Calling all event graduates or newcomers to the events industry!
We are launching a competition for event industry newcomers to help design and shape our inaugural V Awards, which will recognise and celebrate the best in class across virtual and hybrid events at a live ceremony later this year.
“For many graduates, a pathway to an event career was destroyed by Covid-19 and we are here to offer some practical experience through our Disrupt the V Awards competition,” said micebook founder & CEO Chetan Shah.
The competition, which is being held in partnership with Event Grads UK, is open to anyone who is looking for a career in events and has struggled to get any practical experience.
As an individual or a team of up to three people, we are asking you to shape an element of the V Awards taking place live (hybrid) at the Nobu Portman Square on 3 September.
This can be an idea to shape any aspect of the event, from the invitation or registration through to arrival, entertainment, dinner, the awards, hybrid experience or post event reminders. Big or small we want to you to creatively design and deliver your idea LIVE at the V Awards so that they disrupt the normal awards experience.
The ideas should consider safety, sustainability and diversity. These elements are not crucial to winning this competition. If there are cost implications to your idea, this should be outlined as well as how these costs could potentially be covered.
We are looking for ideas that really disrupt the traditional awards format and bring real creativity, enjoyment and memorability to the evening. Ideas should also be practical and have a realistic chance of being implemented.
The winning team or teams will win the following:
- Plan, implement and deliver your idea with the support of the micebook event team, LIVE at the micebook V Awards night at the Nobu Hotel London Portman Square on 3rd September 2021
- Practical experience in delivering your idea
- Paid internship for the duration up to and including the awards night
- Presence and visibility at the event
- PR and promotion for the winning team or individuals to raise their profile and build their network
Entries will be judged by a subset of the main V Awards judges. Our prestigious judging panel features experienced experts representing a broad cross-section of the industry including representatives from corporate brands such as Barclays, Deloitte and Dell Technologies, agencies including Top Banana, Identity, Live Group and DRPG and event technology providers Glisser and Cvent.
