The Australian Event Awards were held at the centre in 2017, during the Sunshine Coast’s three-year hosting run.
“I’m very grateful to have received this award,” said Edinger.
“I come from a family who contributed to community, and I believe in the power of the arts to make a positive impact on individuals and society.
“It has been a privilege to contribute to maximising access to the arts for Australians and I look forward to increasing opportunities for people to engage with the arts on the Sunshine Coast.”
Edinger has particularly driven change in national performing arts touring, which also supports venues.
