Thank you to everyone who submitted a blog to the Eventprofs Blog Awards! We received over 40 submissions and have seen some fantastic event industry sites. Over the weekend the judging panel reviewed the submissions to ensure they were in the correct categories and met the award guidelines. Although there was a phenomenal list of blogs to choose from, the submissions were short-listed to a maximum of 7 per category.
