Cleveland, OH – 4/14/14 – Solus Lighting LTD was honored with three ISES Ohio WOW Awards in the categories of Best Wedding, Best Public Event, and Best Team Effort. The awards ceremony was held Friday, April 11th at the 21c Museum and Hotel in downtown Cincinnati.

ISES Ohio Wow is an annual awards program created to showcase, acknowledge, and honor the special events industry’s finest examples of creativity, planning, strategic management, resourcefulness, and successful solutions throughout the state of Ohio. To maintain fairness in the judging, the submissions are entirely anonymous and are judged by event professionals from another region of the United States. This year, judges for the awards were located in Minneapolis, St. Paul and St. Louis. The ISES Ohio Wow Awards celebrate the extraordinary efforts, performance, and outstanding contributions of industry professionals – rewarding excellence and recognizing the best.

“We are truly flattered to receive these esteemed awards from fellow event professionals,” stated Maureen E. Patterson (Lead Designer at Solus Lighting LTD). Solus Lighting is one of twelve companies from the Greater Cleveland Area that were honored with ISES Ohio WOW awards this year. Having this many cutting edge event professionals in the area is a great advantage for the city. As the Greater Cleveland Area continues to boom, individuals and organizations are planning larger events than ever before. The Best Team Effort Award showcased a unique venue (The Cleveland Museum of Natural History), themed décor (Borrow Rentals), extravagant settings (Event Source), inspired menus (Zach Bruell Events), wide spread audio and video reinforcement (Hughie’s Events Production Services), and innovative lighting (Solus Lighting) for Footprints in Time – the bi-annual fundraiser hosted by the Women’s Committee of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. Patterson added, “We are fortunate to have a variety of vendors in Cleveland that are true specialists in their areas of expertise. When these genuine professionals team up, the event becomes truly spectacular.”
