Stand Out is the leading industry publication for events professionals. In March it launched The Crystals 2020, an awards programme that doesn't include a judging panel but is voted on by events professionals themselves.

People were asked to vote for their favourite UK event and their favourite UK event supplier, with the top 15 in each category to be awarded a trophy.

Versatile came in 11th place in the category for favourite event supplier.

Tim Cook, Versatile’s managing director, said: "To be voted for by our peers and those in the know and come 11th in the voting is a huge achievement. Every edition of this magazine reaches about 13,000 people, so it really is the go-to publication for the industry, and it just shows that our years of hard work and commitment really have been noticed.

"It was a fantastic feeling when we were told where we’d placed, and it’s been great to be able to put a smile on the faces of everyone here at Versatile, particularly given how tough 2020 has been."
