Bea World Festival

The Best Event Awards

Bea World is an initiative that recognises and promotes excellence in events and live communication across the whole world and takes place in the context of Bea World – The International Festival of Events and Live Communication.

Created in 2006 to foster and advance the importance of events in the marketing plans of large and smaller corporations, the Best Event Awards (formerly known as EuBea – European Best Event Awards) have helped participating agencies from 37 countries in finding inspiration and new ideas for their events, and are now acknowledged as the main and most challenging international industry recognition. As in previous years, shortlisted agencies contesting for the renowned golden elephant awards will have the opportunity to present their projects live to the Jury and Bea World Festival delegates.

Who can enter

Bea World is open to companies from the event and communication industry based anywhere across the world, including event agencies, public relations, communications, promotions, advertising and web agencies, corporate companies, public bodies, associations, non-governmental and non-profit organizations, locations, etc.

Jury and evaluation

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 who are partners of Bea World Festival.

The Jury Panel will grant all winners an indisputable international quality acknowledgement. And quality at Bea World means creativity, innovation, effectiveness, technique, strategic communication: a series of key features that, combined with all other “ingredients”, make an event a rewarding live communication experience for the audience. Big and small events have the same chances to win, regardless of their budget, being creativity, innovation, and effectiveness the main criteria for evaluation.
