Entry evaluation

Eventex Awards is a completely transparent competition so once the winners are announced, everything is made public and your entries become a showcase of the best practices, the most original ideas, and the top innovations in the world of events.

Submission process

When you submit an entry for Eventex Awards, our team checks if it meets the necessary requirements. Once approved, it is ready for evaluation by our panel of esteemed judges.


We invite experts and professionals with years of experience in events to form the judging panel – event magazine journalists, heads of associations, representatives of convention bureaus, top influencers and thought leaders from the industry.

Each entry is evaluated by 5 to 10 judges, who are assigned to categories in accordance with their field of expertise. Every judge is required to declare affiliations with any of the competing entries and is not assigned to a category with such entries.

The People’s Choice categories are decided by public voting.

What winners get

  • Winners trophy, 2nd and 3rd place trophy

The rating system

Top priority for us is making sure all worthy entries get the recognition they deserve. The Eventex Awards ratings are based on 3 key criteria:

For events

Innovation & Creativity

Objectives, Planning & Execution

Effectiveness & Results

For agencies & teams, technology, suppliers, destinations, venues, and hotels


Creativity & Innovation

Achievements & Results

The judges evaluate an entry with scores from 1 to 10 in three key criteria. Each criterion has a set weight and together they form the total score of the entry. The entry with the highest overall score is awarded first place. Only entry with an overall score of 70 or better in a category can be announced as its winner. The second and third place are also announced and awarded trophies. Only entries with an overall score of 50 or better in a category can be announced in second and third place.

Our Research and Development team spent years perfecting this process. We focused on better structure and a more accurate, fair and balanced method of evaluating each entry in a given category.

The Best Event award goes to the event with the highest rating across all event categories. The People’s Choice categories are decided by public voting.
