Jury and Evaluation – Best Location Awards

The Jury members of the Best Location Awards are senior representatives of national associations of events agencies from around the world.

Judging may consist of one or two rounds involving viewing, voting, debate and awarding of trophies. A first round of online voting, creating a shortlist, will be carried out only if the total number of entries exceeds the number of live presentations manageable on site. In this case, the shortlist will be published on the Bea World website on 18 November 2018. All (shortlisted) venues will be appraised ex novo, divided into categories, during the open voting sessions in Coimbra on 22 November 2018, during which entrants will have the chance to introduce the venue/destination live to the Jury. The Jury Panel will then determine the winners of each category.

Winners will be announced on 23 November 2018, during the Best Location Awards Ceremony in Coimbra.
