“And the winner is…” echoes through the packed ballroom at The Palace at Somerset Park. Only twelve names will be called for a 2017 ILEA NJ North Award and the ILEA members hold their breath in excitement to hear their name called for this prestigious award. The name is revealed and everyone applauses as they share this moment of celebration for each other's excellences in the event industry. You could sense how close the ILEA NJ North community is and how much they love to see others succeed. We’d like to share with our community the businesses and companies that won an award that night. The ILEA NJ North community would like to thank you for all your hard work and recognize you one more time.

See our photos below and relive the magical night that was, the 2017 North NJ Awards Gala.
Your heart was racing, and your eyes widen with excitement the moment you walked through the front doors. It felt like you walked into the imaginary world of Willy Wonka.
ILEA NJ North honored Anthony Gerardi, President of Partners in Sound Entertainment, for all the hard work and dedication he has given to the events industry and ILEA.
We had the one, the only Steve Kemble back to guest EMCEE our Gala again! As Willy Wonka, he showered everyone with glitter, smiles and awards!
...And kisses too
Did you think we forgot about the sweets? We dare you to try and not eat your screen!
We’d like to thank all our sponsors for the amazing job they did! We had oracle readings, stilt walkers, human statues, magic tricks, touch-screen photo booth, and the best desserts, photographers and designers to make this event come to life! Here are those amazing people who made this event spectacular!
