Other finalists include big-league contenders including L’Oreal, Kellogg’s, Virgin Media, the Blackpool Illuminations Switch-on and The Barclays Premier League Trophy Tour.
In the categories chosen, the College is shortlisted against Cycling Scotland, Events Cornwall and Sky Sports in the Education category and Sheffield Chamber of Commerce, Talk Talk and Year of the IAStival in the In-House category.
Steve Knowles, Marketing Events Manager at Leeds City College, said:
“We always endeavour to aim high with College events, to bring new innovations each time and build on previous successes while improving where possible. As a flagship event, the Student Awards is always one of the year’s highlights, but we really felt that our 2012 ceremony surpassed anything we had ever done before.
“To have this notion confirmed by the UK Events Awards and be double finalists in a national events competition in such illustrious company is unbelievable, and is testament to the many people involved.”
The winners will be announced at the glittering UK Event Awards 2012 final which will take place Friday 23 November at the home of Arsenal FC – The Emirates Stadium, London.
