Event Industry Awards Celebrates World Class Output in most Challenging Times

New skills emerge from challenges as event teams anticipate return of live hybrid events

Over the last year, the events industry in Ireland has shown amazing strength and resilience in the face of unparalleled challenges.

Challenges that included pivoting to virtual events, keeping clients engaged and teams and suppliers on the same page as the industry continued to provide businesses and organisations with a world-class service. 

As we move toward a reopening of the economy and the much hoped-for return to live events, we will see the emergence of hybrid formats where the live digital experience lives alongside the live equivalent.  

And we are delighted to return with the Event Industry Awards at this pivotal time to celebrate all the different kinds of live and digital events that have been held over the last 18 months.

You will see in the category options for you to enter a comprehensive recognition of the totality of event offerings in both virtual and live contexts. 

A New Phase

The awards signal an exciting new phase for the industry and scheduled for Friday, October 15th, this year. They will provide entrants with a timely platform from which to let the market know about the new skills that have been acquired and honed but also reassure clients that the sector is ready for the return of live formats where people return to the ‘face to face’ experience they so clearly have missed.

We’re delighted to be back and look forward to receiving your submissions detailing the journey you have been on and the achievements you have enjoyed in what has been a tumultuous period for us all.

New Award Categories

Both Live and Virtual Events to be recognised. 

The 2021 categories will continue to recognise the best that the events industry has to offer and showcase the achievements from within the industry from organisers, venues, and services alike.

As in 2019, there will be no cost to enter the 2021 awards.

The category criteria and online entry system will be launching soon but, in the meantime, we encourage you to browse our 2021 award categories and register your interest for further details here.
