A1 Party Nominated In Two Categories For 2015 The Special Events Magazine Gala Awards.

Special Events Magazine has announced the nominees for the 2015 Gala Awards and A1 Party was nominated in two categories. The winners will be named at a gala celebration on January 8 at The Special Event in Anaheim, California.

The Gala Awards is the oldest and most prestigious award in event production1 and has been around since 1986. This year Southern California based rental company A1 Party has been nominated for 'Best Tent Installation' for their work on the inaugural 'Fame and Philanthropy' Oscar Award Party in Beverly Hills, California and for 'Best Rental Support' for their coordination of all rental items during the back-to-back 2014 Rose Bowl and Bowl Championship Series games' Official Alumni Tailgates at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.

The Fame and Philanthropy party required the installation of a 24,000 square foot tent complex with sub floor and a rain plain. Crews faced high winds, rain and muddy, water saturated grounds. It was the first time a tent installation of this size was attempted on the event site. The high profile event was attended by celebrities such as James Cameron, Charlize Theron and had a musical performance by R&B artist NE-YO and a DJ session by Paris Hilton.

The Rose Bowl and BCS Championship games' Official Alumni Tailgates were held less than a week apart from each other and each event required tenting, catering, and dining equipment for a combined total of 40,000 fans. Between the end of the first event and the beginning of the second, crews had only 6 days to strike the Rose Bowl game's tailgates setup, clean the equipment, and return to stadium to install the BSC Championship's tailgates.
