Best Purpose-Built Event Venue

We know that live events ground to a halt over the last year, but we also know that a lot of live events were executed in world class purpose-built event venues pre-pandemic. If your venue took a spectacular event space and married it with a great team to deliver outstanding results between June 2019 - March 2020, then this is the award for you.
