The annual prestigious awards commemorate and celebrate the best and the greatest in all thing’s events, exhibitions, and experiences. With an expert judging panel, the industry’s leading company’s and agencies come together to share our latest innovations and designs. 

The team has a global track record for transforming physical and digital spaces into inspirational and immersive brand experiences following on from our double win at the World Resilience Awards earlier this year read all about it:

This time we were honoured to have received six awards including the top platinum slots for Best Digital Innovation for a Client, Best Stand at Travel & Tourism Event and Best Stand at an Aviation Event .

The winning project for the Best Stand at Travel & Tourism Event involves our multi-faceted design strategy for Qatar Airways at the 2019 ITB event in Berlin, the travel industry’s premier showcase. A contemporary, luxurious, and elegant brand experience, reflecting Qatar Airways progressive and confident brand values, heritage, and luxurious award-winning brand. The result was cited as the show-stopping experience of the 2019 event, involving a dramatic kabuki drop reveal of the 200sqm double deck stand to launch Qatar Airways’ enhanced Economy Class to an audience of dignitaries and VIPs.

The Dassault Systémes Virtual Experience won another platinum for Best Digital Innovation for a Client award to add to its double win at the World Resilience Awards World earlier this year. When the Farnborough International Airshow was cancelled in 2020, Cook + Associates applied a transformational approach to turn Dassault Systémes’ (DS) physical business chalet into a virtual immersive alternative, delivering a memorable experience and seamless online engagement.

Also in the aviation area was a platinum award for Best Stand at an Aviation Event for Schneller at Aircraft Interiors Expo 2019- have a read all about it here.
