Why the AEC Community Loves to Attend the Award of Excellence Gala

Drinks and networking at ENR's Award of ExcellenceThere are many reasons to attend the Award of Excellence Gala – it’s not just about networking, although it has been described as a “who’s who” in the industry where you are certain to see longtime colleagues and old friends, while also meeting up-and-comers, and networking with public officials and other AEC VIPs.

This event is also about collaboration and being inspired by the technical excellence showcased from the award-winning firms. It’s a place for you to bring your own firm’s talent and let them create relationships that can turn into future projects or joint-ventures.

It’s also a place to relax with colleagues and strengthen connections with ENR editors from all over the U.S.

Whether you choose to dress in formal “black tie,” or would be more comfortable in less formal attire, you’re guaranteed to have a memorable evening in a beautiful setting with good food and great company. This year, ENR is celebrating its 150th anniversary, so 2024 is sure to be an exceptional experience!
