Canadian Event Awards

a night of celebration, story telling & hope


free to attend

The biggest night in the Canadian event industry is happening July 7, 2021, when the Canadian Event Awards go live from the bb Blanc Studios in Toronto, Western Canada’s newest boutique event space; the Experience Factory in Calgary and virtually from one of Canada’s most iconic event spaces, Casa Loma. 

This year’s gala is more than a celebration, it’s a chance to reconnect, to gather, to recognize those that succeeded, those that innovated and those that put words into action by giving back and contributing to the overall health of our industry. 

So get dressed up and camera ready, and join us for a night filled with powerful stories, world-class entertainment and the chance to network with a few hundred of your favourite industry colleagues.

This event would not be possible with the incredible generosity
and support of our valued partners. It is because of them and their passion 
and commitment to the Canadian event industry that we are able to come 
together to celebrate our work and provide a platform to recognize
the people and companies that make up our collective community.
