Making a Big Deal About Small Events
Many events companies do incredible things with a small team and small budget. New in 2018, Best Small Event recognises events delivering an outstanding experience on a budget of $150K or less - it doesn't matter if you had 10 or 10,000 people, it just needs to be delivered within the $150K budget to be in the running. Will you be Australia's first Best Small Event?
Partner Feature: Tri-Point Rigging
Approaching their 20th birthday, our Rigging Partner Tri-Point Rigging is the entertainment rigging specialist, with over a century of rigging experience between their three directors across events, concert touring and television. Tri-Point Rigging's Victoria Garside explains, "we are a diverse blend of theatre and arty types, adventurous stunties, computer nerds and old school rock 'n rollers."
