Winners of BizBash's 10th Annual Event Experience Awards

Since the inception of BizBash's Event Experience Awards (EEAs) 10 years ago, the program has awarded forward-thinking virtual events, strategic hybrid events, ultra-creative live events, and swoon-worthy destination events. This year is no different. And thanks to advancements in tech, the emergence of hybrid as a mainstream event model, and the desire to connect, this may just be our most impressive list of winners yet.

With nearly 500 submissions across 70-plus categories, here are the winners (in no particular order) of BizBash's 10th Annual EEAs, as determined by our advisory board...
