The leaders in the BC event industry gathered last night at Rocky Mountaineer Station in Vancouver for a spectacular party and awards ceremony celebrating the best events of 2010. CLICK HERE TO JUMP TO THE WINNERS
It was a fabulous soiree under the Morrocan style tents supplied by Vancouver's top tenting company Rental Network. The evening featured International DJ to the Stars Alan Smithson, founder of the Emulator who showcased this new state of the art touch screen system, Steamworks & Rogue Cafe who kept the crowd grazing all night at delicious gourmet stations and an eclectic mix of interactive entertainment had guests engaged throughout the event. Special performances by Vancouver Theatre Sports, Travis Bernhardt and Flying Not Falling entertained while Alan spun from centre stage on his backlit dj booth which resembled the holodeck from the Starship Enterprise. The effects were very cool!
Among the industry giants out to celebrate the event; Martin Van Keken of MVKA Productions, David Clark, BC Event Management, Paul Runnels, BrandLive, Jonathan Buchwold, Prime, John Donnelly, John Donnelly & Associates, Tom Stulberg, Fireworks and many other Canadian Event Industry leaders from Destination Planners, Cantrav, PRP and many more.
The awards event followed the CSEME2010 conference at Rocky Mountaineer Station where just over 750 planners
turned out during the day to check out the latest and greatest products and services available for their next events.
Tremendous thanks goes out to the many sponsors and supporters who helped make the event a huge success.
