Bea World Jury members are chosen among marketing/communications/sponsorship managers with local or international responsibilities from well-known multinational corporations, from a representative range of sectors and countries, big investors in live communication, plus senior representatives of event agencies’ associations from different countries in the world who are partners of Bea World Festival.
The shortlist will be decided by a preliminary online voting session. On 28 November, 2019, in Milan, all shortlisted events will have the chance to be presented live to the Jury and the audience by the entrant event agencies and will be voted again to establish the ranking in each category. Jurors will then decide the podium of the Best Event Awards, as well as the Iconic Award, if deemed appropriate.
All awarded events will be announced on 29 November 2019, during the Awards Ceremony.
