Scotland’s newest live events venue, P&J Live, has been named Venue of the Year - more than 20,000sqm, fending off stiff competition from other shortlisted entrants: ADNEC – Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Centre, ExCeL London, RAI Amsterdam, SEC – Scottish Events Campus, The NEC and The O2 in London.

Nick Waight, Managing Director, at P&J Live, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have picked up this award, especially being such a new venue operationally, while other venues have been open for decades.

“We are lucky to offer a state-of-the-art venue, but the real event delivery is down to the dedicated team of experts in-house who help make the event a reality, and the support of our operating company, ASM Global. P&J Live’s team are extremely people-focused, placing great importance on an excellent client customer journey every time.

“Event organisers and promoters enjoy a seamless experience from sales pitch to event planning and delivery, as well as post-event. The team very much believes in making small things matter to enable big things to happen.”

The venue had to prove its credentials within an entry submitted to a large panel of judges, which examined market conditions, growth, communication, people and culture and restart and reimagine – maximising a successful post-covid relaunch through marketing campaigns, digital strategy, defined processes and procedures to deliver the best customer service and experience.
