The awards, which are judged by a host of industry leaders and clients recognise the best venues in the country across a range of categories. 

Imago Venues – the commercial arm of Loughborough University received the award against stiff competition from several other leading universities and academic venue providers.

Kay England, chief executive of Imago Venues and director of campus services at Loughborough University commented: “This accolade rewards far more than the quality of our venue, it goes to the heart of who we are and what we do – our people.  Our entry was focused on the dedication and hard work delivered each and every day by our whole team and I am delighted that the judges recognised this when reviewing the entries. 

"As an integral part of Loughborough University we benefit from world leading facilities, infrastructure and investment that allows us to go from strength to strength.  In return we consistently bring big named clients and events to Loughborough, providing an economic impact to the University and town as a whole.  Congratulations to our whole team, this is very well deserved.”
