    EXSA-LLENCE Awards Function

    On Friday 31st January EXSA in conjunction with AAXO hosted the 2019 EIA awards at Gallagher Convention Centre. Our theme this year was James Bond and many people turned up in their finest, some copying the suave Mr. Bond and his array of Bond girls, whilst others thought being a villain was far more exciting.

    The success of an evening such as this is always dependent on the teams that pull everything together.  The list is a long one, but very important, without any of your input nothing would have been possible.

    Firstly, a huge THANK YOU to all our sponsors for the evening:

    Gallagher Convention Centre for the use of their venue and support staff, who are absolutely amazing and made everything seamless

    Unlimited Events ensured that the Hall was picture perfect and looked like we were walking into a Bond movie

    Brandex and EPH for the amazing Audio Visual, the big screens and wonderful images meant everyone got a clear picture of the high standards of our members’ work.

    Barmotion got everyone in the mood for a good party with their many, creative versions of Martini’s, even including the standard ‘’Shaken, not stirred’’ option.  They then sobered everyone up for the journey home with an assortment of coffees.
