Event Manager Blog launches inaugural Event Technology of The Year Award

Event Manager Blog (EventMB), a leading international blog for meeting and event planners, has launched its first ever award, the Event Technology of The Year Award 2015. The award is designed to recognise just one event technology as ‘the best of the best’ and is open to all types of event technology, regardless of size of organisation or experience. .

The award, pioneered by EventMB founder Julius Solaris, will be judged by an expert panel of experienced industry professionals with a passion for technology, including Kevin Jackson, Vice President of George P Johnson EMEA and Dave Lutz, Managing Director of Velvet Chainsaw Consulting. The accolade of Event Technology of the Year will be awarded to the company that best meets the following key criteria: innovation; user adoption; user experience; and commitment to the community.

Julius comments: “There are numerous awards out there but the idea behind the Event Technology of The Year award was to create something that our readers will engage with and provide tech companies of every size a chance to showcase their achievements via our platform. Event Manager Blog has been passionate about event tech since 2007 and we know that our readers value our expertise in this sector; it is a natural evolution for our community.

“We are looking for just one winner - difficult I know, but the concept is to truly find something exceptional and give real recognition to an event tech company that has made a real difference to meetings and events experiences. Our panel of judges is passionate about event tech and we believe is well positioned to evaluate entries from a variety of companies to filter out the truly distinguished products.”

All entries to the Event Technology of the Year Award will get significant profile opportunities via the EventMB blog, including their video pitch in the Reader’s Choice Award section, a showcase in the weekly spotlight blog and a participant badge for use in marketing.

The final winner will be announced at an exclusive reception at the Palazzo, Las Vegas, USA, on October 14th 2015. The ceremony will be an invitation only event, including representatives from finalist organisations. There will also be golden ticket prize opportunities for 10 lucky EventMB readers.
