Recently the Chicago chapters of NACE and ISES joined together to host the 15th annual N.I.C.E. Awards at the fabulous 19 East. The N.I.C.E. Awards were established to recognize Chicago area members of NACE (National Association for Catering and Events) and ISES (International Special Events Society) for their accomplishments within the special events industry. The joint awards ceremony celebrates achievements in the areas of event planning, catering, entertainment, creative and support services. At this year’s award ceremony MDM Entertainment was honored to win the award for Best Theme Decor for a Corporate Event.

NICE Award for Best Theme Decor for a Corporate Event

When you get the best event companies and event professionals in Chicago working together on an event you know it’s going to be awesome. Once again, the N.I.C.E. Awards planning committee brought their “A”  game and delivered a phenomenal evening. This year’s theme was “The Wizard of Oz” and had everything you would expect from the Emerald City to Dorthy and the Tin Man.

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the outstanding hors d’oeuvres and food stations provided by one of our absolute favorite caterers, Food For Thought. Everything was absolutely delicious!

The evening’s nominees and award winners were a veritable who’s-who of the Chicago special event industry and MDM Entertainment was truly honored to be included among such outstanding Chicago special event companies.

Congratulations to all of the nominees!
