This year, the INCITE Awards will deliver its finale event with at an in-person Gala Cocktail event at The Westin Hotel on Friday 23 July, from 6.30pm onwards.
Based on feedback from our past guests and also finalists, we have designed the event differently this year, moving away from the traditional sit down awards dinner to a Gala Cocktail event that encourages maximum networking within the room and allow everyone attending to enjoy different experiences that suit them best.
Let’s have a look at what’s in store for our event!
Meet our MCs
Following on from our Digital Conference, Charlie Gunningham and Lisa Smith will come back on stage to MC the Gala Cocktail event.
Our Event Style
A stand up cocktail event is the go this year! We will start the formal proceedings of introducing our finalists, then announcing Merits and Award winners for each of the 6 product/services categories, then the Honorary Awards (Mal Bryce, Pearcey and Achiever) and People’s Choice Award.
We will break these proceedings into two sections with a 30minutes gap in between to top up drinks and choose from a delicious array of free-flowing canapes!
There will be lounge seating throughout the ballroom in case you would like to sit down anytime.
Party with style
In addition, we have designed our Gala Cocktail event with plenty of engaging activities throughout the room to allow for you and all guests to decide what they would like to do on the night. Some of the options:
- Take some great pics in the AR and Mirror photobooths
- Get hands on with WA technology with immersive experiences booths
- Give INCITE and our WA tech innovators a shoutout via Voxpops
- Get dancing with DJ Vixon
- Get in the groove with a surprise band!
- And much more….
A special 30th year acknowledgement
As you might know, the INCITE Awards is volunteer run. We would not have been able to reach 30 years of celebrating WA technology without the support of amazing and supportive people, who we will thank on the night with a special commemoration.
Don’t forget prizes!
