The Exhibition Gem of the Year

The Exhibition Gem of the Year is the exhibition presence that has the most merit in all its aspects. The winner has managed to make the most of its exhibition presence, from marketing to a moving customer experience before, during and after the event. A successful project is creative and achieves its targets.

The Stand of the Year

In this category, the award is granted to the exhibition stand which is designed and executed with creativity, without compromising the targets. A well-functioning stand contributes to the achievement of the targets and takes into account everything from an unforgettable customer experience to the personnel’s needs, regardless of the size or the budget.

The Exhibition Team of the Year

Smooth teamwork is at centre stage in a successful exhibition presence. The award for the Exhibition Team of the Year is granted to an exhibition project team who huffs and puffs all the while keeping the fire burning bright. The cornerstones of successful exhibition work are professional leadership, internal communications and making a good use of the skills of the team members.

The Marketing Professional of the Year

The category is looking for companies, organisations or brands that have managed to use the content of the event in their own marketing activities in a creative and fruitful manner before, during and after the event. Successful communications are part of marketing, too, and the Marketing Professional of the Year also excels in taking media representatives into account.

The Programme of the Year

The Programme of the Year exceeds the guests’ expectations, delights, entertains and evokes emotions – the experts share their know-how on the stage and the guests learn new things. At its best, the programme changes behaviour or opinions and leaves a lasting memory.

The Event of the Year

The Event of the Year stands out among thousands of events. The event is a carefully planned entity that speaks to the desired target audience. The category focuses on original execution, unforgettable experiences, results achieved and feedback provided by guests.

The Celebration of the Year

Celebrations bring people together in a festive mood. Successes are celebrated, excellence is praised and team spirit is improved. The Celebration of the Year is driven by the targets set. A successful celebration makes the guests smile, all the way from the Save the Date to the Thank You note.

The Convention of the Year

The Convention of the Year provides the participants with a setting for making significant decisions, sharing know-how and influencing others through networking. Successful arrangements ensure that the guests can focus on what is important: the programme itself and influencing others. Thorough planning can be seen in every detail, from invitations to post-event marketing.

The Exhibition of the Year

Exhibition media is nationwide media that brings together operators in the field, interested consumers, partners and media representatives. An exhibition is a meeting place that generates results and is proven to promote sales and marketing. For companies, the setting is optimal for meeting customers and finding new contacts. The Exhibition of the Year stimulates all senses and exceeds expectations in euros and in experiences.

The Impression-Maker of the Year

In this category, the award goes to the year’s most promising newcomer in the exhibitions and events sector or a seasoned veteran who has made a particular impression. The nominees are active and influential figures in the field who have boosted exhibition media with their actions. As we need both pioneers and visionaries to ensure the progress in the sector, we will reward the most merited of them annually.


The Exhibition Feat of the Year

The category looks for new and insightful ways to execute exhibitions. In the era of changes, someone needs to be the first. We present the award to a company, organisation or person that has, through its actions, cleared the path for others to a successful exhibition experience.
