2020 Award Recipients

Congratulations to the 2020 Canadian Event Awards Recipients

Due to the Pandemic, the 2020 Canadian Event Awards Gala was held as a virtual event. Over 1000 event professionals from across Canada tuned in to watch Canada’s national event awards show, while many others were able to attend satellite viewing parties across the country. The gala was produced on the TK Events platform powered by Bb Blanc, with support from SlidePusher, Idea Hunter Bacardi Canada and Live Media. Thank you to everyone who came together during this challenging time to make the event a success.
