The winners of IDEA 2021 will be announced in person at Royal Randwick in Sydney on Thursday 24 February 2022.
Naturally, there is a lot of uncertainty around the Omicron variant and the impact it may have on our gala party. We want to reassure you that we are going ahead and taking every step to ensure your safety.
All attendees must be double vaccinated and we plan to be outdoors for the entirety of the event. If we have inclement weather, we will have a backup plan that will provide you with the safest possible combination of indoor and outdoor space.
Sydney’s newest world-class venue, the Winx Stand has panoramic views over the picturesque Royal Randwick racecourse and expansive landscaped gardens. It’s the ideal venue for an evening of sumptuous food and wine, amazing music, great company and the very best of Australian architecture and interior design.
But if – for any reason – you can’t attend, we want to reassure you that your tickets are fully refundable up until 48 hours prior to the event
This year, we’re even more grateful and excited to be bringing everyone in the industry together for a COVID-safe summer cocktail party. We look forward to seeing you and celebrating Australian design!
