2010 Gala Awards Backgrounder

The Gala Awards have been given by Special Events Magazine, the premier industry publication, since 1986, when the awards honored the "top 10 events of 1985." They recognize the finest work in special events worldwide.

For the 2010 Gala Awards, the magazine received nearly 300 entries in 34 categories from Australia, Bahrain, Canada, China, Denmark, Dominican Republic, England, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Spain, Thailand, Turkey and the United States of America.

Members of the Special Events Magazine Advisory Board, made up of leaders in the event profession, spent two days in October at the magazine’s offices in Pacific Palisades (Los Angeles), California, to select the 111 finalists. Nominated entries went through three rounds of judging.

The Gala Awards were given out on Jan. 28, 2011, at a black-tie gala ceremony in Phoenix at The Special Event show.
