The inaugural CN Agency Awards took place on Thursday 21 March at London’s Cafe De Paris. The event was a glamorous celebration recognising the agencies that work behind the scenes of the events industry. After nominations in Best Small Agency and Client Team of the Year, we were awarded the trophy for Client Team of the Year, recognising our work with Dynamo North East. BeaconHouse work with the board at Dynamo to set up, launch, manage and deliver the inspirational Dynamo Conference, exclusive Board Members Dinner and hugely popular Dynamites Awards. Alongside managing the membership, BeaconHouse also organise Member Networking events and have helped shape and deliver a sustainable, thriving membership network, offering real benefit to members and the NE IT sector.
Every year C&IT recognises top talent under 35 years old in the A-List and BeaconHouse Director Catherine Coulter was selected for the class of 2019. Judges were impressed with Catherine’s story launching BeaconHouse Events in her twenties and growing the company to the go-to event agency in the North East. Recent clients include AkzoNobel, Dentsu Aegis, European Thyroid Association, True Potential, Great Run Company, Atomicon, The Department for Culture, Media and Sport, and Great Exhibition of the North working with key stakeholders Accenture, Cisco and LNER. The BeaconHouse portfolio ranges from award ceremonies to outdoor festivals and international conferences featuring notable speakers such as Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of England and Bruce Daisley, European VP for Twitter.
Speaking of the award wins, Catherine said “A fantastic achievement for the team at BeaconHouse – two wins which not only recognise our quality delivery for clients, but also acknowledge the work across the company, building a thriving Events Management Agency in the North East. We were so delighted to just be shortlisted, but these wins acknowledge the hard work put in by the whole team across the last 12 months, we are very proud to be based in Newcastle but making a national impact.’’
