We are thrilled to report that Brass Tacks Events has been honored with three Esprit Award nominations. A Bat Mitzvah that we designed and produced was nominated in two categories: Best Social Event and Best Team Effort. These nominations come on the heels of wins in the same categories at the Texas Star Awards for this same Bat Mitzvah. As the name indicates, the Texas Star Awards represent the best events within the state of Texas, whereas the Esprit Awards are representative of the best events from all over the world. The third Esprit Award nomination was in the category of Best Industry Contribution for a presentation on the topic of ethics that Kevin Molesworth, CSEP first shared at The Special Event conference last year and in several cities across the US and Canada. The winners will be announced at the Esprit Awards Gala on Saturday, August 12th.
