The gala award ceremony of the Bea saw 103 finalists from 28 countries go head to head for the coveted awards in various categories. A record-breaking 320 projects from 97 leading global agencies from 32 countries entered the competition. The event took place in Rome from 24 to 26 November 2022.

Ten finalists competed for the top spot in the category of green and sustainable events. The events that received the highest marks from the jury were: 

  • 3rd place: The digital ID.5 Experience, fischerAppelt, live marketing GmbH, Germany
  • 2nd place: Green&Blue Festival, Piano B, Italy
  • 1st place: Conventa Experience 2022, Toleranca marketing d.o.o., Slovenia

Gorazd Čad, the co-founder of Conventa, shared his thoughts on receiving the prestigious award: “The Bea Award is the best gift for our fifteenth anniversary and a milestone for us. Without our esteemed strategic partners, Ljubljana Tourism, Slovenian Convention Bureau and the Slovenian Tourist Board, alongside 19 loyal partners, we could never organise such a project. The Slovenian NGO Umanotera and Climate Partner played a pivotal role in organising the event in 2022. They helped us sustainably transform the award-winning project.”

The Bea (Best Event Awards) is the oldest and most prestigious global competition within the meetings industry that has taken place for the past seventeen years. The core categories within the competition are B2B, B2C and B2I events. In addition, the competition comprises 20 different sub-categories. The Gold Elephant Trophy is considered the Oscar of the meetings industry.
