For the 3rd consecutive year, Event Planet has been named among the most innovative and outstanding businesses in the Australian events industry.
Event Planet has been announced as a finalist for the prestigious Event Organiser of the Year title, to be presented in November this year. After winning this award in both 2012 and 2013, (the first time it has been won twice by the same company), this is an outstanding honour to be nominated as a finalist once again.
The Australian Event Awards is the national awards program to reward innovation, recognise excellence and unite the Australian Events Industry.
Event Planet was selected from hundreds of entries from across Australia and an incredibly diverse range of industries to make the list of just four finalists in this category.
The Event Organiser of the Year category award recognises an individual or business that has delivered an event or events in Australia at a consistently exceptional level over a 12 month period. As the current Australian Event Manager of the Year, Event Planet has continued to perform as an excellent ambassador for the Australian events industry, through continually committing to encourage clients to pursue innovative events and brand activations as part of their overall marketing strategies.
Managing Director, Amy Merriman says “it is a fantastic honour for Event Planet and our passionate and dedicated team of event professionals. We really believe in the value of events and the power, influence and commercial results they generate for our clients. It would be an extraordinary outcome if we were to win for a third consecutive year and make a hattrick.”
“Australia is blessed with one of the great event industries of the world. It hasn’t come about just through good luck but through the skill and dedication of a lot of great companies and a lot of great people,” says former Olympic Chief and co-chair of the Industry Judging Panel Sandy Hollway.
The Australian Event Awards Industry Night of Nights will be held at Doltone House, Darling Island Wharf in Sydney on Tuesday 11th November, providing national recognition and celebration of outstanding achievements across the whole of Australia’s thriving events industry, from small-scale events in regional Australia, to multi-million dollar festivals and public events.
