The 14th Best Event Awards and the 2nd Best Location Awards are now open for entries. The two initiatives, aiming at promoting excellence in events and live communication, and at celebrating the best venues and destinations for events, will be at the heart of Bea World Festival, the essential meeting place and networking event for the international event community.
The upcoming edition of Bea World Festival will take place in Milan, Italy, from 27 to 30 November within the Live Communication Week, a new format launched by ADC Group, that will host both the Bea World Festiva land Bea Italy Festival. The event is conceived as a real business platform and a meeting point between supply and demand, aimed at celebrating the creativity and innovations that are redesigning the events and live communication industry, both on the local Italian market and worldwide.
As in previous years, nominees contesting for the renowned golden elephant awards will have the opportunity to showcase their projects live in front of a prestigious jury composed of top corporate event professionals plus senior representatives of national event agencies associations. A video tutorial explaining how to create a clear and well presented entry submission able to impress the jury and granting more chances to win is available on Bea World Festival website.
For the Best Event Awards 2019 ADC Group has introduced four new categories (Brand Activation, Festival, Institutional Ceremony and Hybrid event), in order to adapt to the evolving world of live communication.
So far the Best Event Awards have helped participating companies from 37 countries in finding inspiration and new ideas for their events and is now acknowledged as the main and most challenging international industry recognition.
