The results of the prestigious international competition Global Eventex Awards have been summed up. The panel of judges awarded the Scarlet Sails show with gold in 4 nominations: "Art Event", "Celebration Event", "Cultural Event" and "Music Event". Also, the St. Petersburg festival won silver in the Live Streaming Event category.
It must be noted that in 2020 the show was prepared in record time. So, it took a little less than a month to create a script, conduct rehearsals, and install decorations and pontoons for fireworks installations, whereas in previous years the organizers spent almost twelve months on preparation. We may add that last year the Scarlet Sails festival was held online due to the restrictive measures caused by the coronavirus infection COVID-19. The show was broadcast on the official city tourist portal Visit Petersburg; it was watched live by users in 30 countries of the world.
The Scarlet Sails festival is a memorable annual event that is held every summer. According to statistics, more than 1 million people from different cities of Russia and the world attended the colorful show with a sailing ship in the water area of the Neva, fireworks and a concert.
