The .eu Awards Ceremony took place on the 19th of November at the Museum of Natural Sciences in Brussels where 130 guests (including representatives of the nominees and their respective registrars) congregated to see six .eu domain name holders presented with a prestigious award and a media package worth 5 000 EUR for their outstanding .eu websites.
