It was hugely successful evening for sister company of Staging Connections, Exhibitions & Trade Fairs (ETF), as they take home a swag of awards at last nights' Exhibition and Event Association of Australasia (EEAA) Awards for Excellence.
As a major producer of conferences and exhibitions, ETF continues on a path of growth being presented last night with three awards at the International Convention Centre Sydney.
The National 4×4 Outdoors Show, Fishing & Boating Expo was awarded Best Consumer Show Over 10,000m2, while the ETF team behind the 2016 Irrigation Australia International Conference and Exhibition were awarded Best Show Team. Last but not least, ETF's resident rising star, Anne-Marie Mina, was awarded as Richard Geddes Young Achiever Award winner.

Speaking just after receiving the highly regarded awards, Gary Daly, Managing Director, said:
“We knew that we have delivered some world-class shows in the past year, with ETF being shortlisted in four categories, but to win Best Show Team and Best Consumer Show and have Anne-Marie be recognised and awarded as a Young Star amongst our industry peers is fantastic. It has been a strong year for ETF and the show teams have worked hard to ensure we deliver great events.”
“We’re delighted to mark the achievements of all of our shortlisted shows. Winning Best Show Team was particularly pleasing because they have worked tirelessly to ensure the show’s success.”
“Recognition by the EEAA through being shortlisted for so many awards is testament to the hard work of all of our teams.”

The awards come during a period of growth for ETF. The company has introduced four new shows to the ETF portfolio in the past 18 months, taking place around Australia. ETF will deliver the Austmine Conference and Exhibition next year in Perth, The Travel Industry Show, Melbourne, AgriTech Australia and Renewable Cities Forum which both compliment and co-locate with existing ETF shows.
