I’ve photographed this event for the past several years and it’s always a hoot. It is completely sponsored by events industry vendors and they all bring their A-game to show off what they can do. This year, the event was at Temple Nightclub in San Francisco and had an 80’s theme. The industry association that throws the event is the International Live Events Association (ILEA).
We have been a member of the International Live Events Association (ILEA) for several years. They are an events industry association that brings together event professionals from all over the world to facilitate collaboration and communication. It is a fantastic group to be part of and its filled with wonderful people.
Each year, ILEA throws a huge party in San Francisco for its members and other industry professionals. This is an amazing event – not only because it is spectacular to experience – but also because it is completely sponsored by in-kind donations from all of the event vendors.
I was the photography chair on the gala planning committee this year and also photographed the event with several other photographers and videographers. Once again, this was an incredible event and I’m so grateful to all those who made it possible.
To give you a taste of what it was like, here are a few of my images from the event.
Below, you can see the Step and Repeat photo booth I setup for the event.
Finally, here are some of the guests having a great time. That’s me with Colson and Christine in the selfie 🙂
