The 2015 (2nd annual) Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards are the top business awards competition for the 22 nations of the Asia-Pacific region. They are currently accepting entries through January 28, and late entries will be accepted through March 11.
The Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards debuted in 2014 with a very impressive collection of Stevie winners including Billabong International Limited, Delta Airlines, Hanaro Adcom, Hyundai Steel, PT. Telekomunikasi Indonesia, Sony, and many more. While less than 50 entry categories were offered in last year’s program, over 200 entry categories are offered for 2015.
One category group in particular that we are highlighting today is the Live Event Awards. Many public relations, marketing, and event planning professionals may not even realize that the promotional events they put on throughout the year can, and should be recognized. Everyone who has ever planned a business event knows the time, dedication, and creativity that goes into making it a success. The Stevie Awards rewards the teams and organizations who prepare live events by offering 11 Live Event Awards categories.
