Statement from the GTTIA committee
Over the past 18 months we have seen significant challenges due to the covid-19 health crisis, with
circumstances continuing to remain uncertain and with the health and safety of our attendees in
mind, the GTTIA committee have made the decision to postpone the awards evening.
Initially planned for October 29th the event will be rescheduled to early 2022 to allow the current
situation to stabilise.
The committee recognises that our valued sponsors, attendees, and nominees from Victoria are
significantly impacted by current government-imposed restrictions. To continue forward and hold
the event in their absence would undermine the event’s primary purpose to unite industry players
and celebrate the outstanding achievements of award nominees and winners.
The committee are looking forward to announcing a revised event date and continuing with plans to
once again to hold an extremely successful evening celebrating award winners and showcasing the
industry’s innovative, sustainable, and environmentally friendly practices within the region.
We will now use this time to launch a new and exciting initiative for the GTTIA Awards celebrating
finalists across the 9 all new award categories. Over the coming months, each award and finalist
group will be featured across various platforms highlighting their contribution and impact across
their employer, co-worker an industry networks.
With the support of the GTTIA committee, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our
sponsors, judges and suppliers who’s continued support has been instrumental to the ongoing
success and reputation of the awards.
