Best Design Awards 2021 - Neighbourhood Hosts for Finalists

To encourage the social ‘feels’ and vibes that encompass the night of Best for our communities, we have curated a set of Host Studio’s, across  neighbourhoods, who will host small gatherings for Best Finalists (as per under red light).

If you live close to a local host studio and are a finalist, you’ll have the opportunity to RSVP to go and enjoy the night, dressed up of course. See list below.

Please be considerate that there are limited RSVPs per Host Studio. So it is preferable that only small numbers per studio RSVP (not your whole team of 8+ where you can have your own party at your own studio).

ALL guests will be expected to BYO beverage & BYO food.

Only double vaxxed may attend a neighbourhood party.

Friday 18th February
Arrival from 5.30pm
Showtime 6.30pm sharp
