The Association for Project Management won best large conference for the second year running at the Association Excellence Awards in London on Friday.
The APM Project Management Conference has added to the title it won last year when it was crowned Best Development of an Existing Association Event – over 300 attendees for its Myth Busting themed event.
Conference chair and APM board member Sue Kershaw collected the award from ceremony host Justin Webb, along with APM’s senior marketing events co-ordinator Tuli Colmenares and marketing manager Dayner Proudfoot.
Sue puts the event’s success down to a collaborative effort: “It is fantastic for APM to win this award for the second year running, and this is a real testament to the calibre of the in-house team, the volunteers on the conference panel and the support from across the association.
“This shows APM at its best: a truly professional organisation with its membership at the heart of everything it does.”
‘Best in class’
The award judges described the APM Conference as “best in class” and said that “this was an excellent result from a very small team. The analysis and strategic thinking were exceptional.”
The association was shortlisted across the same four categories at the event last year where APM picked up the awards for Best UK Association and Best Association Conference in London.

Over 400 association professionals attended the ceremony to see individuals and organisations celebrated for their innovation and unrivalled dedication to serving their membership through all aspects of their operation.
Association Excellence Awards organiser Rory Ross Russell said: “Once again these awards have highlighted the excellence and hard work of the association sector.
“These associations continually deliver quality and value to their members, often under challenging circumstances.
“To be able to bring recognition for their dedication can only strengthen their position, and the value they add to all businesses and individuals in their sectors.”
