After extensive consultation with the Industry, the Event Awards 2021 Ceremony joined the long list of 2021 events to move online due to effects of Covid-19.
In a perhaps unusual move, the ceremony was delivered as a series of bite sized broadcasts published each evening over 12 days from October 20 – 31 capping off a month-long Industry celebration during which the work of every entrant was highlighted.
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.
“The decision to move the Event Awards Ceremony online was not an easy one. However, based on feedback from the industry and ongoing travel restrictions and uncertainty, we have decided to celebrate the achievements and resilience of the Industry in a timely way, even if regrettably, that has to be done online.” Ian Steigrad, Managing Director of the Australian Event Awards.
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.
