The Official International Directory Enquiries Industry Awards proved to be a massive success once again.
The International Directory Enquiries Awards and Conference has been firmly established as the official occasion for the industry to celebrate all of the positive aspects of the market and best practice.
The 5* Lowry Hotel in Manchester was the perfect meeting place for the best European and International Directory Services. This year's intensive conference challenged and inspired all delegates with insight from around the world and motivational talks from leaders in their fields. All feedback forms have been received and next year's event looks set to be even bigger and better to reflect the needs of the industry.
