Event Inception wins 'Best Supplier Team - Event' at EEAA 2018 Awards for Excellence

Event Inception wins ‘Best Supplier Team – Event’

at the EEAA 2018 Awards for Excellence

Event Inception was built on the foundation to inspire intention in innovation and continually push the market to strive for more fruitful event experiences. The 2018 Event Inception brief was to deliver the most intuitive expression of creativity across all facets of events: including AV, Design & Décor, Catering, Entertainment and Hospitality Services.

As creators of the overall event design concept, DE&E along with the EI Collective made up of AV24/7, Merivale, QC Entertainment and Clifford Wallace Group were tasked to deliver an event for guests to be the ‘first’. ‘First’ to see, feel, experience, touch and taste. ‘First’ to see new collections, product lines, innovation in audio visual and production, food service and hospitality. ‘First’ to become market leaders within their own organisations and ‘first’ in their industries to champion change and innovation.

Through collaboration, passion and determination, the EI Collective; all true believers in the power of connection, planned and executed what the industry has come to know as the ‘Event of the Year’.

The EEAA annual Awards for Excellence honour the industry’s highest achieving shows, venues, suppliers, teams and individuals we are so proud of our achievement.


Event Inception draws together corporate event managers, professional conference organisers, event producers, exhibition planners and industry leaders Australia-wide. With an estimated ticket price of more than $3,000 per person, Event Inception has become the biggest experiential event in our industry and cements the EI Collective as innovators and leaders in event styling, AV and Production, catering, entertainment and hospitality. There is no other event like Event Inception in the Southern Hemisphere.

Guests are exposed to styled spaces that they never would have imagined or conceived on their own. Matched with AV and Catering to provide a 360 immersive experience that touches on all senses and that challenges all perceptions and revolutionises themes that are old and new.

Each collection showcased was designed to translate different event styling formats in any venue and many configurations and formations.

Each time a collection is installed in a new event environment it continues to arouse a new audience whilst still staying true to continuing to inspire intention in innovation.

EI collections are the driving force and testament to the success of Event Inception. Guests are exposed to styled spaces that they never would have imagined or conceived on their own. Recreating each of the collections and translating them to different event styling formats in any venue and many configurations and formations is the desired outcome for any busy planner.

The latest and most innovative in AV technology is not always front of mind for event organisers, simply because they have not been exposed to the option of certain capabilities. The opportunity to showcase new innovation, new products and technology to a captive audience while immersed in the experience, provides inspiration and allows customers to think without limitations when planning and creating their next event.
