The 2020 NICE Awards are going virtual!

For the past 18 years, members of Chicago’s event industry have come together to celebrate the best of the best at the annual NICE Awards. This year’s celebration is no exception, aside from being together virtually! 

The NICE Awards will be held online to ensure the safety of our attendees and our industry. 

Now you can enjoy the NICE Awards in the comfort of your own home! Or gather in small watch groups in accordance with current city and state guidelines. Pop a bottle of bubbly or mix up a batch of specialty mocktails and get the party started!

Virtual Tickets

The 2020 NICE Awards will be a night to remember. The theme this year is Fashionably NICE. Put on that evening gown or don that tux and join us from your living room or group viewing party!
