Chief editor / owner

Sjoerd Weikamp


After studying Journalism and Communication Science I roled into a chief editorship at Reed Business‘ eventmarketingmagazine. After a couple of years we started our own mediaplatform EventBranche.nl in the heart of the Dutch industry of eventmarketing and live communication. And as we practice what we preach: our multimedia platform has 5 big own event per year. These events vary from networkevents, congresses, a beachparty for eventprofs to the Gouden Giraffe Event Awards, the awardshow for the Dutch eventindustry that won an BEA award for the best awardshow in the world. Next to that I am a speaker about trends and developments in the eventmarketing and live comm. industry.

An award-winning project must..."show the power of LIVE: creativity, sustainability, innovation, strategy and digital tools to create the biggest impact in the marcom-mix".

My advice to the nominees..."use all your event excellence and your creative, innovative and strategic choices to showcase the impact!".

A quote about your past experience at EuBea/Bea World..."If you come over to BEA World you will straight away experience why it's called The Best Event Awards: seeing the best events, meeting the best network!".
