Sophie Greatbanks has been awarded A-List status in the creative event industry by Conference and Incentive Travel Insight (C&IT) Magazine.

Picking up the award at a glitzy ceremony on Wednesday (8th November),  run in partnership with sponsor Oman Convention Bureau, Sophie was recognised for her talent and dedication to the industry, with a particular focus on creative retail events and conferences across the UK.

Working on a range of events from business seminars for 100 people, to international conferences for 1500 delegates, Sophie supports the team for all production needs. Winners were recognised by a diverse panel of industry experts based purely on their outstanding achievements.

Speaking about the accolade, Sophie, said: “It’s a real honour to be recognised by C&IT and be awarded amongst other hugely respected figures in the industry. At Meet and Potato we live and breath by producing the very best creative and immersive events for our clients so this has put a real spring in my step as we enter a hugely busy period.”

Having worked at his agency for over two years, CEO of Meet and Potato, Jon Kelly, added: “We know Sophie is fabulous at what she does and so do our clients, but for her to get national recognition from the industry is a real coup and truly deserved. I look forward to watching her grow from strength to strength with the business and watch her continue to excel.”

When asked which event she had been most proud of, Sophie replied: “ I produced a big conference for Dunelm at the start of last year (2022). It was a post-pandemic celebration and represented a complete transformation in the way that the business communicated to their people. It was a true collaboration with the client, and they were absolutely delighted with the results. It doesn’t hurt that it was also nominated for a C&IT award for best celebratory event too!”
