By entering in at least 1 category within a track, you also automatically enter the respective Grand Prix category.
The Grand Prix Best Agency category is decided by the number of accolades an agency is awarded for their work. Gold Award: 100 points, Silver Award: 50 points, Bronze Award: 30 points.

People’s Choice group 
Each Track has its own People’s Choice category where the winners are decided by public voting. The People’s Choice categories are: People’s Choice Live Event, People’s Choice Live Experience, People’s Choice Digital Event/Experience, People’s Choice Marketing Campaign, People’s Choice Event Technology, People’s Choice Production/Supplier, People’s Choice Venue.

By entering in at least 1 category within a track, you also automatically enter the respective People’s Choice category for free.


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 initially assessed to make sure it meets the eligibility criteria and see if all fields are filled in correctly. If so, the entry gets approved and continues into the evaluation phase. If an entry gets rejected, our team shall provide feedback on the reasons it was rejected, so edits and corrections can be made before re-submitting the entry.

All approved entries in a category are then evaluated on their own merit and based on the set criteria, instead of getting judged against each other. The final score of the entry is the average score of each jury member.

In order to receive an award, an entry has to meet a minimum final score of:
Gold Award – 75 points
Silver Award – 65 points
Bronze Award – 55 points

Our Research & Development team spent years perfecting this process, focusing on better structure and more accurate, fair and balanced entry evaluation.
