Idea Marketing Group is excited to announce that we were a sponsor of the 17th annual NICE Awards! Idea has been a sponsor of the NICE Awards several years in a row, and is proud to carry on the tradition in 2018.

The NICE Awards is a joint awards ceremony hosted by the Chicago chapters of the National Association for Catering and Events (NACE) and the International Live Events Association (ILEA). Celebrated each year, the NICE Awards recognize and reward members of the ILEA and NACE for their accomplishments within the special events industry. Awards are handed out in the areas of event planning, entertainment, event production, catering, support services, and the like.

This year’s NICE Awards was hosted on Tuesday, April 17th at Chicago’s hottest new event venue, Theater on the Lake, which is located along North Lake Shore Drive. This year’s theme was “Carnival on the Lake,” and the best of Chicago’s event industry experts came together to bring to life a circus-inspired event with pops of reds, elegant golds, cotton candy accents, and carnival foods. The evening kicked off with a complimentary cocktail hour followed by the awards ceremony and ended with a reception featuring live music and delicious food.

With over 65 submissions for awards, this year’s event was a huge success! We were more than happy to support the celebration of the Chicago events industry and look forward to many more years of sponsorship.
