How are the jury members selected?
The jury panel is the heart of our awards since it has the most important task. That’s why we cherry-pick every member.
For us, there are two key factors in the selection:
- the juror’s extensive experience in the industry
- making sure there’s no conflict of interest
The selected judges have diverse fields of expertise to cover the 7 main groups in Eventex Awards – Events, Agencies & Teams, Technology, Suppliers, Destinations, Hotels & Venues.
What is the evaluation methodology?
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. 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 with their own set weight that are different for the 2 main groups:
- Agencies & Teams, Technology, Suppliers, Destinations, Venues, Hotels
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 judging process is made simple due to the awards management platform Evalato. You can learn more about our evaluation methodology here.
