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?
I look for memorable experiences people will talk about long after the event finishes. Something that is different, creative, meaningful and inspires connections – because this is why events exist, for people to meet each other and have fun while at it. Too many events focus on Instagrammability alone, which is important these days of course, but if you leave an event with only an Instagram picture, what’s left? Real human connections and their creative facilitation is what makes events memorable.
Q: How will your background influence the way you look at entries?
Creativity and good ideas are always the first thing I look for. The second thing is making a smart connection between a creative idea and the brand behind it, because this is what creates meaning and results.
Q: Why are competitions like the Conventa Best Event Awards important?
It’s important to give credit to quality because this is what pushes any industry forward. The same is with events.
Q: What advice would you give to agencies and brands thinking about what events to put forward for Conventa Best Event Awards?
Show why did you do what you did and how did your event makes a difference.
