Centurion Award winners
AEO Centurion Award

A special award for the venue at the Association of Event Organises Centenary.

The venue has received many recognitions throughout its 136 years for its expertise, location, sustainability and heritage, to name just a few. But there is something extra special about a lifetime recognition for consistency and quality: the Venue of the Century award was voted for by key events industry figures within the Association of Event Organisers.

Founded in 1921, the association commemorated its centenary by gathering the events industry to celebrate its history and recognise innovation, tenacity and business acumen. For a hundred years, its work has ensured collaboration across the industry, support its members, and influence the Government to safeguard the industry.

Thanks to its contribution, the UK events industry today is a multi-billion-pound business and a global leader with unrivalled high standards. The association has evolved its attention to encompass sustainability and drive even higher standards.

Olympia London is proud to have been part of the association’s rich history from inception and thrilled at being recognised with such a prestigious accolade.
