Event Awards Winners Announced

The 2015 Australian Event Awards Ceremony at Doltone House Jones Bay Wharf on Tuesday proved an exciting night full of swinging tunes, iconic Australian voices and, of course, celebration of the best the Australian events industry has to offer.

Hosted by Catriona Rowntree from Saxton Speakers Bureau, the night featured an Entertainment Showcase by SMA Productions, including their new act Swoon, the Man Men of Swing. Katie Noonan also performed a beautiful set just before dinner.

23 Event Awards were presented throughout the night alongside two Lifetime Achievement Awards recognising the exceptional and enduring contributions of Ron Walker AC CBE and Staging Rentals and Construction founder and director Meri Took.

South Australia was declared Australia's best region for events for the first time, taking home the 2015 State or Territory Award. South Australian events won EVENTelec Best Cultural, Arts or Music Event and Coates Hire Best Community Event.

The other Best Event Categories were well spread across the country, with Western Australia and Victoria both nabbing two each, Queensland winning one and New South Wales taking home three.

In the Achievement categories, there was a great mix of Australian and international work amongst the winners.
