An initiative of Event Guide Ghana in partnership with Avance Media, the awards is based on the need to promote & highlight organizations and people who create and successfully execute incredible events which meet international standards and have the prospects of becoming models for other future projects.
At the press launch organized at the African Regent Hotel, the organizers of the event said the awards will create a platform that will ultimately help attract relevant attention, adequate resources and appropriate investment towards events in Ghana and will serve as an encouragement for event organizers to continue with their trends.
Mr. Fred Kyei Mensah, member of the board in his key note address said some of the challenges event organizers face in Ghana are numerous some of which include power issues, venue, ticket racketeering, rates of events and sponsorship.
He noted that the Ghana Event Awards will create a healthy competition between event organizers and also make them more innovative in organizing future events.
