The annual Gala Award is widely regarded as "The Oscar" of the special events industry, and is awarded for excellence in special event design, production and management. The Gala Awards are first nominated by editors of Special Events Magazine and later judged by a panel of industry peers. The magazine receives hundreds of entries in over 30 categories. Only three companies are nominated in each category and generally, only one company can win in that category. The awards represent the highest honor in the special events industry.
