The name of the president of the European Best Event Awards has been revealed: Carlo Hermes

Enrolment is underway for the European BEA, the contest conceived by Salvatore Sagone – President of the ADC Group – in 2004 and now in its fifth edition.

European BEA is the only award at a European level dedicated to the best events of the year. The objective of the Awards is to validate events as innovative forms of communication, integral to the media mix and an important part of a company’s wider marketing strategy.

This year, an ‘excellent’ professional has accepted the invitation to ‘direct’ the work of the EuBEA jury, who we will present to you today:


The EuBEA jury will be lead by Carlo Hermes, who has been involved in the corporate communication sector for over 23 years, with a particular focus on the organization of institutional events and large communication projects. He has fulfilled positions of responsibility in the Marketing and Communication environments of British Airways, Olivetti and Enel. In 2007 he was the Executive Director of the ‘Word Energy Congress’. Currently he is a consultant for the management of Ceremonies and Events of the Eni Group. He teaches communication and events management. Hermes is not new to this prestigious nomination, since he has already fulfilled the role of president of the EuBEA in 2005 and 2006.

 “The role of the President is to give visibility to all the members of the jury in order to guarantee a global evaluation and in particular give voice to all the European cultures and in the end to award the best European events, which I hope will not only be maga events, but above all events of great creativity and good execution. The crisis, like everything, also offers some positive elements. In particular I wish to highlight two aspects:
-clients receive more attention from the agencies
-projects of quality find the customer’s agreement and… also the budget.

The best will be even stronger in the future and participating in BEA is a way in order to deal with competition and to become known in the international market. Good luck to all of the participants!”.
