The Market People Awards & Venetian Ball 2018

The Market People Awards 2018 - what a wonderful evening!

Over 170 professionals from across the London Market gathered at the incredible One Moorgate Place on 14th November with their masks for the Venetian themed Market People Awards, arranged by London Market Forums in association with Market People Magazine.

The fun filled extravaganza with amazing musical entertainment, delicious cuisine and 15 incredible winners was our biggest ever. We were proud to raise several thousand pounds from a live auction and prize draw for the remarkable charity, Kids Inspire.
