Why enter the awards?

We’re so proud to have participated in this year’s Innovation Awards, we’re so impressed with the calibre of the entrants, speakers, and judges. It’s been a very memorable and thought-provoking symposium! Blooloop V-Expo 2021 has been highly inspiring, and very elucidating to see the future of industry events unfold before us, with such guts and skill to boot. Very, very nice work.

Applying for the Blooloop/Area 15 Innovation Awards last year was one of the best things I’ve ever done for my company, Worldbuildr. Winning the inaugural Rise Award gave us tremendous exposure to the global attractions industry, driving tremendous new traffic to our website and instantly leveling up the credibility and perceived legitimacy of our revolutionary software. As a result of this award, we’ve been able to develop a closer relationship with the folks at Area 15, and are now able to pursue projects of a larger size and scope.
