2020 - No event due to Covid

In 2020 The David Awards was not run, due to Covid.

This decision was made because, although there were many stories of businesses valiantly pivoting or overcoming enormous challenges, the organisers felt there was a great deal of pain and hardship in the small business community as a whole. While some were figuring out a very uncertain future, others needed to use their energy and resources either to simply survive, or to cope with the enormous additional demands being put on them.
