CONVENTA BEST EVENT AWARD 2019
Organizers of mind-blowing events from New European region are invited to enter the competition that will again acknowledge the best in the event business. All submitted entries will be evaluated by a jury consisting of international experts from the field of event organisation. We sat down to talk to the dream-team jury member of Conventa Best Event Award, Stefan Kozak.
Q: What do you look for when you’re judging the best events?
Working with events as POC (points of content), „Umbrella thinking“, Authenticity, Simplicity, Creativity, Experiences with a direct and clear impact on targets/objectives/goals
Q: How will your background influence the way you look at entries?
I am sure about one thing, in the past 16 years, I have done around 3 427 267 mistakes, while developing our event & live comm agencies and projects on four different markets. These failures help me at most to grow up professionally and so I believe this self-experienced „eventpedia“ could influence also the others 🙂
Q: Why are competitions like the Conventa Best Event Awards important?
To learn and stay humble, every time and always. The only way, how to be able to recognize, experience the overall event industry shifts are the competitions, where you can feel and understand different approaches and live comm outlooks from the view of different markets and of course also from your possible competitors and market influencers.
Q: What advice would you give to agencies and brands thinking about what events to put forward for Conventa Best Event Awards?
Choose the best ones. Those you strongly believe in. Explain and show why you believe that this is the best one. Build it up on your project´s extra miles – it can be a strong creative idea, lasting impact, visuality, dramaturgy and so on, pls do not just explain what and how have you done the project. Last but not least, without the right storytelling, there is no story-selling.
