Events Vendors Association of Ghana (EVAG) has held the 2nd edition of the Ghana Event Industry Conference (G.E.I.C) Gala and Awards Night.
The G.E.I.C Gala and Awards is the events industry’s most prestigious awards programme to recognize excellent event stakeholders in country.
The awards programme is organized annually with the aim of empowering and rewarding events stakeholders who have given off their best work within the year.
Speaking at the ceremony in Accra, President of EVAG, Kate Hassan said, the platform is to inspire industry players to grow the industry as well as increase the performance ability of the stakeholders.
She acknowledged steps taken by members of her team in ensuring that this year’s event was successful.
“EVAG has grown and evolved tremendously in two years, courtesy of the executive board and members of the association. As a result we decided to organize the awards and gala night, in honour of our professionals who have significantly excelled and proven their skills even amidst a global pandemic”.
She further urged government to expedite the payment of the government’s stimulus package to its members since a number of them are yet to overcome the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We fall under the hospitality industry and government has put certain measures in place to help us or to support us and that is what we are still looking forward to getting that support in the campaign,” she added.
On his part, Kwesi Pratt Yamoah, also known as Myster Pratt, who was adjudged the best Master of Ceremonies (MC) at the ceremony appealed to government to keep investing in the creative arts sector to unearth many more talents for the country.
He expressed his profound gratitude to all individuals who have appreciated his stage craftsmanship.
