The Australian Event Awards and Symposium is the national awards program and conference for the Australian events industry, fostering continued excellence, innovation and unity.

The Awards program is the only opportunity for Australian event professionals to compete directly right across the nation and across all facets of the industry to establish which are Australia’s best events and event-related goods, services and innovations. Alongside the Awards, the Symposium aims to drive industry growth and development, and to ensure Australia remains on the leading edge of the events space worldwide.

The high-profile Awards program and conference is guided by ongoing industry consultation and continues to answer the need for cohesiveness across the entire Australian industry, developing and reinforcing industry identity and assisting Australian operators in cross-development of opportunities between events and event disciplines.

This year we submitted an entry for the award of Best Technical Achievement or Innovation for our work on the Australian Open Series with Tennis Australia 2017/2018; watch our video that was part of our submission:

Some comments from the Judges:

"Looked great would have added to the experience of the public."

"Well done, a world class effort for an event viewed on the global stage. You excelled by incorporating an interactive and engaging product connecting the sponsors to the audience. I have no doubt the sponsors achieved their ROI."

"Well done on an awesome production, an amazing technological and innovative achievement that is highly complex, logistically challenging. This well put together entry can't be faulted. It has demonstrated Aussie ingenuity and innovation that has set technological benchmarks globally and that are being adopted in other tournaments overseas such as Wimbledon. Not content to rest on their laurels, Mediatec must be congratulated for constantly innovating - allowing for better fan experiences, sponsor opportunities as well as bringing the Open to a broader audience through multiple engagement avenues including social media. Especially impressive is the risk management approach and multiple layers of redundancy and 'self healing' signals."
