Our inaugural gala dinner celebration, London, March 2017
A spectacular gala evening was held on Wednesday 22 March at the DoubleTree by Hilton, Tower of London, in London, UK.
As well as announcing the winners, the evening offered the perfect opportunity to network and learn from each other. We celebrated the fantastic variety of achievements and experiences in the diverse field of e-assessment: where schools can learn from doctors, where researchers can make direct links with industry suppliers, where the diverse story of e-assessment can truly unfold.
The Gala awards experience began with a drinks reception on the mezzanine balcony overlooking the hotel lobby, followed by a fabulous 3 course dinner, interspersed with the winners presentations and a keynote from Mike Dawe.
Held on the evening of the first day of the two-day e-Assessment Question, the 15th annual conference and exhibition organised by Assessment Tomorrow, in the nearby America Square Conference Centre.
"I am delighted to have been asked by the Chairman of e-Assessment Association to give my reflections on developments in the e-Assessment industry as a part of the Awards ceremony on 22 March.
The awards are an important opportunity to celebrate, and showcase, what’s successful and exciting in our area of work and I am looking forward to learning from the experiences of new and old colleagues at the event."
