EN Indy Awards

   indy awards


The EN Indy Awards & Conference returned in 2023 for the fourth annual edition with the addition of a new marketplace expo. The awards are dedicated to recognising the achievements of independent show organisers, teams and individuals, and the conference is dedicated to exploring the key challenges facing independent organisers through a series of panel debates and roundtables.

The exhibition industry is ever-changing, and smaller organisations are crucial to its future success. The EN Indy Awards was launched to allow these shows and companies an environment to showcase their talent and successes against similar organisations.




It is completely free to enter the EN Indy Awards, and you're allowed to enter as many as you like, so long as you meet the submission criteria. Each award-winning organiser will win two EN 100 Memberships, which includes free access to our events, editorial promotions and exclusive opportunities that only our Top EN 100's can attend. Our process consists of three simple steps that you need to be aware of.

Submissions are now closed 




Am I an Indy Organiser?

In an industry often dominated by large global companies, independent organisers are those not backed by private equity or part of a wider mix of businesses.

The indy organisers stand alone, are not part of a group of companies and are not backed by public or private investment.

The EN Indy Awards gives these smaller companies the chance to compete on equal terms and to highlight their outstanding events, along with the talented individuals who bring them to life.

2023 Exhibitors


New to 2023, the EN Indy Expo will be a focal point for attendees. This exciting new element brings you a marketplace of exhibitor pods perfect for sourcing new suppliers vital to the success of your event.
