accolades in the kitchen and bathroom sector, and celebrate the very best retailers, designers and manufacturers. Over 650 guests travelled from all corners of UK to the O2 Victoria Warehouse in Manchester, a new venue for the awards after listening to feedback from guests.
It was our first carbon-neutral event. With the help of our Sustainability Partners we calculated the carbon footprint of not just the event itself, but also the travel of all attendees and offset that with a contribution to three amazing relevant projects.
We teamed up with Hulme Garden Centre, a community initiative based in Manchester to provide saplings which were placed on each table and dressed with fairy lights. All 70 table centres used were donated to the Royal Horticultural Society’s Garden Bridgewater.
We pride ourselves on these awards not being formulaic and regimented. We aim to surprise the audience – for our 25th anniversary our theme was steampunk. Guests were greeted with stilt performers with giant mechanical wings, and cog-inspired gyroscopic hoops, while Clattariti musicians played industrial age junk instruments. Alongside the local beers and the wonderful No-Oasis was an incredible Victorian funfair.
