If a business has engaged with the Wedding Industry Awards™ in their Region and participated in the Awards Presentation and became a WINNER in their Category, in their Region that business automatically becomes a FINALIST in the Australian Wedding Awards™
Every business that is nominated as a FINALIST in the Australian Wedding Awards™ receives a Generic FINALIST Logo ROUNDEL with an invitation to participate in the current year Australian Wedding Awards™ Gala Presentation Dinner and Awards Ceremony.
Yes, you need to attend by purchasing a Ticket for each Category you wish to enter. So, if a Business is a Wedding Venue and also a FINALIST in the Wedding Venue Coordinator Category you need to purchase two (2) Tickets.
If a Registered WINNER / Finalist does not engage with the Wedding Industry Awards Gala Live Event, then we reserve the right to offer an opportunity to the Registered #2 HIGHLY COMMENDED from the Wedding Industry Award Region.
Once a #2 HIGHLY COMMENDED Regional Recipient accepts their position in the Australian Wedding Awards, they will then receive a Generic Finalist Roundel.
We encourage businesses to attend but there are cases where a business may not be available, so we encourage them to send an associate / friend to attend the evening. Worst case scenario is to purchase a single Ticket for each Category to the event and organise one of your business colleagues to collect on your behalf if you are a recipient of an Australian Wedding Award™ or we can mail the Award with P&H to be included.
Unfortunately, unlike the Wedding Industry Awards™ there is not the facility to Post Register. Regional WINNERS that do not engage by accepting the Invitation to engage by the RSVP Date lose their opportunity to be a Recipient of an Australian Wedding Award™ and their place will be offered to the #2 HIGHLY COMMENDED Recipient in their Category for their Region.
Unfortunately, unlike the Wedding Industry Awards™ there is not a Virtual Event. Australian Wedding Awards is a LIVE EVENT ONLY.
We classify the Australian Wedding Awards™ as a BLACK-TIE EVENT. We encourage attendees to Dress Up – Ladies Cocktail or After 5.00pm, Men need to wear Black Tie – Dinner Suit. There is an Australian Wedding Award™ for the “Best Dressed Couple” (Face to Face Event).
The Minimum is one (1) Ticket per Category / Business.
No limit applies to Ticket Purchases for the Gala Presentation Dinner, we encourage businesses to bring their Staff / Associates who have been fundamental to your success.
Gala Presentation Dinner, there is a sliding scale for multiple Ticket Purchases. Note: there is a requirement that a Registration (Purchase a Ticket) be required for each Category that a business is nominated as a Finalist. Your attendee ticket also counts as a Category entry.
It identifies on the Humanitix Ticketing Website (Tickets are Non-Refundable) but they can be Transferred to another party.
The Business Category will be the same as for the Wedding Industry Awards™.
The is NO Voting by Newlyweds, this was captured through Wedding Industry Awards™ in your Region.
Those Businesses that register within the prescribed time frame (RSVP Date) will have a Business Audit undertaken of their business to investigate the effective presentation of the business, user friendliness and functionality of their Website + Social Media. There will also be a secret shopper (Phone Call and Email) to investigate user friendliness, and customer engagement. In other words, Good Business Practices.
There is an opportunity to have a 30min discussion of your Business’s performance with the Business Audit, only if the Business requests this after the Event.
