What is Conventa Best Event Award?

Conventa Best Event Award is an annual competition that awards the best events in the region of New Europe. The competition was established as part of the Conventa brand. For the past six years, the grand finale of the competition has been taking place at the Conventa Crossover conference. The evaluation of registered events follows a unique 80:20 model (80% of the votes come from the jury and 20% from the audience at the Conventa Crossover conference).

How does the competition take place?

In the first phase of evaluation, the jury carries out a pre-selection of the registered projects and chooses the semi-finalists. In the second phase, all members of the jury panel evaluated each project according to the following criteria: creativity, relevance, innovation, execution, event results, event communication, sustainable policies, legacy, and overall final impression. Based on the evaluated criteria, projects exceeding the threshold are moved into the finals. The finalists present their projects live at Conventa Crossover. Attendees are able to support their favourite event agency by joining the live voting session and contributing 20% to the final score.
