The Australian Event Awards 2020 from Sydney.
“It’s a great achievement that we as an industry have been able to adapt to the changing times and we recognise that, for some, it has been an extremely difficult 12 months. We believe that the Australian Event Awards 2021 is an opportunity for the industry to band together, help each other, learn from others and celebrate our own.” Ian Steigrad, Managing Director of the Awards.
The Australian Event Awards ran a little differently in 2020 with four events held simultaneously across the country all linked up via video technology allowing the industry in each state to gather as one, including Victorian Finalists that were able to join via zoom.
The night included seven acts of incredible entertainment with RatPack Reloaded kicking off the show, Michael Boyd the Illusionist as both the MC of the Perth event and offering not one but two acts of mind blowing entertainment, Gospo Collective closing the show with an amazing blend of African rhythm and western harmony, and so many more phenomenal acts that you can read all about here.
And what about the Winners? Well, a list of phenomenal winners was revealed this evening from Great Big Events walking away as event management company of the year to ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020 walking away with TWO trophies, one as Best Sporting Event and one as Australian Event of the Year. The judges were overwhelmed with the standard of the entries put forward, which made their job even more difficult! (See winners list here).
This year the Awards would like to make special mention of the Community that allowed the 2020 Event Awards to proceed. The Judges, Partners, State Organizers, Entrants, Finalists, Winners and Entertainers, that made the 2020 Multi State Event Awards possible, we could not have done it without you. Also a big congratulations to all of the Finalists and Winners of the Australian Event Awards 2020.
