BBC Haymarket Exhibitions take home Best Consumer Show at AEO Awards

Congratulations to BBC Haymarket Exhibitions after BBC Gardeners’ World Live and The BBC Good Food Show Summer walked away with the Best Consumer Show prize at last Friday’s Association of Event Organisers (AEO) Excellence Awards Ceremony.

Held at London’s Artillery Gardens and hosted by British actor Stephen Mangan, the glittering award ceremony was attended by over 1000 events industry professionals. Decided by a panel of distinguished judges, this year’s awards was the most competitive yet more entries submitted than ever before.

Laura Biggs, Managing Director BBC Haymarket Exhibitions, said on the award success: ‘We are absolutely delighted to win The AEO Best Consumer Show for BBC Gardeners’ World Live and The BBC Good Food Show Summer. Our visitors and exhibitors have been telling us that they love our shows - so it is great to also get industry recognition for these fantastic events.’

A part of Haymarket’s Exhibitions division, for the last five years BBC Gardeners’ World Live and The BBC Good Food Show Summer have brought together the best in food and gardening and merged them together to make one of the most exciting and fun packed days out of the summer.

This win adds to what had already been a highly successful year for the event, which in 2011, despite the difficult economy, received a phenomenal 12% increase in paid gate.
