On Friday, August 17, 2018 at the Wings Over The Rockies Air & Space Museum the International Live Events Association (ILEA) held its Annual Esprit Awards Gala.
Established in 1995, the ILEA Esprit Awards have become a symbol of industry excellence and evolved into one of the most respected awards competitions in the industry. The awards competition was conceptualized as a means to increase industry awareness, elevate professionalism, and inspire growth in an emerging profession. Today, the Esprit Awards honour ILEA members’ best, most creative and innovative contributions to the industry. For more, visit http://www.ileahub.com
In August, Sharon Bonner, CEO & Founder of Bright Ideas Events traveled to Denver, Colorodo as a three time finalist for the ILEA LIVE Esprit Awards. The tension and anticipation built all week as attendees and fellow nominees, from all over Europe, The Middle East, Africa, Asia and North America, participated in several days of conferences, seminars and networking. Finally, on August 18th, the big night arrived. Sharon, all nerves and excitement, got to walk across the stage not once, but twice, as A Christmas Carol Celebration beat events from all over the world to win both Best Event Design / Decor and Best Corporate Event! Thank you to all the many people who worked on this event with us. It was a pleasure to work with such professionals. We actually built a village together!
