Best Corporate or Association Event (budget over $150,000)

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.
