Event organisers, managers, agents and venue operators will be among those honoured at the 14th PRG Live Entertainment Awards.

The nominations are in for those across Germany, Switzerland and Austria, with awards presented at a gala event held at Frankfurt’s Festhalle on 1 April.

“The events business was largely steady in 2018,” says Prof Jens Michow, executive producer of the ceremony and president of promoters and agents association BDKV, which organises the event.

“It was a good season for the festival organisers with a dry summer and, at last, one without the severe weather that caused a lot of cancellations and interruptions in previous years.”

Among the categories are Festival of the Year, Venue Tour of the Year and Promoter of the Year.
