The UK Digital Experience Awards 2017 are to take place at London’s Wembley Stadium in what promises to be one of the most thrilling industry events this year.

Celebrating the very best in organisations that offer an exceptional digital experience for their valued customers, the awards will now be hosted earlier than planned at the famous London venue on November 22, in conjunction with the UK Business Awards

Finalists will compete in 18 categories for awards including best Omni-Channel Experience, best SEO, and best Mobile Strategy.

Entrants will be scrutinized by a judging panel featuring some of the sharpest industry minds, who will be examining the businesses’ digital experience portfolio and scoring according to strict criteria.

The gala event – which is being held by Awards International with the valued support of partners Barnardo’s, CXM, and Cranfield School of Management – is also shaping up to be one of the calendar’s key networking opportunities, ensuring that every attendee walks away with something valuable, even if it’s not one of the sought-after awards trophies.

Following the announcement of this year’s finalists, Awards International CEO Neil Skehel said: “Digital Experience is fast becoming one of the most important fields for businesses right across the globe. Today’s customers expect a lot from firms when it comes to offering a digital pathway, and if they can’t keep up they will be left behind.

“These awards are a way of showcasing the most innovative and exceptional firms, whose Digital Experience for customers is second-to-none at a time of rapid change and ruthless competition.

“It’s also fantastic to be able to bring the DX Awards to a new and bigger venue, the world-famous Wembley Stadium. It’s going to be a hugely exciting day for celebrating what makes UK businesses among the best on Earth for communication with their customers.”
