Ghana Event Awards 2017 Launch
The first Ghana Event Awards has been launched to recognize and reward indigenous Ghanaian events and their respective organizers for excellence in event management.
The award scheme is based on the need to promote & highlight organizations and people who create and successfully execute incredible events which meet international standards and have the prospects of becoming models for other future projects.
At a press launch held at the African Regent Hotel, organisers noted that the awards will create a platform that will ultimately help attract relevant attention, adequate resources and appropriate investment towards events in Ghana and will serve as an encouragement for event organizers to continue with their trends.
Mr. Fred Kyei Mensah, member of the board in his key note address said some of the challenges event organizers face in Ghana are numerous some of which include power issues, venue, ticket racketeering, rates of events and sponsorship.
He noted that the Ghana Event Awards will create a healthy competition between event organizers and also make them more innovative in organizing future events.
The awards comes with 15 categories, which will be judged by a board of JURY after public nominations before the public is invited to decide the ultimate winner through votes.
Organiserzs announced on the night that nominations are opened for awards consideration. Forms they said can be filled on their website, events Ghanaeventawards.com.
Submitted works must have been released between January 1, 2016 – December 31, 2016
