The Special Event 2019 Gala Award Winners

The Special Event 2019 Gala Award Winners

At Rayce PR and Marketing, The Special Event is one of our favorite weeks of the year. Thousands of event industry professionals and creatives gather from all across the globe for four consecutive days of learning, fellowshipping, networking, and of course, a little partying! Rayce PR and Marketing had the honor of being one of the many incredible sponsors, and we promoted the entire event from start to finish through strategic social media marketing. While we loved every second of the week, we were particularly fond of the Gala Awards, which were held on Thursday, January 10th on the closing night of the event. We all gathered as hundreds of talented, hard-working artists and professionals were honored as nominees, including several Rayce PR Clients.

Among the spectacular talent, a select few were chosen as winners in each category, and we were thrilled to see them claim their title in their moment to shine! Below, we have listed the winners of each category for you to see. You can find the original comprehensive list on The Special Event Website! Congratulations to the winners!
