For over two decades, the Canadian Event Awards have been the mark of excellence for Canadian event professionals. The national program recognizes outstanding achievements in events, meetings, catering, entertainment, design, production and event technology. Since its inception, over 1100 awards have been presented. The competition has become a globally recognized brand and a powerful launching pad for companies looking to establish themselves in a competitive marketplace.
The work submitted by Canadians into the CEA competition represents the most creative, technically challenging and highly respected events in the country. From west coast foraged wedding feasts to downtown Toronto Pride paraded, national charity galas in Montreal to small-town festivals in PEI, the Canadian Event Awards offers a diverse and inclusive program based on merit, innovation and talent.
In 2020 the event and meeting industry, along with the rest of the world, was devastated by the COVID19 crisis resulting in the cancellation of hundreds of thousands of events. In response to the changing ecosystem of the event industry, this year’s award categories have been modified temporarily and will remain in place until the 2023 awards season.
