SMPS New York Liberty Ball 2018

Help SMPS New York honor excellence in marketing communications and professional achievements at the Annual Meeting and Liberty Ball! This unforgettable evening will celebrate the outstanding accomplishments of the AEC industry’s bold, brilliant, and brave in a historic setting – the New York City Fire Museum.


We’ve decided to play with fire this year by freeing you from the chains of a seated dinner! We are getting rid of the tables and increasing the time spent networking with top industry professionals. After the extended networking dinner, we will move into a separate space to watch a short awards show packed with new, interactive twists and turns.

For the awards presentation, we are excited to welcome Brent Robertson, our dynamic Master of Ceremonies. Also new this year are two new professional achievement awards – Humanitarian of the Year and Marketing Hero of the Year. Join us as we honor the industry’s bravest (in marketing, that is) … it’s sure to be an extraordinary evening!
