The Chicago Chapters of the National Association of Catering and Events (NACE) and the International Live Events Association (ILEA) invite you to be part of the 19th Annual N.I.C.E. Awards Celebration on Tuesday, April 7th, 2020 at The Old Post Office. This exciting event is attended by the industry’s premier event planners, caterers, decorators, florists, production companies, DMC’s, event site managers and many more! 

The 2020 NICE Awards will be a night to remember.  The theme this year is Fashionably NICE. During cocktail hour, explore the countless Silent Auction options, which will benefit NACE, ILEA, and the SEARCH Foundation, the only non-profit that helps event professionals in crisis. Then travel to the Historic Lobby for a Fashionista’s Dinner during the awards program, hosted by Kate Patay, CPCE and Chairwoman of the SEARCH Foundation. The evening will progress into an after party and a chance to mix, mingle, and break it down on the dance floor with some of Chicago's finest.
