ACCENT New Orleans, Inc. Wins Prestigious ADMEI Achievement Award

February and March are traditionally award season, but that doesn’t just apply for music and movies. We are honored to win Association of Destination Management Executives International’s Best Four Week Challenge Event Award for our winning submission “Drew Brees Isn’t the Only One Who Can Throw a Hail Mary in New Orleans!” highlighting one of the great events we pulled off last spring in only 2 weeks!


The award-winning event was in March 2022 so to add challenges, the dates were during the busy festival season and NCAA Final Four Tournament. Limited resources after the pandemic were already committed and the client was traveling internationally which limited access and delayed approval turnaround time. Challenges were overcome to produce two evening events and a private chef demo for execs that turned into a full dinner the day before. The client was thrilled, and attendees had a wonderful time!


Strong relationships helped secure the business and execute it. This is the work we do on a daily basis for our clients…but more notice does lower everyone’s stress levels!
