It’s official – Eventex 2018 has its 80 finalists chosen among more than 150 entries submitted for the competition. All finalists are strong contenders for the top positions in one, and sometimes in more than one, of the 26 award categories. So far, this is the best edition of Eventex Awards – a record number of entries were submitted, from more than 35 countries.
How the best of the best are chosen
Each entry was assessed by a jury of experts and professionals with years of experience in events – renowned journalists from leading event magazines, heads of associations, representatives of convention bureaus, the most creative minds, the top influences, and thought leaders in the industry today. The main evaluation criteria for the awards are creativity and innovation, planning and execution and last but not least effectiveness and results.
The winners will be selected based on the average score from the jury votes – the highest scoring event in each category will grab the trophy. In the publicly voted People’s choice Event category the winners are ranked by the number of votes from the community and people that were engaged during the events. In the Best Agency, the winner is determined by the number of awards in the other categories.
Among the agencies with the most shortlisted entries are Kenes Group, Xsaga (who are also top of the inaugural Eventex All-stars Index among 20 agencies), BIND, Auditoire, VOK DAMS Agency and Creative Pro Group.

Who’s going to snag the prestigious Eventex trophies is still a mystery. We will announce the winners in each category and the final results during a special ceremony, which will be held on 6 March 2018. This year we decided to make the ceremony entirely online. This presents a great opportunity for agencies to organize independent events with their teams and clients and celebrate the success of being part of the best.
You are more than welcome to join the online ceremony – it takes a single click to become part of the show and find out the best events from around the world, the trend-setting agencies and the top innovations in the industry.
