Best Design Gallery for bridal extravaganza

The Allie Awards were created 26 years ago to recognize local Atlanta event companies performing at a global level of excellence in the areas of design, production and planning. The “Allies” are much more than peer recognition. They showcase the pinnacle of professionalism and creativity in the event industry, as well as educate and inspire the industry’s most talented individuals to continuously raise the bar.

In 1988, when Tim Lundy, CSEP, first envisioned the Allie Awards, he knew the city of Atlanta was fast becoming one of the leaders in the event industry, destined to compete on national and global levels. Today, his dream is a reality, and the Southeast comes together as one on a very special night to celebrate its best-in-class, and foster the dreams of tomorrow’s rising stars.
