Every year Conventa draws attention to excellence in the meetings industry with an award for the best event in 'New Europe'.
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. The winner will be announced on 29 August 2019 during the Conventa Crossover conference in Ljubljana.
Who became the best event of New Europe?
39 applications, 20 finalists and 4 winners!
HOW IT WORKS
Evaluation of submitted events is carried out on a three-stage basis according to a unique 80:20 model (80% of votes are contributed by the jury whilst the expert audience at the Conventa Crossover event contribute the remaining 20%).
The jury consists of 12 members who participate and have equal votes in evaluating the submitted entries. Every member of the jury makes their decision individually on the basis of their expert knowledge, reputation and authority. Each member also has the right to raise objections and questions, as well as an obligation to explain the scores given when evaluating entries to receive the main award. The work of the jury is planned and monitored by a representative of the organisational
board of the Conventa Best Event Award.
A chairperson and vice-chairperson will be chosen from among all members of the jury, who will have the deciding vote. A deciding vote is used only in cases where the results of the jury’s votes are tied.
Members of the jury are excluded from evaluation entries in which they are, or have been, personally involved, or where their companies or agencies are involved. The jury can decide not to make an award in a certain category if it decides unanimously that entries in an individual category do not meet the standards of the award.
All the interim results of the evaluations of entries, the interim evaluations by individual members of the jury and the content of discussions among members of the jury are confidential. All members of the jury and the representative of the organisational board for the Conventa Best Event Award are committed to secrecy.
