The champagne corks were popping on Friday night with great gusto as our very own AV Manager; Kevin McLoughlin won the highly acclaimed award for AV professional of the year at the AV Magazine AV awards. We also celebrated as our very talented AV team were highly commended in the AV service team of the year category.
The award is aimed at recognising best practice, innovation and excellence within the AV industry and we are so thrilled to have won this year as we were up against some really strong competition. The team lost out to the global team from Bloomberg but were very proud to have been classed above those who won in 2014 and 2015.
The evening was held in the distinguished Great Room at the Grosvenor House Hotel in Park Lane and the awards were hosted and presented by Colin Murray.
‘Obviously I am extremely proud to win the individual award but I think this is also acknowledgment of the great team I work with and the support I receive from my employers.Customer feedback plays an important part in our success, but just as important is the level of investment in new technology by The Royal Society of Medicine at 1 Wimpole Street matching a great team with the tools to deliver amazing experiences for those attending conferences and meetings with us.’ said Kevin of his award and his teams’ backing Nigel Collett, Director of 1 Wimpole Street said ‘We are thrilled that Kevin has won this award and indeed to have the entire AV team be highly commended.
