Online Australian Event Awards Announcements 2021
“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.
Despite the effects of Covid-19 in 2021, we persevered with a month-long online Event awards celebration of the achievements and resilience of the industry. The month of October was broken into two parts; entrant highlights took place from 1-19 October, followed directly by the announcement of the finalists and winners of the 2021 Australian Event Awards between 20–31 October.
The entrant highlight period served to showcase every Awards entrant and their accomplishments since 1 July 2020 on our social media channels. These highlights included an image or video of the accomplishment, a short overview and recognition of a few of the individuals that were integral to the operation. A full list of the 2021 Entrants can be found here.
The entrant highlight period was directly followed by 12-days of National Finalist and Winner announcements published on our YouTube channel each evening between 20 – 31 October. The video broadcasts, which are still available on our YouTube channel, allowed us to spend 12 days celebrating the accomplishments of the 2021 Finalists and Winners.
Whilst we were excited to be able to highlight the Industry at all in 2021, it is our aim to return to a live ceremony format in 2022, bringing the industry together in person as we have done so many times before.
