AIME are pleased to announce that the business events industry’s top professionals will judge its annual awards on 15 and 16 February at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC). AIME’s five awards promote excellence in stand design and presentation, sustainability and environment and one award recognises individual contribution to the business events industry.
AIME’s three stand awards will be judged by Margaret Crichton, General Manager at Exhibition & Event Association of Australasia (EEAA), Linda Gaunt, CEO of Meetings Events Australia (MEA) and Noor Ahmad, Regional Director Asia-Pacific at International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA).
The awards will be judged onsite and one exhibitor will win in each of the following categories:
- Best Stand under 30m²
Best Stand over 30m²
Best New Exhibitor Stand
AIME is also recognising exhibitors that have gone that extra mile to make their stand environmentally friendly with the Best Environmental Stand Award and exhibitors have had the chance to enter this award online detailing the initiatives they have undertaken. This award will be judged by Caitlin Findley and Seamus Balkin from Ecovantage and Danielle Johnson from Climate Positive.
The fifth award is the Outstanding Contribution Award which recognises individual commitment and work within the business and events industry in the Asia-Pacific region.
“AIME provides the ideal forum for recognising outstanding, influential individuals and companies who have made a significant difference within the business events industry and all our past winners of these awards are proud to be recognised by the premier meetings and incentives event in Asia-Pacific. We look forward to announcing the winners for this year on the second morning of AIME,” comments Sally de Swart, AIME Event Director.
The AIME 2011 Awards presentation will be held on the Concourse at MCEC on Wednesday 16th February at 9:45am.
