About the summit

It gives us great pleasure to announce the first ever Employee Engagement Awards Conference in Australia & New Zealand in association with Reward Gateway.

This is the only event in the world that brings together award winning & shortlisted entries all in one room. You will be able to learn from best-in-class engagement programmes across a wide range of companies and sectors and understand what pitfalls to avoid along the way.

Tickets & value from the day

We will bring together 10+ speakers to create a powerful and educational afternoon to maximise the value you receive for the time out of the office. As mentioned, no other event can offer the mix of award winning campaigns that we can.

We are also keeping each speaker to a short and sharp 20 minutes to present powerful case studies and presentations so that you extract the maximum value from the day.

Immediately following the conference we will be having a short Award presentation followed by networking cocktails & canapés for conference guests and winners alike. Overlooking one of the greatest vistas in the world.
