The Short Stay Show picked up the Best Trade Launch Event 2019 at the Independent Event Organisers Award ceremony last Friday (11 Oct).

The award ceremony which is run by event industry publisher – Exhibition News – celebrates independent event formats, organisers and teams.

The Short Stay Show which launched at ExCeL London earlier this year is the leading event for the emergent short stay economy which is the fastest growing trend in the world of accommodation, hospitality, travel and tourism.

Jim Curry, Co-Founder of Short Stay Show, said “Diane and I are delighted to win this award which was shortlisted against some strong competitors. The short stay industry is an incredibly exciting sector to serve and one which is undergoing phenomenal growth and investment.

“To win this award is a massive honour for us and the delivery of this launch event was only possible with the support of our awesome list of industry partners who we can’t thank enough. The Short Stay Show is returning to ExCeL next year and we are already over twice as big and heading for another sell-out show. This is on top of launches in Barcelona next month and Berlin in 2020.

“The EN Indy Awards is fantastic platform focussed on rising stars and next generation shows. Thanks to Julian, Liz, Duncan, Saul and the whole Exhibition News team for delivering an excellent event.”
