The Oscars of the Food World

EE is proud to once again have acted as the technical producer for the 2011 James Beard Awards; a program deemed “the Oscars of the food world,” by Time Magazine. The awards were held May 9th in New York City and featured several stars of the culinary world, both up and comers and those who are well established.
For the fifth consecutive year, EE produced the media awards and gala awards, managing audio, video, lighting, electrical distribution, staging and union labor for two awards shows: one at e-space in NY co-hosted by television personalities Tim Allen and Gail Simmons and the other at Avery Fisher Hall, hosted by Top Chef’s Tom Colicchio.
