Sunshine Coast QLD, Home of the 2016-2018 Australian Event Awards

We are inviting any State, Territory, venue, government body or partnerships thereof who wish to boost their region and promote their destination to the wider Australian events community, to enter a bid to become our ‘Destination Partner’ by hosting the culminating event of Australian Event Industry Month, the Australian Event Awards Ceremony.

Becoming a Destination Partner provides exposure to the whole Australian events industry through our Awards’ database, media relationships and professional networks Australia-wide. It positions you as the chosen State / Territory and venue to host the prestigious Australian Event Awards Ceremony and provides opportunities to showcase the destination, venue and services to your target market. It is also an opportunity to be part of a great event, celebrating the best of the industry.

2021 offers a special opportunity to host a unique Event Awards Ceremony that not only aims to highlight achievements but also strives to represent and acknowledge the strength and resilience of the industry in the face of Covid-19. Partnering with us as the Destination Partner 2021 demonstrates your commitment to continued excellence and innovation in the events industry.

Attended by a large number of event practitioners, staff, crew, and web-streamed to hundreds more, the Awards Ceremony alone injects social, cultural, and economic benefits to the area to engage your events community more broadly, but also to instigate and advance public visitation.

“We are looking for innovative bids that can both facilitate the best possible delivery of the Australian Event Awards and work closely with our management team to make this year’s program an acknowledgement of industry resilience. We are looking for passionate, creative, and collaborative Destination Partners who are just as committed to creating an amazing event as we are. Traditionally, collaborative bids have fared best, so I really encourage organisations to consider partnerships with each other and their destination.” Ian Steigrad, Managing Director of the Awards.

Bids close 5:00pm AEST on Tuesday 27 July 2021.
