CEI Asia’s Reader’s Choice Awards are back, and this year we’re dedicating the annual awards programme to the best individuals, venues and service providers in the business events industry here in Asia Pacific.

This year, the awards comprise two distinct elements: (1) a survey reserved strictly for event planners/buyers to vote for the best destinations, venues and services; and (2) an entry-based programme where all business event professionals can nominate outstanding individuals in the industry.

Entries are now open and we are calling on you, our readers, to have your say in the 2018 Readers’ Choice Awards—it’s free to enter and all participants will be in the running to win a two-night stay at the Shangri-La Resort & Spa in Boracay, with speedboat transfer to the hotel. Here are this year’s award categories:
