2010 Event and Exhibiton Awards finalists announced

The finalists for the Exhibition and Event Association of Australasia's Awards for Excellence have been released, with winners announced at the EEAA Gala Dinner on 30 November in Melbourne

The finalists for the Exhibition and Event Association of Australasia’s (EEAA) Awards for Excellence have been released, and the winner in each category will be announced at the Awards for Excellence Gala Dinner on 30 November at Plenary Hall 2 of the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre (MCEC).

The Gala Dinner will be an evening to recognise outstanding merit and leadership within the industry and provide an opportunity for members to showcase their innovation, performance and success.

The evening will also wrap up EEAA’s Annual Conference, being held earlier the same day at the MCEC. Sponsored again by Octanorm as a major event partner, the venue of the Gala Dinner will be decorated by Microhire and Harry the Hirer with an art-deco peacock-inspired theme to compliment the decadent and celebratory nature of the evening.

Col Cameron, one of the quickest comedy minds in the business will emcee the evening. The Wacky group along with DJ Eddie Rinaldo will provide entertainment.
