The best use of technology at an event award at the Event Production Show.

18th February 2022

Our erica energy management tool wins best use of technology at an event at the Event Production Show, we are all so excited about the award and is a fantastic recognition of the hard work behind the smart technology.

Recognising the outstanding work of individuals and teams behind the successful delivery of outdoor and live events during the past 12 months, the Event Production Awards on 17 February saw 21 companies and individuals walk away with well-deserved trophies. Hosted by stand-up comedian and presenter Glenn Moore, the Event Production Awards saw one of the industry’s most experienced and best liked event professionals honoured for his relentless commitment and services to the industry.

To one of the biggest roars of approval of the night, Steve Heap took to the stage to collect the Access All Areas Industry Legend award. Heap has been the general secretary of the Association of Festival Organisers since its launch in 1987, and was the director of Towersey Festival for 45 years up until 2019 when he retired. Among the other big winners at the ceremony, held at Novotel London West, were Standon Calling Festival and We Organise Chaos for Full Event Production of the Year. The independently owned, 17,000-capacity, festival celebrated its 15th anniversary on 22-25 July last year – just three days after full capacity events were given the green light on 19 July.


Explaining the choice, an EPA judge said, “Delivering the festival on the back of a pandemic and in the midst of a pingdemic was a truly challenging set of circumstances. Achieving success was a considerable feat and is one which set parameters within which other festivals could operate.”

The categories were judged by more than half a dozen events specialists including GL events UK managing director Scott Jameson, We Are The Fair director Yasmin Galletti, Association of Independent Festivals CEO Paul Reed and Global Infusion Group CEO Bonnie May.

Introducing the awards, Access editor Christopher Barrett said, “It’s been a remarkably challenging year for the events industry, making these awards more deserved and hard won than ever.”
