Workspace Awards 2020 to be celebrated virtually — see you there?

Following suit of many awards programs this year, Workspace has officially announced that the 2020 Workspace Awards will be celebrated via a virtual event — and we’re all invited!

2020 may have been one of the most — if not, the most — challenging years in living memory for individuals, communities and workplaces alike, but it has not been void of cause to celebrate. Industries and awards programs have stretched and pivoted gracefully out of their comfort zones and into new media to continue championing their respective causes. Later this month, the 2020 Workspace Awards is set to do the same, highlighting the incredible talent within the A&D industry via a virtual awards ceremony that can be attended wherever in Australia you are, regardless of varied social distancing restrictions.

But let it be known that, though to be held virtually, the 2020 Workspace Awards, is not an online meeting, nor a mere video link; it is a LIVE interactive event designed to celebrate the brightest and most creative talent in our industry and from all over the country. 

The event has been designed to make sure that you can enjoy some fine wines, fine food, networking, catch up with suppliers and industry colleague and have a little bit of fun along the way. There will be wine tasting, prizes to win, networking, trade expo booths to drop in on, giveaways throughout and the celebration of every award category — all completely live. The night’s program is as below:

Date: 26 November 2020

  • 5pm – 6pm: Expo Booths, Wine Tasting and Networking
  • 6pm-7:30pm: Awards presentation


Add to that news, Workspace is thrilled to announce Andrew Wallace, Linda Cheng and Caroline Beresford have joined the jury for the 2020 Workspace Awards.
