Event Planet – Australian Event Awards finalist

  • Event Planet recognised for the fourth consecutive year
  • Finalist, Event Management Company of the Year
  • Finalist, Young Achiever of the Year

We’re kicking off the week with an exciting announcement. For the fourth year running, Event Planet has been shortlisted as a finalist at the prestigious Australian Event Awards.

The Australian Event Awards recognises excellence, rewards innovation, and unites the Australian events industry for a 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.

Events like the Moet et Chandon Tribute to Roger Federer, Tabcorp’s Melbourne Cup Birdcage Marquee, Land Rover’s English Polo Gardens and the NSW and QLD Premiers’ Export Awards, set the tone for what was been a busy year at Event Planet HQ. We couldn’t be prouder to round out 12 months of fun, hard work, and innovation with recognition at the nation’s premier events industry awards.

In good company

Event Planet joins the top echelon of Australian event management companies for the coveted Australian Event Management Company of the Year title, a title we were honoured to win in both 2012 and 2013, and for which we received a highly commended nod in 2014.

“Event Planet’s selection as a finalist for Event Management Company of the Year in Australia, for the fourth year in a row, is truly wonderful. The continued recognition of our creativity and success, on a national scale, is brilliant.”

– Amy Merriman, Managing Director

The Event Management Company of the Year category award recognises a business that has delivered and event or events in Australia at a consistently exceptional level. As past winners of this title, Event Planet has continued our ambassadorship for the events industry through continually committing to encourage our clients to pursue creativity, innovation and guest-centric strategies across events and brand activations.

A talent on the rise

One of our Event Producers, Monique O’Callaghan, has been named as a finalist for Australian Young Achiever of the Year.

Monique was selected from an incredibly diverse range of entries from all over Australia to make the list of just four finalists in this category. It’s a huge coup for Monique, and a very proud moment for Event Planet.

“We’re also thrilled that Monique O’Callaghan, who started with Event Planet as an intern straight out of college, is a finalist for Young Achiever of the Year.”

– Amy Merriman, Managing Director

The Young Achiever of the Year category award recognises the contribution of a young person to advancing the Australian event industry through a high level of achievement and demonstrated potential to lead through continued innovation.

The 2015 Australian Event Awards Industry Night of Nights will be held at the beautiful Doltone House in Pyrmont (Sydney) on Tuesday 17th November 2015. Read more about the Australian Event Awards program.
