The best events from around the world competing for the prestigious Eventex trophies in 26 categories
Eventex Awards – possibly the most coveted and recognizable awards in the world of events – has just announced the finalists for the 8th edition of the competition. 80 finalists in 26 categories were chosen from a total of 156 entries from 35 countries around the world.
Each entry was assessed by a jury of experts and professionals with years of experience in events – renowned journalists from leading event magazines, heads of associations, representatives of convention bureaus, the most creative minds, the top influences, and thought leaders in the industry today. The main evaluation criteria for the awards are creativity and innovation, planning and execution and last but not least effectiveness and results. Among the agencies with the most shortlisted entries are Kenes Group, Xsaga (who are also top of the inaugural Eventex All-stars Index among 20 agencies), BIND, Auditoire, VOK DAMS Agency and Creative Pro Group.
The top 3 finalists in each category were selected by the averages of the score from different jury members. In the publicly voted People’s choice Event category the winners are ranked by the number of votes from the community and people that were engaged during the events. In the Best Agency category, the winner is determined by the number of awards in the other categories.
You can see all the finalists at the dedicated page on the Eventex website.
The winners in each category and the final results will be announced during a special ceremony, which will be held on 6 March 2018. This year the ceremony will be entirely online – another bold move from Eventex Awards. This new approach will give an opportunity to every single person in the world with internet access to watch the ceremony. At the same time it presents a great opportunity for agencies to organize independent events with their teams and clients and celebrate the success of being part of the best.
Anyone is welcome to join the online ceremony – it takes a single click to become part of the show and find out the best events from around the world, the trend-setting agencies and the top innovations in the industry.
