Magna shortlisted for two prestigious event industry awards

13 May 2019

For the second year running MAGNA have been shortlisted for two highly prestigious Corporate Hospitality Show Awards, one for Best Independent Venue and the other for Best Exhibition Facility.

This follows the success of last year when the Rotherham based conference and events venue scooped the coveted award for Best Unusual Event Space.

Now in its fifth year, the CHS Awards are widely recognised as one of the highest accolades for the hospitality and events industry. With hundreds of entries, the awards are judged by an independent panel of over 70 event professionals from leading agencies throughout the UK.

MAGNA Chief Executive Kevin Tomlinson said, ‘To be shortlisted for awards twice in two years is truly magnificent. All praise must go to the entire MAGNA team who work tirelessly to deliver excellence. We’re up against some stiff competition in both categories and keep our fingers crossed for another win to match last year’s success.”

Exhibitions held at MAGNA in the past year alone have included Get Up To Speed in STEM attended by 3,000 school age kids, Peaty’s Bike Bonanza started by local mountain bike legend Steve Peaty and the UKs largest horror convention HorrorCon.

MAGNA boasts 4,000m2 of event space located in the heart of the UK close to both Sheffield and Rotherham. Perfect for big and small events, a meeting for 30, dinner or conference for 400 or exclusive hire for 5,000. With 400 free car parking spaces, dedicated events team, on-site catering and in-house AV and exhibition services. There’s even in-house team building activities including a giant 25m long inflatable bootcamp, 40m high indoor bungee and life-size diggers.

The glittering CHS Awards ceremony will take place on Thursday 6 June in Leeds.
