The first finalists of #CBEA20 are known!



The first finalists of the ​Conventa Best Event Award ​competition were announced at Conventa Crossover conference, that took place from 27 to 28 August 2020. In light of the current situation, the competition has been restructured, with more event categories (online events can compete for the first time) and easier application conditions. This year, the competition is taking place in two parts; Semifinal 1 and Semifinal 2.

Semifinal 1: The finalists are already known!
(For projects that were carried from 1st January 2019 to 17 July 2020)

Semifinal 2: You can still apply! (Deadline: 11 DECEMBER 2020)
(For projects that were carried from 1 January 2020 to 11th December 2020)

How does it work?

Videos from the finalists of Semifinal 1 were played to the Conventa Crossover audience, but live voting did not take place yet. Finalists from both semifinals will come together on 19 January 2021 at Conventa Trade Show, where live voting by the audience will take place. All finalists will have to prepare a short pitch that will convince the audience to vote for their projects. The participants at Conventa 2021 will, therefore, give their final vote (80% of votes will come from the expert jury and 20% from the audience) in order to select the winner.
