The reason for focusing on digital at this year’s awards was to recognise the increasing role it plays in a venue brand’s growth. The figures speak for themselves, with over 404 million Europeans online in September alone and consumers spending 6.7 billion hours on social networks in October. The award categories highlighted the impact of social presence on search, which remains hugely important as over 95% of us only click on search results displayed on the first page. (Sources included: comScore)

"Search is increasingly dependant on a brand's social authority and social authority is built through social media engagement, blogging, SEO and so on. This is what optimises ROI in digital and what makes it even more important to highlight the value of excellence in digital communications by our member venues."

— Prestigious Venues founder Habib Amir further elaborated with his opening speech at the awards.
