“It’s a great privilege to organise the Event Awards and Symposium – a privilege made even greater this year by the opportunity to host it in Western Australia. It is certainly easy to see that Aussie events are in good hands in the West!”
Ian Steigrad, Managing Director, Australian Event Awards and Symposium
The Australian Event Awards celebrated this year’s Finalists and Winners with a elegance and poise on Australia’s Western coast. Lisa Woodbrook delighted us as the host for the evening, and there was a strong local line up of singers and performers.
We kicked off the evening with an outstanding welcome to country by Wadumbah Aboriginal Dance Group – what a fantastic start to the night! Then throughout the evening we were graced by the beautiful voices of Lisa Woodbrook, Chelsea Gibson and Billie Court, plus we can’t forget to mention the wonderful work of O Entertainment that performed a very colorful dance number after dinner break and DJ Martin who closed off the evening.
The judges have asked us to make specific comments about the quality of the nominees this year. The group is extremely strong and many of the categories that were announced tonight went down to the wire in the judging room. It is probably harder to become a nominee in the Event Awards than it is to become a Winner so to all the nominees tonight from all over Australia, a massive congratulations – the awards are about each and every one of you!
