NACE gala in Philadelphia/Philadelphia Wedding Planner

Karen Pecora Events specializes in weddings in Philadelphia and events on the main line and the surrounding areas.  This year we are excited to chair the most exciting black tie gala that will be hosted in 2011… Bring back the glamour gala hosted by NACE philadelphia, South Jersey and Deleware

Last week when we arrived at EventQuip… This is what we saw.  The NACE Gala tent was being set in place!  My twitter post that day was something like… “My heart skipped a eat when I saw the massive tent structure for the NACE gala”…  This was sure to be the most creative event in Philadelphia in 2011.

Big Ric Rising will perform from a stage that is suspended in midair.

This three level tent will feature:  traditional guest seating for the seated dinner created, prepared and served by Starr Events, a lounge and bar area provided by AFR Event Furnishings and an inlaid dance floor to dance the night away.

The tent is massive NACE is expecting 200 guests that evening.

With almost 20 people on this committee it has been a real pleasure to work with such industry professionals!

Renee Grande, Events by Monroe, Brian Kappra from Evantine Design, Ed Knight the host venue, EventQuip,  Scott Barnes from Starr Events, Karen Pecora together with so many other industry professionals –  all working together to bring the details alive.

Gene Blum of Drexelbrook has had a key part in all of this!!  Gene alone has taken care of ALL bar donations for the evening!  Jim Cohn of Mid Atlantic Events Magazine has been a life time supporter of the NACE gala.

It has consumed our office for the past few months but soon we will…

See you on the dancefloor!
