A more interactive and social MCV Awards for 2018 – running times announced

There’s a lot of things changing at the MCV awards this year – making them more competitive, more rigorous and also more fun – which means we’re making some significant changes to the big evening itself.

That means we are introducing a new event format. Listening to feedback we’ve made the sit-down portion of the meal shorter, reduced the number of award categories to be presented in a faster format and so created a more interactive, social evening focused on networking and having fun whilst also celebrating the achievements of your industry!

6pm – 7.30pm: Arrival drinks reception and canapes

We have extended the drinks reception, which means more time for you to meet your colleagues and get into the party spirit! To kick off the evening complimentary canapes will be served alongside a selection of drinks with live entertainment included.

7.30pm – 8.30pm: Dinner is served

Make your way up to the Awards room where your main course and table drinks will be served. Time for a bit of a rest with your colleagues before the awards ceremony to follow!

8.30pm – 9.45pm: MCV Awards Ceremony

The 16th annual MCV Awards Ceremony commences, recognising the deserved winners across 19 streamlined categories.

9.45pm – 2.00am: After party and dessert time

Head back downstairs to the after party where you can savour some delicious treats from our dessert stations and continue celebrating on the dancefloor! A fully stocked cash-bar will also be ready and waiting!

2.00am: That’s all folks!

Time to head home and get some well-deserved rest or head on out for an after–after party if you prefer!

If you have any questions about the new format then please give myself or the events team a shout.
