Event Logistics:

Do honorees attend the regional award events for free?

No, honorees need to be included in your purchase. Please contract Andre Sutton at for more information.

If I cannot attend as an honoree, when will I get my award?

If you are unable to attend the ceremony, you can send someone in your place to accept on your behalf but you must notify us in advance. Please contact Katie Candiotti at Should you wish to have your award shipped to you there will be a charge, contact Katie for details.

Can I request to sit with someone if I am attending alone?

Yes, but this depends on the request. If you request a firm and that firm has purchased their own table, their representative has to be notified of your request to make a final decision. If you have asked to sit with another guest coming alone or in a small group, this request can be met more easily but not guaranteed.

What is the timing of the event? The invitation doesn’t tell me enough.

Guests will for cocktail hour starting at 6:00 pm. We will begin seating at 7:00 pm and the program will start promptly between 7:10 pm and 7:15 pm. There is an official networking dinner break later in the evening. The awards program will resume again after the networking dinner break. We are unable to share the order of the award presentations.

Will there be photos from the event accessible after the event?

Yes, we will post them on our Facebook and on the event website within 10 days of the event.
