Philadelphia planners celebrate 2011 NACE Gala Anniversary

Happy Anniversary to the 2011 NACE Gala!  It’s hard to believe that one year ago today was the party of the year that Philadelphia has ever seen!

So many talented industry professionals went into making this gala a success!  It’s not everyday that you get to attend the most fabulous party in a tent in a parking lot in the middle of January.  Well NACE Philadelphia pulled off the most creative and over the top event.  Creating a three tiered tent (1) for dining (1) lounge (1) white dance floor, not to mention a stage for the band that was suspended over the dance floor.  Thank you Ed Knight at EventQuip!

The amount of man hours and effort that went into the behind the scenes were unexplainable.  It was not just one company that did it all- it’s the twenty plus chair members that pulled some strings, let alone helped make it a success.  There was no challenge that this team couldn’t handle.
