  • A short pause to smile and pose! Starting from the entrance, guests will have the chance to network with other guests. Get ready to be amazed by a piano performance as part of a networking opportunity.
  • The Grand Finale Stage! The moment we are all waiting for when we find out the global finalists and winners of the night, along with insightful interviews, funny host sketches, and a lot of dance at the GSA’s nightclub.
  • An Excellent Delight of Food and Entertainment! The real show starts after being immersed in the three different entertainment acts and breathtaking acrobatic performances. All of this happens while our guests are enjoying a delicious 3-course menu enriched with wine. We finish the night dancing our shoes off with the sound of familiar hits of our DJ.


The Global Grand Finale 2021 was held right in the heart of Copenhagen, where we found one of the most emblematic places of the city, the Circus Building (Cirkusbygningen).

The oldest of its kind in Europe, the Circus building has been a Danish cultural icon since 1886. In this magical setting, we celebrated an award show mixed with the essence of a traditional circus show. Our Team has set up a thorough guide for our international guests, including but not limited to food, places and more!

A Green theme, for A Greener Future

This season’s focus is on the relevance of green innovation and how to push society in a greener direction, thus, contributing to Denmark’s Green Future and the rest of the world’s green agenda.
