After extensive consultation with the Industry, the Event Awards 2021 Ceremony will join the long list of events to move online due to effects of Covid-19.
In a perhaps unusual move, the ceremony will be delivered as a series of bite sized broadcasts delivered each evening over 12 days from October 20 – 31 capping off a month-long Industry celebration during which the work of every entrant will be highlighted.
“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.
