An impartial group of judges consisting of industry experts from around the region will be recruited to judge the awards.
Applicants will be assessed independently against the set criteria. The criteria varies from each category, however the most common criteria will assess overall business and/or event performance, the level of client satisfaction, the degree of innovation and the best business practices in use as well as the applicants overall contribution to the growth and development of the industry.
The criteria have been set to create an even playing field for both small and large business enterprises, therefore size does not matter. Judges will also be looking for how applicants measure and track their performance and their ability to provide evidence to support event and/or business outcomes. Greater weight will be given to applicants that provide third party or independent evidence and testimonials.
Applicants that score above a certain level will automatically become finalists on the awards night with the highest scoring applicant becoming the ultimate award winner.
Finalists will also be recognised at the awards night.
The awards apply to events and/or business activities that took place within 1 January 2015 to 31 December 2016.
