Awards Ceremony 2023
The Awards dinner and ceremony will follow the SIXTEEN:NINE ISE Mixer and combined Welcome drinks for the Awards ticket holders. This will take place from 6.00pm on Thursday February 2, 2023 at the Esferic Events Center, Montjuic, Barcelona, when drinks and canapés will be served to stave off any post-exhibition day hunger pangs. The Mixer and Welcome drinks will take place on the ground floor level of Esferic and will be followed by the Awards dinner for Finalists, sponsors and judges at 8.00pm on the second level.
Because canapés will be served with drinks at the Mixer/Welcome, we expect to offer a two-course dinner of very high calibre, so that the start of the Awards ceremony does not stretch away into the far reaches of the evening. Ideally, the Awards ceremony will start promptly at 9.30pm and last for no more than 60 minutes.
Subject to attendance levels, sponsorship and timings, the Awards’ organisers aim to host an After Glow – after-show networking and drinks with ambient music to round off the evening.
The booking forms are open for those who wish to attend the Awards and you can elect to pay in US dollars, Euros or GB pounds. You can go direct to the booking form selector here.
The Esferic Events Center is a beautiful venue but it is not enormous. If you wish to be sure of your places at the Awards dinner and ceremony, including attending the SIXTEEN:NINE Mixer and Welcome drinks, please book as soon as you can.
As many of you know, 2022 was a troubled year for the Awards and the organisers apologised for being so profoundly affected by events beyond their control. They are still tidying up a few matters from 2022, including final distribution of some trophies and making some refunds. All these matters will be dealt with as speedily as possible in the next 2-3 weeks.
Finalist companies for 2023 will receive their Finalist logos in the next few days, together with an email explaining which of their entries have progressed to the second and final stage judging.
