Award Winning Events Agency

July 8, 2021

What are Agency Awards?

Agency awards seek to recognize the top events agencies out there. Events agencies help businesses and organizations that don’t have the internal infrastructure to organize seminars, conferences, and other business events themselves. Events agencies use project management to create stellar conferences, seminars, product launches, incentive travel, and corporate team building days. They organize everything from creating an amazing event concept to planning all of the logistics to coordinating the technical aspects to actually delivering the event.

As one of the best award winning events agency, SmartWorks organizes events that suit your specific expectations and delivers the business outcomes you want from a basic concept or idea.  These might include developing new business, launching a new product, or simply empowering your staff. They deliver everything you want and need within your desired budget. In this guide, we discuss the best event awards and event company awards.

Awards & Recognition

SmartWorks has won a number of different event awards in a few different areas, including the biggest event company awards, corporate event awards, event planning awards, marketing events awards, and event design awards:

Corporate Event Awards

Corporate event awards are awarded to some of the top event management companies in the corporate event planning sector. In 2020, SmartWorks won the Gold Prize for Best Animation Show by EventoPlus. The EventoPlus Awards are presented to companies in the events and meetings sector in Spain and Portugal. The goal of the EventoPlus Awards is to stimulate creativity, improve professionalism, promote good event management practices, recognize the talent and involvement of all clients, agencies, and suppliers, and give pride to the top companies in the sector.

Following a transparent nomination process, the award winners are chosen by an independent jury using criteria defined by the organization.  The EventoPlus organization does not intervene in the award winner voting process.  Presentation galas for the EventoPlus Awards have definitely varied in format over the years. Usually, they offer an annual meeting for professionals in the sector, which is an excellent networking opportunity. In 2021, SmartWorks won the top prize for the best animation show. CWT Meetings & Events and Mapfre won the Silver Prize, while Staff Events and Mondragon Corporation won the Bronze Prize for the best animation show.

Event Planning Awards

Event planning awards are offered to some of the top event planning companies in the world. For example, in 2020, SmartWorks was a finalist for the Bea World shortlist. Bea World is an initiative that recognizes and promotes excellence in live communication and events across the world. The organization’s International Festival of Events and Live Communication takes place each year to recognize shortlist finalists. The initiative was created back in 2006 to promote the importance of events in the marketing plans of both large and small corporations. 

Formerly known as the European Best Event Awards or EuBea, the Best Event Awards help event planning agencies from 40 countries around the world find new ideas and inspiration for their events. These awards are now considered the most challenging international recognition in the events agency industry. Shortlisted events agencies have the opportunity each year to present their projects live to the Jury and Bea World Festival delegates. 

Participating in the Bea World festival gives events agencies the opportunity to present their best projects to the corporate jury and audience, be recognized with an international quality certificate, win one of the awards, and receive qualified visibility and press return at an international level.  They also gain an awareness and business advantage over their competitors, and they learn from the best practices of other companies as well as from different creative and cultural approaches.

Bea World Jury members are chosen from sponsorship, communications, and marketing managers with international and local responsibilities from reputable multinational corporations in a wide range of different countries and sectors.  Jury members may also be some of the top investors in live communication and senior representatives of event agencies’ associations who are partners of the festival. The Jury Panel grants all winners with an international quality acknowledgment. Quality at Bea World means strategic communication, creativity, innovation, effectiveness, and technique. SmartWorks was recognized as a finalist for the Bea World shortlist this past year.

Marketing Events Awards

Marketing events awards are given to some of the best event management agencies in the marketing events sector. In 2020, SmartWorks won the Gold Prize for the best events at night at the FIP Festival. Set in Argentina, the FIP Festival is an international marketing festival, new communication techniques, innovation, and events. For the past 21 years, the FIP Festival has sought to recognize recipients for marketing in social networks, new communication technologies, sustainable marketing, brand experience, mobile marketing, corporate social responsibility, content innovation, sports marketing, events, unconventional advertising, virtual reality, children’s marketing, celebrity marketing, and health and human development.

Event Design Awards

Event design awards recognize event agencies that have gone above and beyond in the event design sector. These awards are offered to companies for excellence in designing events such as conferences, conventions, festivals, competitions, symposiums, trade fairs, trade shows, award shows, contests, and others. This is not simply a type of award for interior decoration, graphics, communication, and architecture but an award that encompasses everything involved with the design of events.
