Last night, we held the Social Media Marketing Awards Virtual Gala. Normally we hold the Gala in Sydney but due to the pandemic, we moved online.
It was a great night, with our MC John Kapos bringing so much to our livestream.
With the theme “Hollywood at Home”, our finalists celebrated with their family and colleagues wherever they were in the world.
