Agencies from 27 countries across the globe have applied for the 16th Best Event Awards World Experience – the first and most authoritative event industry award. The number of projects has reached pre-covid levels, with 268 entries assessed by an influential Jury chaired by Ulrike Tondorf, Head of Live & Experience Branding at AG Bayer.

The 16th Edition of Bea World Festival will be an all-digital edition, with the clear objective of identifying and providing the market with the necessary strategies to interpret the ongoing evolution towards digitisation and inform on the actions taken to provide creative solutions.

It will offer all participants the opportunity to see the world’s best-in-class events, network with peers and industry leaders, and learn business strategies and new trends through inspiring keynotes and technical workshops.
