Unfortunately due to the ongoing lockdown in Victoria, R&CA has had to make the difficult decision to not hold the 2021 VIC & TAS Awards for Excellence. 

This year has been challenging for the hospitality sector and as your industry body R&CA wishes only the best outcome for our members and the industry as a whole.

All 2021 nominations will be rolled over into the 2022 awards that will be held early next year, as this will allow venues to be judged in a different climate as to what we are currently facing.

R&CA is excited to see you all as part of the program next year and to deliver an amazing gala dinner where we can all get together in person and celebrate our resilience. 

However, we understand that the summer period is peak event season and therefore catering nominations will remain open and events can be provided from now until close of nominations next year.

We are currently busy behind the scenes to deliver an exciting special industry night of nights that we hope will provide some encouragement of good days to come. This event, aiming to be held late February, will celebrate the industry as a whole as well announce a few noteworthy people and venues that continued to show their vitality throughout the pandemic. More information on this event will be provided shortly.

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact the events team events@rca.asn.au or VIC/TAS Membership Executive Estelle Willing estelle@rca.asn.au.

Thank you for allowing R&CA to be the voice on the hospitality industry as we continue to fight for all restaurants, cafes and catering businesses across Australia.
