Venue Industry Awards
Our industry is unique and draws to it some incredible individuals who are passionate about what they do. From memorable moments for their patrons to iconic events that form part of our nation’s culture and history, these are a rare breed and we love to celebrate them.
The Venue Industry Awards have a rich history of recognising leaders, game changers and innovators in our business and are awarded based on the achievements of the nominees over the last 12 months only – being the 2019 calendar year.
The Awards recognise those engaged in the venue management industry who are achieving great results in their career and making a wider contribution to the industry as a whole.
