4. Best Technical Support
Tenting, audio-visual, staging, etc. You guys may be behind the scenes but without your help there wouldn’t be a scene in the first place. If your technical achievements were key to an event’s success let us hear about it.

Were your centerpieces the center of attention? Did your tabletops top the lists of fun, fresh and unique? If you designed a table that stood above the rest, let us know.
  9. Best Venue

Have you launched a new space that’s taken the city by storm? Renovated or rebranded an older one? Or maybe your venue is simply a tried and true New York classic. If it’s any of the above tell us what makes your space the hottest ticket in town.
10. Best Photography or Videography
