JudgingFor Scoring Round I, which takes place prior to the Awards Finals, you will be allocated 5-8 entries to assess according to your experience and expertise. This scoring takes place online, and our Awards Manger software makes the whole process straightforward: you read the entries, then submit your scores and written comments. You'll have four weeks to complete this part of the judging process.
At the Awards Finals on October 24, you’ll conduct the Scoring Round II as part of a live judging panel. You'll watch and assess a series of 15-minute live presentations followed by 15 minutes of questions. After the Q&A, judges submit their scores and provide written feedback. This feedback is included in the Benchmark Report that is emailed to each finalist after the event.
Later that same day, you'll also be able to attend the Awards Ceremony in Dubai.
Network and ConnectThe Awards will be a large gathering of hundreds of sustainability professionals – both judges and finalists. During several breaks throughout the day, you can take the time to connect with other participants and gain fresh insights into the customer experience, as well as participating in Roundtable discussions on the latest trends.
Spread the WordIn the build-up to the Awards Finals, we’ll provide a Judge’s Personal Promo Card and Judge Logo to help you promote your involvement on social media. You can also submit content to the Customer Experience Magazine and establish yourself as a reputable thought leader and sustainability expert.
