It was a night to shine at The Reserve in Birmingham as honorees and guests from around the state gathered for the 2018 Event Professional Industry Class (EPIC) Awards. The program recognized the best in the industry and highlighted the previous year of events.

The Greater Detroit chapter of the National Association for Catering and Events (NACE), the Detroit Chapter of International Live Events Association (ILEA), and the Association of Bridal Consultants (ABC) jointly host the annual gala. A committee of volunteers from each group runs the celebration. 

NACE and ILEA members from other state chapters anonymously judge the award entries. Judging was done blindly with no identifying individual or company information shared with the judges.

Event sponsors were Display Group, Elysium Experience, Parsonage, Fred Ferris Photography, LePenn Designs, TapSnap Detroit, Chez Chloé, Event Source, Lyndsey’s Linen, Creative Specialties and Timothy Scott Films.

The New York and New Jersey chapters of the National Association for Catering & Events (NACE), along with the Banquet Event Strategic Task Force (BEST Task Force), held an in-person gathering in August, their first since the start of the pandemic.

 

Unprecedented times call for strategic measures. With so many planners wondering how best to plan for the event-specific challenges posed by COVID- 19, industry leaders and top associations have stepped up to offer a road map with trainings on everything from cleaning protocols to new contract clauses.
