An award-winning project in the new post pandemic context must… "have clear objectives, use technology where it makes sense and immerse the audiences."
My advice to the nominees is... "Enjoy this time at the event to the fullest as it is already an honour to be nominated."
“Live Free” is Bea World 2022 Claim. What is live free for you?… "Live free is not being tight down by any boundaries. Be creative and limitless in order to make your event a success."
