Even event organisers have their own awards ceremony to celebrate the best of the industry, from the best marquee hire prices on the Gold Coast, to the best technological developers in the US. For the event industry, one of those awards are the Event Technology Awards ceremony, which has recently started accepting entries for their 2019 iteration.
The 2019 iteration of the event feature a revised list of 30 categories, which sees the return of popular categories like Outstanding Contribution to Event Technology. 2018 saw 250 entries, and the event’s organisers are expecting even more interest and applications for this year, from people with apps for marquee hire prices on the Gold Coast, to people who develop new ways to interact with attendees.
The online portal for the event’s 2019 iteration, www.eventtechnologyawards.co.uk started accepting entries on the 1st of April, Monday, at exactly 12pm; midday. Organisers for the event are partnering up with Evessio, their software provider, in order to make sure that the entry process for 2019 is as smooth as it can possibly be.
Co-Founder Adam Parry spoke on the 2019 awards, looking back at the first Event Technology Awards in 2013. He notes that the inaugural event happened back when the industry was just a small conglomerate. Now, they’re launching the 7th run of the event, to a sector that’s grown massively in the intervening years, becoming an important and respected part of the event industry. He says that their growth reflects the industry’s own growth, and they’re proud of being part of the event tech group.
D2i Systems’ Engage will be the sponsor for 2019’s Event Technology Awards. Sales and Marketing Director Matthew Wilson says that the event technology market is responsible for driving development in the event sector, and the event is the celebration of that. D2i aims to foster development in the industry, as much as they do to their own products. The Event Technology Awards, Wilson says, is an opportunity for them to welcome and support new players in the industry, which will encourage good awareness and development in the industry, on top of just being a solid business investment.
