Canadian Event Industry Awards (CEIA)

About CEIA

The Canadian Event Industry Awards are the hallmark of achievement in the Canadian event and meeting industry.  The program was established in 1997 as a platform for event and meeting professionals from each major discipline of the industry to be recognized and celebrated for their talent, hard work and success.

Since its inception, over 679 Canadian professionals have been recognized for their achievements in events and the competition has become a globally recognized symbol of excellence, as well as a powerful launching pad for companies looking to establish themselves in a competitive marketplace.


The program has a robust and detailed judging platform and each entry is required to complete a five-step application process, making it one of the most challenging and meaningful competitions in the industry.
