Superheroes in the World of Events - Winners Global Eventex Awards 2017

During the 7th edition of the Eventex Awards this week in Dublin, the most outstanding achievements in the world of events were awarded. The biggest names in the industry were competing for the awards.

 

The list of finalists brought together event and technology professionals from UK, USA, Netherlands, Israel, Ireland, Slovakia, Austria, Belgium, Italy, the Czech Republic, Spain, Turkey, Finland, Russia, Poland, and Portugal! The total number of over 30 countries that were represented in the 7th Eventex awards was record-breaking in the entire history of the event!

 

The Event Technology categories were dominated by entries from the United States - a total of 10 finalists across the four categories in this group. However, the winners were companies from three different countries. Slido (Slovakia) won Best Event Technology; Attendify (US) took the prize for Best Event App, and the event marketing cloud Feathr (US) became Best New Event Technology. The host country, Ireland, won the trophy for Best Interaction Technology for the Wall of Support at the VHI Womens Mini Marathon by Verve the Live Agency.


The People's Choice Event is Allerhande Kerstfestival, executed by Xsaga. Sipahiler Events' Istanbul TALKS Inspired 2016 Conference was the second favourite event among voters.

 

Walk Events, Momentum Worldwide and Xsaga stole the spotlight by winning most awards for the night: 2 for each company. This is not the first victory for Xsaga and Momentum: they were winners in previous editions of Eventex awards – Momentum became Best Event Agency last year and took the grand prize for Event of the Year (Microsoft Future Decoded 2015); Xsaga won Best Cultural Event and Best Campaign 2015.

 

In conclusion, a total of 13 awards went to US companies, 11 to the UK, 8 to Ireland, 7 to the Netherlands, 4 to Belgium, 3 to Austria and Italy, 2 to Poland, Portugal and Slovakia. The Czech Republic, Finland, Spain and Turkey all went home with one award each.
