In the Zone wins Creative Event of the Year

James with the award

Our 'In the Zone' exhibition has won the Creative Event of the Year award at the prestigious Event Awards 2013, run by Event Magazine.

The Touring Exhibition, designed and developed by At-Bristol Science Centre, beat Concerto Live, George P Johnson, RPM and Sledge to win the coveted award, in a competitive category that recognises events which have "surpassed all expectations".

The award ceremony took place on Friday 4th October at The Roundhouse in London, with In the Zone team members Dan Bird, Andy Coco and Amanda Kerin on hand to accept the award.

Dan Bird, At-Bristol's Exhibitions Director said: "We are absolutely thrilled to have won the coveted Creative Event of the Year award; it really was an excellent project to work on, and it's fantastic that the exhibition is being rewarded for its creative elements, especially when we were up against such stiff competition. We've experienced great success in connecting with the visitor both through the exhibition itself, and with the technology which allows them to continue the experience afterwards, so we're very proud of the team and everything that we've accomplished."

Clare Matterson, Director of Medical Humanities and Engagement at the Wellcome Trust, added: "In the Zone has been a fantastic initiative. From its earliest inception, in schools and on tour, and now at At-Bristol, it has engaged so many visitors with the science of sport and the body, and we are so delighted that it has won the Creative Event of the Year award. It really is a testament to the creativity of all the people involved who have made it such a success."
