2022 ILEA Esprit Awards

The ILEA Esprit Awards recognize excellence in live events. The awards competition increases industry awareness, elevates professionalism, and inspires growth within the live events industry. This year, the ILEA Esprit Awards honors industry professional’s most creative and innovative industry contributions across 28 categories and subcategories.

After another challenging year for our industry, this year you may notice a change as we announce the nominees. As a reminder all nominees had to secure a minimum eligibility score points to be eligible as a nominee and not be disqualified based on rule parameters. To help maintain the aura of suspense and increase the excitement, all categories will be announced together. The reveal of the categories/subcategories, the nominees within and then the recipient will be revealed at the ILEA Esprit Awards Celebration.

The recipients were announced at the 2022 ILEA Virtual Awards Celebration on Friday, August 19.
