2020 EEA Gala Celebration of Engineering Excellence Postponed Until Fall

ACEC has postponed the 2020 Engineering Excellence Awards Gala, originally scheduled for April 28th at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, D.C., The gala has been rescheduled for November 21, 2020 to be held at the Grand Hyatt in Washington, DC. Please save this date on your calendar. Please note: given the uncertainty presented by COVID-19, should it be necessary, the gala may be moved to a virtual event on a date to be determined.

As we move closer to the rescheduled date, we will keep intact any participant seats and sponsorships already purchased. For questions about registration or refunds for the future event, contact Daisy Nappier.

The 2020 Gala will still honor a record 203 entries representing engineering excellence from throughout the nation and the world. Judging for the awards program took place in February and was conducted by a national 35-member panel of built environment leaders, along with experts from government, the media and academia. Award criteria focused on uniqueness and originality, technical innovation, social and economic value, and generating excitement for the engineering profession.

Recognition of all award winners, including the top winners—20 Honor Awards, 16 Grand Awards and the prestigious “Grand Conceptor Award” for the year’s most outstanding overall engineering achievement, will again be a night to remember.
