The voting is open for the 2019 Australian Liquor Industry Awards, and this is your chance to nominate your favourite brands, people and venues from the last 12 months.
And now when you vote in ALIA 2019, you will be entered into a draw to win two free tickets to the industry’s night of nights.
We understand that having to go through all the off-premise awards first can be off-putting, so you can now vote in the On-Premise Awards only.
If you do want to vote in the Off-Premise Awards as well, simply head to the ALIA voting website, here, to cast your vote.
Across the bar industry there are categories including New Bar of the Year, Bar Team of the Year, Bartender of the Year and Bar Manager of the Year and more. If you want your favourite venue, cocktail list or person to be a nominated finalist, you need to vote now!
It’s down to you to make sure that those people and places who have stood out over the last 12 months are recognised.
The finalists in all categories are determined by the highest number of votes, once voting closes on Friday 30 August 2019. All finalists in all categories are then judged by an off-premise selection panel and an on-premise selection panel made up of senior industry representatives which is printed in each year’s event program.
All members of the Australian liquor industry are encouraged to vote for one or more awards in the off-premise and on-premise awards categories.
The industry panel votes in a 3-2-1 process for their top three selections in every category, with this data then audited by PKF to confirm the winners in each category. Full details on the voting process are available through the ALIA website.
This is the important first stage of the ALIA voting process and an opportunity to make sure your favourite brand, product, venue or person makes it to the list of finalists that the selection panel will vote on.
ALIA is the Australian liquor industry’s night of nights and after four successful years at Randwick Racecourse, ALIA is on the move and this year will take place at The Star. There will also be a new MC this year, we will reveal her details soon. This year ALIA will be held on Wednesday 23 October, so once you have voted don’t forget to book your ticket – and also book your costume for the 70s Disco theme.
But firstly it is all about your votes, so make sure you head to the ALIA website and have your say.
