The purpose of SAPIA’s Industry Awards Program is to support the association’s goal of promoting excellence in sports court, sports field, playground and recreation facility design, construction, maintenance, surfacing and servicing as well as product innovation. The program recognises the work of its members who are participating in achieving this goal, and provides members with the opportunity to celebrate their work.

In its 23rd year of competition, SAPIA members submitted a record 108 Awards entries in 2023, every one of them a resounding endorsement that members of the Sports & Play Industry Association are Australasia’s experts in the design, construction, surfacing and installation of sports facilities and playgrounds.

The 2024 Industry Awards presentation will be held at the SAPIA National Conference’s Gala Dinner on the evening of Friday 6 September.
