The glamorous highlight of the European Excellence Awards was the gala ceremony, where more than 450 communications professionals came together to celebrate the best in PR over the last year. In 2014, the European Excellence Awards was held in the Maison de la Mutualité in Paris on December 4, 2014.
During the gala ceremony at the Maison de la Mutualité, we were honouring this year’s winners of the European Excellence Awards in the extraordinary ambience. Our presenter Karin Helmstaedt was leading through an outstanding gala ceremony, which was accompanied by a colourful entertainment programme. A seated dinner of three courses provided the opportunity to network with the best and finest representatives of European PR and communications.
This was the first time that the European Excellence Awards was staged in Paris. The French capital has always been a cultural, political and academic centre. This is why Paris makes the perfect location for this year’s Excellence Awards.
The Maison de la Mutualité is one of the emblems of historic Paris. Built in 1929, the unique building has been the headquarters of the federation of nonprofit mutual insurers. It has hosted many international events, and, due to the Theatre‘s renowned acoustics, Charlie Chaplin recorded music here. Today, the venue aims to perpetuate its tradition and reputation as a leading meeting centre.
