On next January 10th, 2019, one of the major shows in the event industry will take place in San Diego: the Special Events – Gala Awards. This key meeting, alongside the Special Event itself, will reward 34 winners who managed to make the difference with their events and solutions during the year. Once again, the whole VIBE Agency’s team is proud to announce that it will be there as a finalist.


This meeting is known to be the oldest and the most prestigious show in the event industry. Each year since 1986, the Gala Awards, presented by the Special Event Magazine, have recognized the best independent, corporate and association planners for their contribution to the business. On January 10th, 2019, the “crème de la crème” of event planning, coming from 13 different countries and selected by the Special Events Advisory Board, will finally know if they are part of the 34 winners.

The categories embrace all the aspects of the profession, from the best multiple-day incentive event to the best new event product/technology, or from the best event staged in multiple locations to the most outstanding spectacle. Catering, lighting, fundraising, wedding, logistics, technical support, and many other specialties will also be brought to light.


Last year already, our team could be proud to be finalist in the “Best Multiple-Day Event Program for a Corporation or Association” category. This recognition came after a great event that VIBE Agency had designed in Miami for the beauty and cosmetics company COTY. For the Gala Awards 2019, VIBE Agency proposed 3 entries for categories:

  • “Best Multiple-Day Event Program for Corporation or Association” with Hermès in Los Cabos, Mexico
  • “Best Event Produced for a Corporation or Association: Budget $100.000 to $249.000” with McDonald’s at Fantasy of Flight, Florida
  • “Best New Event Product/Technology” with Datakalab

Once the Special Events Advisory Board revealed the results of its deliberations, we were honored to be once again part of the finalists in the “new technology” category with Datakalab.


It is not the first time we mention and explain the solutions brought by Datakalab. Already on May 24th, 2018, VIBE Agency and Datakalab were awarded with “Best Digital Innovation” by the FACC Innovation Awards in Miami, a recognition for products and technologies that benefit the event industry.

Datakalab is reinventing marketing, in a way that will deeply change our future business relations. By associating neuroscience to high tech, it has designed tools and processes to help companies to better understand their clients and meet their needs more precisely. Since 90% of our actions and decisions are made through emotions, the use of Feel Data© and Data Crossing might become one of the most accurate and necessary marketing solution for businesses that want to increase their ROI. VIBE Agency is proud to be the official partner of Datakalab on the American market.

Save the date for the next Special Events – Gala Awards in San Diego, and don’t miss the results of this prestigious show on January 10th, 2019.
