As we shared in our previous post, we were honored to receive two of the three available nominations for Best Tent Installation for the pinnacle of event awards, the Gala Award from Special Event Magazine.

Well, we’re happy to announce that earlier this evening at the Gala Awards Celebration in Tampa, Florida we WON the Gala Award! The award honors our work on one of the most challenging tent installations we produced in 2011: the tent installed for the grand opening of the National Museum of American Jewish History in Philadelphia. Affectionately called the “Miracle on Fifth Street” by Philadelphia event industry professionals, our award-winning tent installation was built overnight on one of the busiest urban streets in Philadelphia. We invite you to watch the tent as it’s installed exclusively for this prestigious world-class celebration, check it out here.

As ever, we couldn’t be prouder of our accomplishment and thank each and every member of our hard-working tent installation team for their talent, skill and efficiency.  It takes a committed team to make these momentous events happen!

A Year Later: Looking Back on the 2011 NACE Gala, An Event for Event Professionals

A year ago today, the Greater Philadelphia/South Jersey/Delaware Chapter of the National Association of Catering Executives was partying like rock stars at its annual black tie gala held right here at EventQuip. {click here to watch the video!}

NACE’s “Bring Back the Glamour” Gala was, and still is, the talk of the Greater Philadelphia event industry.  Dubbed the “event for event professionals,” by former NACE National President Daniel Briones, last year’s gala was designed to celebrate the tremendous talent found amongst the ranks of the local party industry. Not to mention, it was an event designed to give the ranks a little something to party about after managing to power through some tough economic times!
