Bea World: Where Creativity Meets Business

Bea World Festival, November 15-18th, 2017, Porto

Between November 15th and 18th, 2017, Porto, which was nominated Best European destination of the year, will welcome Bea World – The International Festival of Events and Live Communication and the Awards Ceremony celebrating the winners of the Best Event Awards.

 The experience and prestige gained over the past 11 years by EuBea – the European Best Event Awards – decreed that time was right to take a decisive step and ensure that Bea World took the place of EuBea. Thus, starting from this year, companies from the event industry based anywhere across the world will contend for the renowned golden elephant awards in a new competition that promises to be the most challenging of all time!

 Projects will be judged by a Jury panel composed by top corporate event managers with international responsibility recognised for their achievements and coming from a representative range of sectors, plus members of event agencies’ associations who are partners of Bea World Festival. During the Festival, all shortlisted events will have the opportunity to be presented live to the corporate Jury who will grant all winners an indisputable international quality acknowl­edgement.

Bea World will take on EuBea’s legacy to affirm itself as the essential meeting place and networking event for the international event community.
