Event Manager Blog (EventMB), an international blog for meeting and event planners, has launched its first award - the Event Technology of The Year Award 2015. 

The award aims to recognise one event technology as ‘the best of the best’ and is open to all types of event technology, regardless of organisation size or experience.

The award, pioneered by EventMB founder Julius Solaris, will be judged by an expert panel of e-industry professionals with a passion for technology, including Kevin Jackson, VP of George P. Johnson EMEA and Dave Lutz, managing director of Velvet Chainsaw Consulting.

The Event Technology of the Year award will go to the company that best meets the following key criteria: innovation; user adoption; user experience; and commitment to the community.

Solaris said: “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.”

The winner will be announced at an exclusive reception at the Palazzo, Las Vegas, USA, on 14 October, 2015. The ceremony will be an invitation only event, including representatives from finalist organisations.
