These prestigious awards, dubbed the exhibition industry Oscars, recognise achievements in producing the best events and exhibitions in the UK. Julie saw off stiff competition from rival exhibition organisers to scoop this award, which praised her direction of the Jewellery & Watch London and Jewellery & Watch Birmingham events.
Commenting on her award win Julie said: “I am absolutely delighted to have been selected as the winner of this important industry award. I have a fantastic team working with me on both Jewellery & Watch London and Birmingham and this award is also testament to them and the fantastic shows we have built.”
Julie headed-up the team which launched Jewellery & Watch London back in 2012 and under her leadership the show went on to see a 11% rise in visitor numbers in its second year and this year is relocating to a new venue of London’s iconic Saatchi Gallery in order to accommodate this growth.
Jewellery & Watch [http://www.jewelsnext.com/shop/index.php
]is now seen as a brand of shows in its own right with the Birmingham event being given its own identity separate from Spring Fair and branded in the same way as the London show in order to offer the Jewellery & Watch industry two shows held at crucial points in the buying calendar.
