The event, which is expected to attract more than 1,000 guests, will take place in the Great Room, and will feature 18 award categories with winners picking up their gongs on the night.

Karim Halwagi, AEO’s chief executive, said: "The AEO Excellence Awards is the most important and prestigious event that celebrates our industry's achievements. Winning an award or just being shortlisted enhances both personal and corporate reputations and there’s no better way to raise your company’s profile than being acknowledged as an award-winning organisation."

Olympia London and Freeman have also been announced as the headline sponsors in 2014, for the second year in a row.

Last year's AEO Excellence Awards were held at Old Billingsgate and were hosted by comedian Mark Dolan and featured entertainment from ventriloquist Nina Conti.
