Global Event Awards Announce Winners for 2015
The winners in the 6th edition of the Global Event Awards were announced last week at a spectacular gala ceremony during Eventex 2016! They come from the UK, USA, Finland, Belgium, the Netherlands, Russia, Poland, India and Australia.
The Event of the Year for 2015 is Microsoft Future Decoded - a grand 2-day event, providing a holistic experience of the “One Microsoft” proposition. The “un-business business event” created by Momentum - The Total Brand Experience agency - was impressive not only for telling the whole ‘One Microsoft’ story in one place for the first time but also for letting guests curate their personal Future Decoded experience based on what matters the most to them from the moment of receiving their invitation.
The agency that executed the Event of the Year also became Best Event Agency for 2015. With over 40 offices on 6 continents, Momentum is the trusted partner in creating meaningful experiences by companies like Coca Cola, American Express and Bentley Motors.
Overall, all winning events have one thing in common - excellent execution with the attendees interests in mind! See the full list of winners here.
Best Event Technology for 2015, as well as Best Event Mobile App is DoubleDutch with more than 1,500 customers, including SAP, UBM, and Urban Land Institute, and 260 +employees around the world in San Francisco, Amsterdam, London, and Hong Kong.
Over 120 event professionals gathered at a grand ceremony, lead by Masters in Moderation in Sofia, Bulgaria. The Awards night was part of the annual Eventex: a global innovative platform for event professionals who want to know the top industry trends, improve their know-how and network with top industry leaders.
“Eventex has come to age and deserves the support of the industry for its excellence in execution. I can only see the event growing from strength to strength from here.” - said Elling Hamso, one of the most influential people in the meetings and events industry.
Details on Eventex 2017 will be revealed in late May but if we quote this year’s moderator of the conference and the awards night, Jan-Jaap in der Maur: “If you take events seriously, you should be at Eventex”.
