MIA List 2017 Venue Team Winners
Team Towcester are the proud winners of the MIA List 2017 venue team of the year award
People are at the heart of the meetings and events industry; in fact, more than 530,000 of them are employed in the sector which is more than double that of the UK telecoms industry. Amongst these there are the good, the very good and the absolutely fantastic. It’s because our team are among those that are ‘absolutely fantastic’ individuals that we have won the Venue Team of the year award for 2017.
On Friday the 6th of October 2017, an excited few of our Team travelled to London to the MIA List 2017 Awards Ceremony. Knowing we had been shortlisted for Venue Team of the Year was a huge privilege in itself, but to actually win the award, when up against other well deserving candidates, was a true honour.
Our staff members share their thoughts on our achievement.
“I am immensely proud to be part of team Towcester from the beginning of our greyhound racing era. From where we started from to where we are now it has been a journey full of lessons and has helped shape my future career in the industry. Winning the award is a well deserved accolade for the team’s continuous hard work and enthusiasm within their roles.” – Charlotte Hopkins, Events Manager at Towcester Racecourse
“I am immensely proud of the team whom thoroughly deserve this award for all their achievements over the last 3 years. I set out with a vision in April 2014 for the type of service delivery I believe hospitality is about and with the help of Matt Allan (Hospitality Manager) we deliver it seamlessly day in and day out”. – Helen Deakin, General Manager of Towcester Racecourse.
“Winning this prestigious award means a great deal and is recognition of the hard work the team have put in, particularly over the last two and half years. It is a huge honour for us and I’m extremely proud of everyone who has contributed in helping us achieve this amazing accolade” – Kevin Ackerman, CEO of Towcester Racecourse.
