2020 EEA Gala Celebration of Engineering Excellence Postponed Until Fall

CEC has postponed the 2020 Engineering Excellence Awards Gala, originally scheduled for April 28th at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, D.C., until fall, on a date and location still to be determined.

The Council has been informed by the Marriott Wardman Park—the original 2020 Annual Convention and Gala site—that both events can no longer occur at their hotel on the previously scheduled dates. We are now assessing options on moving forward on both events including a virtual Annual Convention and postponing the Gala until fall.

More details on these rescheduled events will soon be forthcoming. For continuous updates click here to go to the Last Word Blog.

Known industrywide as the “Academy Awards of the Engineering Industry” the 2020 EEA Gala promises to once again be the world’s most elegant and electrifying celebration of engineering excellence as always.

As the Council considers new dates and locations, we will keep any participant seats and sponsorships purchased intact for the rescheduled event. For questions about registration or refunds for the future event, to 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.

All comments to blog posts will be moderated by ACEC staff.
