Australian Event Awards Finalists Announced!

Finalists have been announced, the Early Bird rate ends tomorrow, accommodation is booking up fast - it's time to put the Event Awards and Symposium at the top of your "To do" list!


Congratulations to our 2016 Finalists!

We're delighted to announce the National Finalists in 20 categories of this year's Event Awards.

As one of the co-chairs of the Judging Panel, Craig Hassall AM puts it, "Finalists this year continue to show how the Awards really do highlight not only the diversity of Australian events, but the possibilities of our unique landscape and how events promote and celebrate so many important causes and other industries."
