The 13th UNWTO Awards ceremony and gala dinner was organized by Eventisimo and was held in Madrid on January 16 and 18. As part of the event, there was a forum held at the Palacio de Neptuno, highlighting the importance of innovation in tourism and it also showcased the knowledge and achievements of all UNWTO Awards finalists, which was attended by 250 guests.
This was followed by the grand dinner and awards ceremony honoring the best incentives in the industry, which took place in the north auditorium of IFEMA. This venue was also used for the presentation of the 2017 International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development. It was just to make sure that the FITUR tourism show was being held at the same time at IFEMA.
With only four hours between both events, Eventisimo’s team had to change the venue’s design from the theatre format for the international presentation to a gala dinner format for over 400 guests.
Eventisimo coordinated everything smoothly including full production of the event, online registration, technical secretariat, event staff supervision, décor and staging and audiovisual and video production for the live video streaming of the event. Eventisimo was also one of the sponsors of the awards ceremony and the 2017 International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development.
