Mixology Awards 2020 – The Way Ahead
For the past 18 years, the Mixology Awards have recognised the very best projects, products and people in the commercial, hospitality and residential interior design industry.
These annual ceremonies in London and Manchester have established themselves as THE must-attend events for our community. We at Mix Interiors are so proud of the Mixology Awards and remain continually humbled by the positive support and response we receive from sponsors, entrants, judges and guests alike.
If you’d asked us eight weeks ago what our plan was for Mixology20 London, we would have proudly boasted that this June’s event was almost sold out and that this year’s esteemed judges had another tough challenge ahead of them, selecting winners from the largest pool of entrants ever. Then coronavirus struck and we now find ourselves with a dilemma – we have an exceptional list of finalists and winners but we can’t deliver this event to the scale and manner you have come to expect, whilst maintaining social distancing measures. The safety of our guests continues to be our number one business priority.
We have investigated the pros and cons of creating a virtual awards ceremony for you but, in all honesty, when we reflect on what makes Mixology the special occasion it is – the buzz and anticipation of the crowds at the drinks reception, spontaneous group celebrations, a packed dance floor in the company of superstar DJs such as Paul Oakenfold, Soul II Soul, Trevor Nelson, Grandmaster Flash and Pete Tong, to name but a few – we’re not sure it’s fair for the guests, sponsors, finalists and winners of 2020 to be offered a watered down version of this event as an alternative.
We have therefore decided to incorporate our 2020 awards into our 2021 ceremony.
We will host the Mixology Awards in London next June, recognising the shortlist and winners of both 2020 and 2021. Details on actual date and venue to follow.
Fear not entrants of Mixology 2020, we will announce all finalists in this July’s issue of Mix Interiors, so you will still get plenty of well-deserved bragging rights in between July and the event next year.
For those of you who had already booked your tickets for Mixology 20, we will of course honour your booking for next year’s event at this year’s rate and a huge thanks to all of you for your continued support. Click here for more details and to book tickets.
What about Mixology North Awards 2020 you ask?
We would love to be able to host an awards ceremony in Manchester this December, but need to monitor the Covid/social distancing measures closely over the next few weeks and will therefore make a definitive announcement on this before September.
A huge thank you to everyone who has been in touch expressing your support for the strategic changes we are having to make. These are challenging times for us all and whilst large scale events remains the cornerstone of our business, we are quite simply not prepared to compromise on your safety or the quality threshold you expect from us.
