Colin West, Framelock Structures, has been announced as a finalist in the prestigious 2013 Australian Event Awards

Colin West, of Framelock Structures, has been named among the most innovative and outstanding in the Australian events industry as a finalist for the prestigious annual Australian Event Awards to be presented in November this year.

Competing in the award category Best Product or Service, Colins’ Framelock Crowd Control Barrier System was selected from hundreds of entries from across Australia and an incredibly diverse range of industries to make the list of just four finalists in this category.

The Australian Event Awards Industry Night of Nights will be held at Doltone House, Hyde Park in Sydney’s CBD on Tuesday 19th November, providing national recognition and celebration of outstanding achievements across the whole of Australia’s thriving events industry, from small-scale events in regional Australia, to multi-million dollar festivals and public events.

The Framelock™ Crowd Control Barrier System is an innovative, lightweight modular system of high-tensile aluminium crowd control barriers and temporary fencing designed and manufactured to meet and exceed Australian and international standards.

The 1.2 metre crowd control barriers are made with high-tensile, custom punched mesh which is integrated with aluminium bars and the floor platform is fitted with front and side anti-trips.
Colin West created the Framelock™ Crowd Control Barrier System to satisfy a need for safe, industry standard crowd control barriers and fence systems that are attractive and suitable to use at a wide range of indoor and outdoor events and venues.

"I am thrilled to be recognised as a national finalist and showcase the local talent in the Northern Territory," Colin West said. “The local event industry needs to be recognised for its new ideas and innovation."

The calibre and range of entries have continued to grow since the Awards started in 2009, and co-chairs of the judges Johnny Allen and Sandy Hollway said that the 88 finalist entries across all categories represented some of the most worthy achievements in an industry brimming with creativity, innovation and professional talent.

"This Awards program now covers accolades for state of the art venues and services through to education and training programs. It celebrates our most talented event entertainers, achievements in design and production, in conferencing and exhibitions through to the most exacting execution of international sporting events. It’s a true reflection of Australian excellence in the events arena," said Johnny Allen, Foundation Director of the Australian Centre for Event Management.

"The 2013 finalists should all be proud of the invaluable contribution they are making to Australia’s highly successful events industry."
