Jury and public voting
Top Event Organizers & Agencies Index
Our team has spent years perfecting the evaluation process to make sure your entries get fair and balanced scores.
Upon submission each entry is assessed to ensure all the fields are filled out in accordance with the requirements and that the entry meets the eligibility criteria. If an entry is approved, it continues into the evaluation phase. Rejected entries receive feedback from our team on why the entry got rejected and how to make the necessary changes for re-submission. Last minute entries that get rejected are not eligible for re-submission.
All approved entries in a category are then evaluated on their own merit, based on the set criteria. The final score of an entry is the total average score from the ratings given by each jury member in the category.
Every year we invite experts and professionals from the world of events to form our jury panel – from event magazine journalists and heads of associations, to representatives of convention bureaus, top influencers and thought leaders, each with an in-depth understanding of the industry’s ever-changing landscapes.
Each entry is evaluated by a panel of 4 – 8 judges, within a set of categories assigned in accordance with their field of expertise. The process ensures that any affiliations of a judge with any of the competing entries are taken into consideration, and respectively no judges are assigned categories where such entries are present.
