Welcome to the 2021 SBIA Awards,


On behalf of the SBIA Board of Management, I’m stoked to launch this years much awaited awards program!


It’s been a long 18 months since we’ve gathered the tribe and after the last year or so, we can’t wait to get into it! We’ve got a new Awards night venue, new digital platform and tweaked some categories to make the process as seamless as possible for our nominees.


This year we’re taking the Awards night and Roundtable to URBNSURF and the acclaimed Three Blue Ducks venue, we’ve also pushed the Awards night from October to 11th November. Our “Service to Industry” Award recipient has already been settled (sorry, it’s a secret until the night!), we’ve got a new tag team format in the wave pool and we’re working on our speaker lineup for the Roundtable!


We’ve simplified the process with the introduction of “Award Force”, an online based platform that will manage entries, submissions and judging. The retailer of the year categories have also been simplified with written submissions replaced by a zoom call with our judges for the finalists.


With that we’d like to wish everyone all the best with their entries this year and look forward to a huge night in November!
