Our Valued Partners

We Are the Sum of Our Parts

What began as an idea to recognize excellence in events has become a community that gathers each year to connect, see old friends, meet new ones and celebrate the best of our industry.

Nowhere is the sense of community more evident then in the collaboration of premier companies, A/V professionals, planners, producers, and event designers that come together to produce the Canadian Event Awards. Winning a Canadian Event Award will always be the highest mark of acheivement in Canadian events but we think, the real success of the awards is the people;  from all areas of the industry, that join in a collaboration of epic scale to create the greatest night of the year for Canadian event profs. 

When you align your brand with the Canadian Event Awards, you become a part of this amazing community.

Pheedloop

The privilege to serve thousands of events over the years has come with some realizations.

This is why we launched PheedLoop Cares.
