AAXO 2019 ROAR Awards Celebrates Exhibition Excellence

AAXO 2019 ROAR Awards Celebrates Exhibition Excellence

2020-02-12 

 

The prestigious ROAR Awards in conjunction with EXSA’s EXSA-LLENCE Awards were held on Friday 31 January at the Gallagher Convention Centre under the umbrella of the Exhibition Industry Awards. The AAXO ROAR awards are aimed at recognising and acknowledging merit in exhibition organisation, exhibitor participation and service excellence. This annual exhibition industry gathering has become renowned for the opportunities it offers for association members to network, celebrate their successes and revel in the recognition of their awards, and raise the bar for the year ahead.

The stellar cast of sponsors for the evening were integral to the evening’s success. The 007 theme was brought to life by the magnificent décor sponsored by Unlimited Events and the impressive audio visual and staging sponsored by Brandex and EPH. Hosting it all was the Gallagher Convention Centre with the impeccable service of their exceptional teams and the delicious menu prepared by their catering team. In keeping with the theme, the team at Barmotion ensured that guests were welcomed with cocktails on arrival and cappuccinos to wind down. Scan Displays sponsored menu and programme table cards kept everyone on track and comedian, Donavan Goliath, the MC for the evening, sponsored by ExpoGuys, certainly kept up the momentum of the evening with his sharp wit and on point comedy.

Everyone dressed the part in their best 007 attire and arrived on a mission with the ‘licence to win’. With over 370 guests in attendance, having registered on the EXBO reservation system, and welcomed by registration staff sponsored by Provantage Proactive staffing, the Exhibition Industry Awards was a perfect gathering of the industry to celebrate the best of the best in 2019. The entire evening was expertly captured on video and photo by the artful skills of the team sponsored by Orange Orbit, with winners’ priceless moments captured against the logo wall and registration desks sponsored by GL Events. And we were all kept safe and sound by the team sponsored by Lodge Security.
