At the Bea World Festival, where the best global events compete for gold, Conventa won first place in the category of green and sustainable events. Conventa’s groundbreaking 5R model convinced the esteemed international jury, who saw the methodology as a credible solution for organising future events sustainably.
The gala award ceremony 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 was organised in the Eternal City (Rome, Italy) from 24 to 26 November 2022.
Ten finalists competed for the top spot in the category of green and sustainable events. Mirre Van Tilburg, Head of Events at Capgemini and Jury VP, led the expert jury that evaluated the projects in this category.
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 organisers of Conventa emphasised that they have tremendous work in the future. Thus, their methodology will be tested between 1 and 2 February 2023 for the fifteenth edition of Conventa. In December 2022, the organisers will publish a guidebook available to all event organisers.
