The Australian Event Awards move online for month long celebration

The Australian Event Awards 2021 Ceremony will join the long list of events this year to move online due to effects of Covid-19.

The ceremony will now be delivered as a series of bite sized broadcasts 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,” said Ian Steigrad, managing director of the Australian Event Awards.

“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.”

The entire month of October will now be an online celebration of the achievements and resilience of the industry, with Event Awards entrant highlights taking place from 1-19 October on social media chennels, followed directly by the announcement of the finalists and winners of the 2021 Australian Event Awards between 20–31 October uploaded onto YouTube.
