ALSD Spotlight – Awards Showcase for the Premium Seating and Venue Marketplace
ALSD Spotlight continues to highlight great accomplishments in the venue industry, with some favorite categories returning for 2020 as well as new and evolved categories to keep up with the every-growing landscape. Get ready to show off your venue accomplishments at our conference awards ceremony, on our social channels, and on ALSD.com.
This industry awards show judges entries based on descriptions and photos submitted by category, and is a great way to show off what you’ve done and see others' best practices and projects. And remember, every relevant entrant is featured on our website and social media, whether you win or not!
If you entered a project for Spotlight 2019 and did not win a category, feel free to re-enter the same project. And even if your project did win an award last year, you may also enter any category aside from the one you won the previous year.
The top highlights, as determined by a panel of select judges, will be given the most premium treatment in our publications and will be announced at the 2020 ALSD Conference and Tradeshow and Design & Build Forum.
We have selected the following categories for our judges to consider. No preferential treatment will be given to new, renovated, or existing venue spaces. All are welcome! Renderings are allowed to be included, but your entry may not contain renderings only.
