EEAA narrows 2020 awards to two categories following catastrophic year

The Exhibition and Event Association of Australasia (EEAA) is calling for nominations for its Awards for Excellence.

Due to the impact of COVID-19 on the exhibitions and business events industry there will only be two award categories this year – Richard Geddes Young Achiever Award and Scholarship and the Unsung Hero Award.

“The category eligibility and criteria have been designed to showcase the exceptional work of our young members via the Richard Geddes Young Achiever Award and the Unsung Heroes of our industry,” EEAA Chief Executive, Claudia Sagripanti said.

“The Awards will recognise those EEAA Member individuals who have delivered innovation, shown resilience, remained optimistic and garnered business confidence amongst the industry.

“We all know someone who is a driving force for change, and pivotal in achieving success for their company or for the industry– they can be one of the younger members of the industry and a person who may fly under the radar. We are calling on the industry tell us about the individuals who have made a significant contribution and to allow those people to be recognised.”
