Portuguese Agency Wins Best Internal Event in the European Best Event Awards


The balance for the Portuguese agencies in this year's edition of the European Best Event Awardshas resulted in two winners, with a gold and a bronze award.

The first place was presented to the Desafio Global Ativism for Best Internal Company Event / Convention, for its EDP One - Together for Better Energy. One of the main features of this event was the 360 degree projection with a length of 300 metres and a height of 10 metres as the surround and decoration of the event venue. A total of 15 teams with 450 people were needed to erect the 3,000m2 screen, 66 loudspeakers, 60,000 watts of power, 280,000 lumen of video projection. It was also ensured that 90 percent of the led lighting was low consumption. Another feature was the use of augmented reality in the contents of the speakers. The event was addressed to seven thousand EDP employees, the Portuguese energy company, gathered at Meo Arena in Lisbon for another edition of the EDP Meetings, performing since 2004.

The bronze for Best Musical Event was awarded to Action4 Ativism, for its Vodafone Music Sessions event - Seasick Steve in the Paredes de Coura Music Festival.

Francisco Serzedello received the prize, on behalf of both Ativism agencies, and Neuza Silva represented EDP, on November 6th in Seville. Serzedello shared his satisfaction for adding these awards to the many that already compose the Desafio Global and Action4 portfolio. "We were already delighted with being named (for the shortlist) and we are even more delighted that Portugal was recognised once again. We continue to prove every year that Portugal is on top of what is best made in Europe, in what events are concerned."
