Award-winning work by Swindon event director puts him among industry A-listers

April 28, 2016

Swindon-based event director Andy Edwards is celebrating after appearing in a prestigious annual ‘A-list’ of the industry’s top 35 event professionals aged 35 and under.

Andy, pictured, who works for the South Marston office of Capita Travel and Events, heard of his inclusion in the list when he attended its launch event in London earlier this week.

The list is compiled by industry magazine Conference and Incentive Travel (C&IT) to showcase the achievements of young trailblazers.

Part of Andy’s nomination was based on his work in managing a customer event that won ‘Energy and Utilities Event of the Year’ at the coveted C&IT Awards last September.

Capita Travel and Events director of events Kim Collins said: “Andy is well respected by our customers and colleagues, supporting them to deliver creative, immersive and memorable events.

“We’re really proud that he’s made the list and we’re delighted that C&IT continues to recognise and promote the skills and expertise of event professionals and the event industry as a whole.”

The launch was held at Landing Forty Two in The Leadenhall Building, London’s highest dedicated conference and event space.

Derby-headquartered Capita Travel & Events set up its Swindon office – one of seven across England – in 2013 after buying local firm Venues Event Management.
