What is the Early Starters Discount?

The Early Starters discount rewards those who commit to an entry - or entries - early.

If you start and pay for an entry by June 11, you'll save $67 per entry and you'll still have the entire entry period until August 5 to complete and finesse your submission(s).
For those entering multiple categories, the savings add up.

You can enter the same event into multiple categories, providing you meet the eligibility requirements for each category. You can also enter multiple projects across various categories to maximise recognition of your work.

A win at the Australian Event Awards carries serious weight - each entry is comprehensively assessed by multiple judges from an independent panel of industry experts.

Categories in the Spotlight: Best Congress or Conference

Did you organise an exceptional convention this financial year?

The Event Awards has two categories to recognise Australia's best small or large conference - those with less than 500 delegates and those with 500 or more delegates.

If you put together an innovative and engaging corporate conference that delivered big outcomes or a logistically complex years-in-the-making international association meeting highlighting ground-breaking research, these are the categories for you.

Get involved with the Event Awards

Apart from entering, there are other ways to be an essential part of the Event Awards.

We are constantly looking for experienced event industry leaders to join the judging panel to help determine Australia's best events and industry achievements.

We're also always open to new partnerships. These can take a variety of forms: businesses that can help us deliver the Awards Ceremony itself through the provision of in-kind services, businesses who want to be associated with a particular category through naming rights and media partners who can help us promote the Event Awards and Symposium.

Partners benefit from a variety of benefits - we can tailor a package based on your objectives.

Finally, as we build the Australian Event Symposium program, we're in the market for experts across the industry to speak at the conference. If you have some key lessons to share on a current industry hot topic, get in touch.
