AEO People’s Awards

AEO People's Award

Welcome to the inaugural AEO People's Awards! A spinoff of the AEO Excellence Awards, this event is dedicated to recognising the incredible talent we have on the ground, from junior to middle-management event professionals in marketing, ops, sales and beyond.

We'll be sharing their stories, showcasing their achievements and giving the nominees the chance to inspire and be inspired by their peers.

The 14 categories cover a breadth of industry roles and with our streamlined approach to entering, taking a little time to nominate team members is a fantastic way to shine a spotlight on their hard work and make them feel valued.
