On May 18, 2023, the Vancouver ILEA Gala Event Awards announced that “With Love From Paris” was nominated in two categories, as well as Founder & CEO was nominated for Event Professional of the Year.
> Best Event Decor/Design $50K – $150K
This event was a true labor of love, as we have personally been to Paris and walked the streets amongst these monuments. Creating this environment for our client’s guests who had been pent up for two years, was one of our career highlights of the past 35 years.
> Best Event Produced for a Corporation
Planning an event for guests with a pent-up need to travel was a joy to produce. Setting the event in the heart of Paris was a fabulous idea, as it gave people the opportunity to stroll through the streets of Paris and image that they were really there. The falling snow in the park was definitely a highlight.
> Event Professional of the Year – Sharon Bonner
“Being an event producer for the last 35 years has been a wonderful life and one that I will always treasure. I love this industry passionately and I love the people in it just as much. Inspiring young event professionals to follow their event dreams is a passion of mine“.
The ILEA Vancouver Awards Gala is scheduled to be held at Stanley Park Pavilion on Thursday, May 25, 2023, in Vancouver, BC.
