Swearing In of the 2017-2018 ILEA Board & Giving Back in the Industry

We gathered at The Guesthouse Hotel located in Andersonville.  This boutique hotel was the perfect location to host our group.  We started the evening in their beautiful lobby and ended the night on the spectacular rooftop.

 Feast & Imbibe

Feast & Imbibe impressed our guests with their culinary creations and service.  Halls Rental provided all the essentials – plates, glasses, and a beautiful custom bar, while BBJ Linens provided the final touches, to complete the event.


Our first guest speaker was Rick Turner from Extraordinary Events, who spoke about the SEARCH Foundation, an organization dedicated to helping professionals in need in the events industry.  Beth Bernstein of SQN Events, shared her experience of involvement with the Birthday Party Project, a non-profit organization dedicated to hostingmonthly birthday parties at homeless and transitional living facilities across the country. For information on how to help with both organizations, click on the links above.

AV Chicago took great care to make sure all the technical needs for our speakers went flawlessly!  Finally, TWA Photography documented the entire event with the gorgeous photos you see here.
