Connect – Inspire – Celebrate
National Industry Awards for the Kid’s Activity & Party Industry
Saturday, June 1st 2019, Sheraton Grand Mirage, Gold Coast
Each year the national What’s On 4 Kids Awards shine a spotlight on and celebrate the very best in Australia’s kid’s activity, party, and family entertainment industry.
The What’s On 4 Kid’s Awards offers a range of opportunities that go further than the winning moments on the night.
The Awards offers nominees the opportunity to be recognised as one of Australia’s best and most loved business owners and gain the credibility to explore new opportunities, partnerships, growth, and expansion. Winners and finalists can create unique marketing exposure and promotional opportunities leading to the attendance of new families and retaining of existing ones.
Attendance at the conference gives access to powerful insights and knowledge specific to their industry and be part of an exclusive network to build relationships with other industry business owners.
These businesses are an essential part of Australia’s small and medium-sized business community but more importantly the greater community at large. They provide activities, classes, clubs, school holiday programs, shows, and entertainment for our young people, for the next generation. The skills and life lessons they obtain from these business owners develop their physical, social, mental, emotional and spiritual growth and encourages them to set goals and go through life with a growth mindset.
As a small business ourselves, we are proud to offer this annual awards and conference event. We welcome contact from interested sponsors and partners.
From all of us here at What’s On 4, good luck!Elise Easdown
