Texas Feels Slovenia: A second place and the best event of the year by the audience

At the Conventa Best Event Award 2023 ceremony, Texas Feels Slovenia achieved an impressive second place among seven finalists in the broader region for the best crossover event category. Additionally, it earned the prestigious audience award for being voted the best event of the year. Texas Feels Slovenia was organized by seven partners.

Ljubljana hosted the eighth edition of Conventa Crossover, a gathering of event organizers and creative minds from the tourism industry. Among the highlights was the award-winning event known as the Texas Feels Slovenia event, crafted by a dedicated team of seven partners.

This exceptional project, evaluated by a panel of 20 distinguished global experts, secured an impressive second place in the Crossover Event category, which caters to both the general public and business audiences.

It also earned the coveted title of "Best Event" by public vote, standing out as the favourite among all the entries.

A remarkable 37 events from 14 different countries were shortlisted for top awards across the four primary categories: B2B, B2C, B2E, and Crossover. The expert panel assessed the finalists, employing a rigorous 80/20 evaluation model that combines the judgment of the expert jury (accounting for 80% of the vote) with input from the Conventa Crossover audience (contributing 20%). This evaluation process unfolded in real-time, as each finalist presented their project to both the jury and the audience.
