Organised by Informa under the management of The Special Event show, the award was designed to distinguish an events industry employer that has created a stimulating and supportive workplace with well-motivated, highly skilled employees. This is a testament to the company's leadership and commitment to its people, who are the key building blocks of its quality assurance.
"We are a people business and are very proud of every employee in our company", said N&M's managing director, Alex Ostermaier. "It was an absolute honour to be a recipient of this award. This recognition has certainly raised the bar for our organisation and has driven us forward in our on-going quest to be the best company to work for. We are grateful to the individuals behind the Middle East Special Event & Exhibition Show Awards for acknowledging our efforts in our personnel management".
He also dedicated this accolade to their current and future clients, assuring them that they are working alongside the right people, with the right attitude, trained and developed to a high standard. "This validates our trust-based relationship with our clients and partners. With our people in the forefront, we are conveying to our clients that we are worth the trust they gave us over the years and look forward to sharing continued success with them in the future", Ostermaier added.
This came at an exciting time as the company is strengthening its presence in semi-permanent and permanent AVL system integration aiming towards EXPO 2020 Dubai and other international installation projects. Head of the business unit, Felix Erdmann commented: "Our focus is on building a long-term partnership with clients from the concept phase through to the operation and maintenance stages. We would like to be their turnkey partner for design & build services and we would like them to see that the people they rely on during that long period are not only passionate but happy about their work and their workplace".
MESE is the only trade show dedicated to the MICE specialists in the Middle East. This year's event showcased a two-day education and networking sessions, exhibition, and a gala awards night, which paid tribute to the outstanding achievements of the professionals in the industry.
Aside from the Best Employer of the Year, N&M was also shortlisted for one of the other major categories for 3 years in a row, the Best Supplier of the Year, the award they brought home back in 2015.
