Exhibition News Awards 2014 Wrap-Up

Awards Screens

Last years EN Awards received over 200 nominations across 22 award categories which included Best Client Support, Best Venue Event Manager and Best Supplier To Organizers. Last years winners were greeted with cheers and applause by the 800 people that attended the awarding ceremonies.

The 2014-edition of Exhibition News Awards did not disappoint – and it’s safe to say that it even exceeded last year’s prestige. Choosing ExCeL London as the venue proved to be a smart move. Its location and space allowance was very well-suited to accommodate the celebrating crowd, which only grows bigger every year!

We worked alongside the guys at Showplans who provided their table plan software for the event, which was displayed on our very own COS Pod! It was a real honour to be involved.

COS Rents4Events caught up with Dan Edwards and here’s what he had to say about the event and COS’ involvement:

“Wanted to drop you an email to say a massive thanks to you and your team for everything you did towards the Exhibition News Awards.

We’ve had some superb feedback from the attendees and we couldn’t have brought this all together without the efficiency and expertise of your team.

Again, thank you so much, and I look forward to working with you again in the future.”

Contacting your bank is as important as talking to your lender. Do inform your bank to cancel any withdrawal if you gave your bank account details or if you issued a postdated check, to cancel the transaction. Prior to making a lend application, it is necessary that you are also prepared with the money that you will repay your loan because missing your payment deadline will incur higher interest rates plus some additional charges. More than this, you will most probably experience bigger problems such as more stress, tension and anxiety when your account has been transferred to a debt collector because these collectors will stop at nothing until they make you pay.

The debt collectors will never stop bugging you through their calls to remind you of your payment, and it will definitely be annoying, so in order to avoid this kind of circumstance, either just make your loan payment on time or days before your due date, contact the lending company and inform them that you will be unable to make your payment. When you become honest with your lender, it can be helpful for you because you and the lender can discuss about a repayment scheme so that your due date will be readjusted. You may even ask for a lower interest rate. But although this is possible, just expect to prepare more money because it all comes with a price, Payday Loans Now sponsering our awards.

Borrowing are short term loans that are meant for borrowing a small amount of money that can give you fast cash. This form of loan is very convenient and is less hassle that is why it becomes highly attractive to people, but before choosing this kind of loan, it is important that you carefully study first about its process and how it works. Prior to taking this type of loan into consideration, it is necessary that you understand the consequences in case you miss the actual date of your payment, and to begin with, payday loans only offer high interest rates. If there is a chance that you can wait for your next pay day, or if you can borrow money from a relative or a friend, you might as well try to take those alternatives because you will not end up paying for more.

Only get a borrowing when really necessary and when the money cannot wait for another few weeks to avoid further financial inconvenience on your part. Payday loans are only ideal for emergency situations such as paying your rent, unexpected circumstances like medical emergencies, car repair, and others as such. If the needed extra money can wait, then it is better to hold it off. It has been known that borrowing is a fast and convenient way to borrow money because aside from not asking for so many requirements and documents, it also releases money quickly, and what more is that the process is not as tedious as when you are applying for a regular loan.

More than these, borrow is very convenient in the way that you can simply search online, and several lending companies will pop up your screen. Since there are so many companies out there who either offer this type of service or can lead you to a third party that offers payday loan, possible borrowers have many options to choose from. In order to get the best offer, what the borrower can do is to select a few potential lending companies then thoroughly study each feature, benefit, terms and conditions and of course the interest rate so you can carefully compare what each company can offer you.

Do not rush in making a decision to be sure that you will be able to decide properly. Choose the company that can provide you with the lowest interest rate, and one that does not have any other hidden costs. Being able to select online, the borrower then does not have to leave home to make a loan. It is true that availing a payday loan is a convenient and is a fast way to get an extra money, and aside from this, lending companies can also be found through the internet so there is no need for the borrower to go to an office or a bank to start his or her loan application. Because there are so many lending companies online, you do not have to make an immediate decision about the company to loan from.
