After writing…and writing…and writing…efforts have paid off! Congrats to all of the Gala Awards finalists including Nico Cervantes. This guy is the next big thing. Really. Talent, Attitude. Sweet. Funny. He’s got “it”. Nominated for “Starry Night” for Best Fundraiser, it is his first submission.
Room Service, an AFR Event Furnishings Company, was selected as finalist for Best Achievement in Event Rental Support for “Dinner en Rouge”, a product launch for Grand Marnier during the 2010 South Beach Wine & Food Festival. This was their first nomination as well!
SHOWORKS Inc. won a nomination for Best Decor: Total Decor Budget $50K to $150K for Fusion: The Power of Purple, an incredible dual product launch that focused on energy, power and the melding of two difficult colors.
Among the hundred and hundreds (maybe more) of spectacular entries and all the talented companies in the industry, these three are among the “chosen” few.
And what does it take? Well, sure talent, vision, brilliance and budget never hurt, but perserverence and planning.
But wait, there’s more: As all the awards seem to come up at teh same time, Event Solutions’ Spotlight Awards have yet to go public with its finalist’s list, but among the chosen few are:
Limelight Photography for Event Supplier of the Year
Dan Cohen from Uplyte for Event Supplier of the Year
Stefanie Berry of SHOWORKS for Creative Director
Donald Braun of donald braun events LLC for Creative Director
Shari Lynn Rothstein-Kramer (hey, that’s me!) of SLK Creative for Marketing Professional of the Year!
