The 8th selection of New Europe's influencers

The results are in! The voting for the most influential people of New Europe in 2021 has come to a close. The list of influencers was viewed by 6.832 people, while 1.711 people cast their votes. The voting poll was open from 10 December 2021 till 21 January 2022.

Kongres Magazine’s selection of the Most Influential People of New Europe has earned recognition from the international meetings industry. The selection is not just another online voting that gives doubtable results. On the contrary, it is a thorough selection of individuals that have left their mark on the regional meetings industry. We hope you will find our list valuable the next time you organise your event. It is with pride that we can say that we have been able to create a credible list of the most trustworthy professional in 2021. Hence, our project is not a competition, rather a professional platform that we will continue evolving.

For each chosen candidate, the respondents had to fill out a grading scale which comprised of five marks (from 1 to 5); 1 meaning that they completely disagree with the statement (terrible), and 5, meaning that they fully agree with the statement (excellent). The final mark was calculated as an average of scores from the following categories:

  1. CREDIBILITY: The candidate is recognised as a highly credible individual within the regional meetings industry.
  2. CREATIVITY: The candidate showcased creativity and agility in their work. Particularly during the corona crisis, they executed innovative projects.
  3. RESULTS: The candidate achieved financial or other multiplicative results that were above average compared to the regional average.
  4. LEGACY: The candidate left a permanent mark by working for the common good of the meetings industry. Even in COVID-19 times, they strived to find a way out of the crisis.

We would like to sincerely congratulate the winners and all of the nominees on their impressive achievement and pledge to further develop and evolve the project in the following years.
