EEAA Awards For Excellence Finalists Announced

The Exhibition & Event Association of Australasia has just revealed its impressive list of finalists for the 2009 EEAA Awards for Excellence

The Exhibition & Event Association of Australasia (EEAA) has just revealed its impressive list of finalists for the 2009 EEAA Awards for Excellence.

Record nominations were received for this year’s Awards for Excellence and judging was tough due to the high calibre of entries across the 14 awards.

“This year’s judging process was the hardest to date as the quality and number of entries continues to improve each year,” said EEAA general manager, Margaret Crichton.

“The industry is recognising the importance of the Awards for Excellence and how they help in marketing and employee motivation – to be recognised formally as a finalist, and potentially a winner, is great for both business and brand exposure. ”

Winners will be announced at the EEAA Awards for Excellence Gala Dinner which will be held at Sydney’s Ivy Room, Thursday 3 December 2009. Tickets are available and can be booked online by clicking here.
