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.

For its September 2019 meeting, the National Association for Catering and Events (NACE) Philadelphia Chapter—which serves industry professionals in the Greater Philadelphia, South Jersey and Delaware region—thought it would try something different. Instead of focusing on the visual presentation of food, organizers took away the sense of sight entirely, outfitting diners with a blindfold at dinner.
 

 

Lansing isn't just the capital of Michigan, but it’s also the central hub for the entire state—literally; it’s located within 90 minutes of 90 percent of the state’s population, making it both eventful and accessible for groups located throughout the state.
