Winners of the Australian Event Awards were announced at a ceremony at Optus Stadium in Perth with entries judged on all aspects of event management including best practice, innovation, marketing, stakeholder engagement and management, sustainability and event legacy.
Australian Grand Prix Corporation CEO, Andrew Westacott, expressed his delight in taking top honours at the national events award night.
“As an organisation we are thrilled to have been recognised by leaders of the Australian Events industry amongst a competitive field in the Best Sporting Event category,” said Westacott.
