Silverstone Circuits Limited is celebrating after it was announced that the Silverstone Wing, the circuit’s state-of-the-art event, exhibition and conference facility, has been shortlisted for the ‘Venue of the Year’ Award by the Association of Event Organisers (AEO).
Having attracted over 100 new clients since its opening in May 2011, The Wing has been recognised as a rising star in the industry. Set in the heart of the world famous Grand Prix Circuit, overlooking the start / finish line, the unique Silverstone Wing has been shortlisted alongside venues such as the O2, The NEC and ExCeL.
Richard Phillips, Managing Director of Silverstone Circuits Limited, said, “We are delighted the Silverstone Wing has been shortlisted for the Venue of the Year. The facility is a crowning achievement for Silverstone and it is fantastic to think that we are in the same league as other, more established venues, after our first year.”
Sales Manager for The Wing, Daniel Whittemore, commented, “The Wing has attracted clients from across the industry spectrum, including creative and public events, exhibitions and conferences. It is clear that the industry is as excited about The Wing’s unique offering as we are and we are very proud to have been shortlisted for this Award by the Association of Event Organisers.”
The awards will be presented at a gala dinner held in July at the Artillery Gardens at the Honourable Artillery Company in London. This flagship ceremony for the live events and exhibition industry will be attended by over 1,000 events industry professionals, all vying for the top slot in their respective categories.
