Covid Permitting, the Australian Event Awards 2020 will be staged in Adelaide at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre on the 21 st of October. We really hope we will be able to do this, and we are excited to bring the Awards to Adelaide, if we can.
We’re currently appointing leading experts in public events, corporate events, event services and event management to lead the judges through the judging process and review the finalists.
We recognise that events have had to change this year so we’ve opened up the awards to events delivered online or in ways that are different or innovative. The entry period remains the same, any events staged from the 1st July 2019 to the 30th June 2020 are able to enter.
We are bringing back Australian Event of the Year which recognises an event that excels against the criteria of its category and demonstrates an outstanding example of innovation and best practice in the events industry.
This award is not open to direct entries, instead finalists in this category will consist of the National Winners of each of the Best Event Categories. This means that any National Winners have the chance of winning a second award without having to enter twice. Find out more.
In order to recognise the difficulties facing the industry in the current climate, we have reduced entry costs for businesses across the industry.
We’ve been hard at work with the judging panel to simplify the criteria and create a guided entry form to help you address the things that the judges want to see.
See the full list of Key Dates here and make sure you put them in your diary to maximise your schedule and budget.
