Christchurch conference wins

A Christchurch conference has been recognised among the world’s best at the Eventex 8th Global Event Awards.

The Social Enterprise World Forum 2017 (SEWF 2017) and hosted by the Ākina Foundation and organised by New Zealand professional conference organiser Conference Innovators, was awarded second place in the Best

Conference category by a panel of international events industry experts.

SEWF 2017 was judged runner-up to the Plenary Session of the Criteo Summit 2017, a gathering in the South of France for 2,700 guests, with Engage Prague 2017 in third place.

'We were up against some pretty stiff competition, some very innovative global events. To think that Christchurch, and Conference Innovators, are in that league is a massive achievement. It’s extremely gratifying,’ Tracey Thomas, director of Conference Innovators, says.
