Tuscany Ballroom at the Ritz-Carlton
Orlando, FL

The Soderstrom Awards Dinner has long served to offer recognition for industry leaders and bring together graphic communications industry leaders from all corners of the industry-at-large. Be sure to register for the 2016 Soderstrom Awards Dinner. This year, the event will be held the evening before the start of Graph Expo 2016 at the Tuscany Ballroom in the Orlando Ritz-Carlton.

Companies that wish to support the event or honor one of the Soderstrom Society inductees may do so with a table sponsorship. Reserving a table at the Soderstrom Dinner offers companies the perfect opportunity to bring together their key executives and important customers or prospects in a wonderful setting. Signage on the reserved tables also provides well-deserved recognition of a company’s support of our industry at one of its signature events.

A limited number of reserved table sponsorships are available. A reserved table sponsorship for a table of 10 for the evening is offered at $5,500; a half-table of five is $3,000. Sponsorship inquiries should be directed to Marty Maloney of Broadford & Maloney Inc. at (203) 912-0804 or m.maloney@bmcorp.com.

Individual tickets to the 2016 Soderstrom Awards Dinner will be available starting on Aug. 1.
