Best Online Experience – NEW

This is a new award to reflect the explosion of virtual events and remote experiences we’ve seen in the past year, including festivals, building tours and talks.

Many of these have not only pushed the boundaries of what online experiences can look like, but have been successful in finding new audiences among those who previously found it difficult to attend events in-person.

For this award we’re looking for standout online experiences, whether a large event such as a festival or an event hosted in-house. We want to know how the event has strengthened the connection with your audience and benefitted your business in the process.
