Summary
PressDoc, the new format for press releases optimized for the social web, and The Next Web open a digital press room for the European edition of the TNW Startup Awards tour. Nominees and partners from all 12 local awards can now publish their most important news around the event in one central place. http://startupawards.pressdoc.com/

The TNW Startup Awards tour is an online competition designed to acknowledge the hottest startups and investors in 12 European countries. The competition is followed by meetups with members of the TNW team in some of Europe's most relevant tech hubs. The tour includes: Berlin, London, Dublin, Paris, Barcelona, Bucharest, Warsaw, Amsterdam, Kiev, Moscow, Istanbul and Copenhagen.

The awards are offered in 7 categories for each of the 12 countries. For every category there are 5 nominations. With such figures in mind, manually coordinating all press releases from all nominees in one place can be a difficult and time consuming task for any PR team.

The Startup Awards Digital Press Room allows nominees and event partners to publish press releases in one central place, without the need for them to go through the TNW PR team. Easy for event organisers, easy for event participants. 

"Not all hot startups are build in Silicon Valley, and we're also seeing in Europe very talented entrepreneurs, with great ideas. Startups like these deserve to be discovered by the rest of the world. Because we have so many impressive startups and only 7 awards, we wanted to give all nominees a chance to receive the PR attention startups need. Thus, we are inviting them to publish in the Startup Awards digital press room specially designated for them," says Patrick de Laive, co-founder of The Next Web.

About the Digital Press Room

The digital press room is specially designed for events and trade shows by PressDoc and based on its OpenPressRoom technology. A single point of entry for journalists and bloggers attending an event. All event related news of partners, exhibitors and sponsors can be found here, as it happens. 

The exhibitors, sponsors and event partners can create a free PressDoc account. From this account they can manage their own press releases and publish in the OpenPressRoom. The event organizers only need to setup the OpenPressRoom and invite users to publish.
