1. Great new format
2. ISES yearly INTERNATIONAL Event – Reinvented!
Best Corporate or Association Event (budget over $150,000)
Did your (Corporate or Association) event rock from top to bottom, from the pre-event engagement to post-event follow up and everything in between? If the answer is a resounding ‘YES!’, tell us how you made it happen.
Best Corporate or Association Event (budget under $150,000)
It’s one thing to create a rockin’ event, but it’s quite another to do it on a budget. Let us know if you think you did the best with less.
Best Room Design / Event Décor / Set Design (budget over $50,000)
Sure, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But it’s also in the eye of the event designer. Show us how your vision – and visuals – helped take an event to the next level.
Best Room Design / Event Décor / Set Design (budget under $50,000)
Your design helped take all aspects of an event to the next level, except for the budget. We want to know how you worked your magic.
Best Technical Support
Tenting, audio-visual, staging, etc. You guys may be behind the scenes but without your help there wouldn’t be a scene in the first place. If your technical achievements were key to an event’s success let us hear about it.
Best Non-Profit Event
It’s no secret that events are the lifeline of non-profits. So if your organization (or your client’s) is alive and well thanks to a first-class event, we want details.
Best use of Graphic Design
Your art may be print or digital (or both), but if your canvas includes invitations, presentations and signage of all kind this is the category for you.
Best Social Event or Wedding
Everyone loves a good party, and you know how to throw one. Birthdays, anniversaries, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs and weddings, let us know if there was one that took the cake.
Best Tabletop Design
Were your centerpieces the center of attention? Did your tabletops top the lists of fun, fresh and unique? If you designed a table that stood above the rest, let us know.
Best Photography or Videography
Anyone who says a picture is worth a thousand words has never seen your work. Yours are worth at least two thousand. If your photography OR videography is the crème de la crème, we want to see it.
Best New Product
Have you created a new product that event professionals need to know about, or already can’t live without? A fun rental item? Cool new software? Cutting edge technology? A combination of all three or maybe something else entirely? This is a category for event professional by trade and entrepreneurs at heart.
Best Sustainable Event
New this year: the ‘Green Apple Award’. Submissions will be judged on innovation and creativity in event design in planning a green event, with special attention focused on overall best practices incorporated to reduce events’ environmental impact.

On January 8th ISES NY Metro met at Chelsea Piers – Sunset Terrace to talk STRESS! And how to learn to DEAL with it!
We were privileged to hear from a panel of professionals that all deal with STRESS from different angles, YOGA teacher deluxe, Elena Brower, owner of VIRAYOGA; NUTRITIONIST, Samantha Rigoli from the Healthy to the Core; and PSYCOLOGIST, Doctor Karen, Karen Binder-Brynes Ph.D! ISES NY Metro’s own president Paul Neuman from Neuman’s Kitchen moderated the panel!

Jessica Dillon – @JADillon22 – read the live tweets from the event below!
• Feel the wholeness of your experiences – even embarrassment, who or what you can’t forgive. Meditate for 5 minutes/day
• Breathing is a gift. More oxygen creates an inhospitable environment for disease
• “You take care of who you are in that moment and be an example, everyone will fall into place beautifully”
• Clarity, directionality, elegance, purpose comes from all of us meditating for five minutes each day. We all impact each other
• You don’t have to go to the mountaintop to meditate. Take five minutes a day
• Healthy fats (avocados, nuts) sustain you through a long event. Start off with a good breakfast – high fat and fiber filled foods
• “It takes time, money, thought, prep – it’s an investment to not grab fast food. Fast food is not an option for me”
• Don’t obsess about numbers as long as you’re getting an appropriate balance throughout the day
• We become over-adrenalized when we are stressed. Over-adrenaline will always overtake our ability to think
• Asking for help is so therapeutic and helpful. Go to someone you trust and ask. Acknowledging you’re overwhelmed is a relief
• “Walking away from a situation even for a second if you can is so important”
• Recognize how you react to stress and get to know yourself so you know what to do to react. You’ve got to breatheComments ( 1 )
