2010 Allie Awards


The 20th Annual Allie Awards were held this past Sunday night at the new Loews Hotel in Midtown Atlanta. The Allie Awards is Atlanta's premier awards ceremony recognizing and honoring outstanding examples of quality and creativity in Atlanta’s event industry. The awards demonstrate how working together for a common good can promote excellence in event design, planning and production. This year was a special birthday celebration dedicated to the 20th year of the Allie Awards Gala.

A Legendary Event took home the following awards:

Best Plated Menu for DIFFA’s Dining by Design. DIFFA: Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS is one of the country’s largest supporters of direct care for people living with HIV/AIDS and preventive education for those at risk. As the event’s caterer, we were challenged to create and serve a menu for 400 seated guests that would be memorable and innovative.
Best Tabletop Design for DIFFA’s Dining by Design. Each year, a group of the nation’s top designers are invited to create a unique table design to help raise funds for DIFFA. ALE created a table titled “Feast in the Forest” where guests dined amidst a magical forest surrounded by lush greenery, moss and mushrooms.
Best Themed Event Décor for a wedding. ALE featured a bride’s love of nature with a Nature-Inspired Nuptials theme at Atlanta’s Temple and the Buckhead Grand Hyatt Hotel. The décor featured a chuppah completely garlanded with foliage; a lush canopy of magnolia leaves suspended above the dance floor; and a myriad of other “green” features.
Best Use of Rentals for the BMW Event “International Media Launch.” Our venue partner Tents Unlimited was also honored with an Allie for this event; highlighting the custom tent they created to house the lounge and ballroom.

President and Owner Tony Conway remarked, “We are so grateful and honored to receive all of these fabulous awards.” Congratulations to our fellow Allie Award Winners!!
