EEAA chief executive Joyce DiMascio said the diversity in submissions for the Awards reflects the broad range of events, venues and services in the industry.

“Entries were assessed by 32 independent judges from across Australia and covered over 20 industry categories from pop culture, energy and resources, IT and health,” she said.

“Thank you to the judges for supporting the EEAA in its mission to recognise excellence, and to our Association Members for submitting their work to be reviewed by industry peers. We hope the winners will display their trophies and the winner seal with pride.”

Chair of judges John Trevillian oversaw the judging for a second year in a row.

“The increase in awards this year is a testament to the regard with which these awards are held,” he said.

“The quality of submissions continues to improve. This year there was an almost 20% increase in award entries and this meant the competition in some categories was very tough.

“For this reason seven categories have a highly commended as well as a winner. It is unusual for the judging to be so close.”

Among those honoured were the two winners of the Richard Geddes Young Achiever Award – Anne-Marie Mina of Exhibitions and Trade Fairs and James Kennedy of Exhibit Systems.

The Best Show for 2016 was awarded to Hair Expo Australia 2016, organised by Reed Exhibitions Australia.
