Let's talk about AV and the event industry as a whole.

Active and the 29th Annual Allie Awards

​- Submitted by Brad Gibson, Director of Marketing and Business Development for Active Production and Design.

On March 10th, 2019, Atlanta's finest event industry professionals gathered at the Hotel at Avalon for the 29th Annual Allie Awards! The Allie Awards began in 1991 and were named such because it was a night of "allied" event professionals working together to celebrate their achievements. Active had the distinct pleasure to once again sponsor the Allies with audiovisual, production, and creative service support. Working alongside the hotel's audiovisual vendor, Active made the exquisite décor come alive with textured gobos, ambient lighting, table lighting, and a multitude of production professionals to ensure the evening ran smoothly.

Active's Director of Marketing (and author of this blog, hi!) Brad Gibson was this year's Production Chair and worked alongside other stellar volunteers to turn out a beautiful affair. The Production Committee was a fantastic group of dedicated professionals who, like every other volunteer, wanted to see a flawless event and put in many long hours to execute what is being called one of the best Allie Awards to date. As Production Chair the role was to oversee all things production including the audiovisual design, entertainment, and run of show. It truly takes a village to maintain an event of this magnitude, so putting key people in the right roles was paramount. The Production Committee was fortunate to have an outstanding Technical Director who worked closely with the hotel audiovisual vendor and Active to put together a seamless audiovisual design. The Production Committee also worked closely with the Décor Chair to make certain that all production elements were in line with the décor, stage design, and delightful centerpieces.

With the planning complete, the night was upon Georgia's top event professionals who dressed to nines and brought a palpable energy to the Hotel at Avalon. Active was nominated for several awards and took home 3: Most Unique Venue, for our 25th Anniversary RAVE!, Best Audiovisual Design for the PRIDE kickoff party at the Georgia Aquarium, and Best Team Effort Wedding for "Under the Buckhead Sun" with TOAST Events. The evening progressed nicely with a delicious meal, libations a-plenty, and catching up with countless industry clients and colleagues!

It was truly a night to celebrate and Active had an amazing time sponsoring and partying with our event industry colleagues. We can't wait to see what the future Allies have in store! For a complete list of sponsors, winners, photos, and more information visit THE ALLIE AWARDS WEBSITE!
