A few years back we completely changed our approach to organizing Eventex Awards, in order to be as sustainable as possible. As difficult as that was, it was the responsible thing to do as a company.The Event Awards trophies are a key part of that, of course, so we wanted to share some more information about these symbols of excellence that have become the most sought after award in the industry. For this edition of the competition, we are again partnering with Barcelona’s excellent OiKo Design Office to create a fully recyclable trophy.
Sure, it’s not exactly made of sugar, spice, and everything nice, but it’s close. The main part is recycled plastic from post-consumer packaging plastic waste - the material is processed into a new one with unique properties, amazing texture and high weight. The complementary material is an iron sheet with high recycled content as well, painted with water-based black paint. And of course the icing on the cake - the stylish Eventex Awards symbol that is synonymous with excellence.
We couldn’t be happier with our “green” trophies!
Recyclable or not, our trophies still require a lot of materials and time to be produced. They have to then be carefully packaged and sent across the globe to be transported to their destinations. It’s the opposite of sustainable and we felt it’s time to reduce our footprint even further. That’s why trophies are no longer included in the registration fee, but can be ordered additionally and sent to you on request.
As usual, we are going heavy on the digital goods, so you can make the best of your achievements on the channels that matter. Being shortlisted as one of the Eventex Awards finalists gets you a certificate of excellence. You can print it, frame it, and hang it on the wall in your office like a boss. Maybe even take a picture with it - it’d make for an excellent post on popular social media channels like Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, etc.
As a finalist you also get an official digital seal to use on your website, in emails, etc. In today’s age when everything is done via the Internet, this remains a great way of improving your company’s image and gaining more business opportunities.
In 2018 we decided to go 100% online with Eventex Awards and never looked back. We did it to be more sustainable and reduce our footprint - and it worked! To name a few key benefits, suddenly we were using considerably less materials, logistics were kept down to a minimum, and no food service meant no post-ceremony mountains of waste! The added value was this also made the competition more accessible to everyone, so Eventex Awards has kept growing exponentially ever since!
