The industry came together at The Foundry by Herban Feast on Oct. 19, 2017, for our Best of 2017 readers’ choice awards. In addition to great music and food, beer tastings, and candid photo booth snapshots, Northwest Meetings + Events raised approximately $900 for the SEARCH Foundation through a silent auction. The evening was capped off with our awards ceremony presided over by emcee Ron Hippe. Special thanks to event sponsors Butler Seattle, Ketchikan Visitors Bureau and Tulalip Resort Casino for their support, as well as event partners 321 Foto, Alan Alabastro Photography, Blue Danube Productions, CORT Party Rental, Dianne’s Delights, Fena Flowers, Fred Northrup Jr. Fundraising Auctioneer, Herban Feast, Pyramid Brewing Co., Wave Link Music Inc. and Wilridge Winery.
