NACE Houston Presents: A Little Party Never Killed Nobody, Awards Gala 2024

You're invited to a night celebrating the Houston's robust Event Industry, where colleagues and fellow vendors have the opportunity to show off their talents in person at this always-glamorous event, and through the Award portion of the evening where YOU have the opportunity to win "BEST OF" in the numerous available categories.

You've asked, and we listened: Our annual Awards Gala has now been moved to September! In an effort to allow you more time (during the generally slower summer months) to write and submit your exceptional events to our local Awards.


Each year, we review and develop the Event Submission Criteria to reflect the National Award criteria from the NACE One Awards, and have made some adjustments to this year's criteria for submission.

Please follow this link to view all available Awards Categories, Criteria and how to submit.


This year's theme is A Little Party Never Killed Nobody! A flashback to one of the most glamorous decades, the Roaring 20s! You'll see fur, sequins, pearls, and glimmering gold in this Black Tie affair.

Start the night by taking our "Secret" elevator to the Speakeasy for Cocktail Hour... psst, you MUST know the password to enter!

Then, be prepared to cheer and celebrate the wins during our Award Presentation and Dinner portion of the evening.

Bring your dancing shoes because the night won't end there... get ready to be delighted by the entertainment during our After Party!
