Head of Washington D.C.-based Andrew Roby Events wins prestigious Top 500 Award presented by BizBash Media.
Washington, DC (PRUnderground) September 15th, 2021
Andrew Roby has created a name for himself by producing immersive corporate and social events and weddings that reflect the individual personalities of his clients. He has been honored as a Top 500 U.S. Event Professional for 2021 by BizBash, the leading trade media platform for the events industry.
At the helm of a black-owned events planning company — Andrew Roby Events — Roby produces beautiful, customized events in Washington D.C., Los Angeles, and Dallas. Even as demand for his services has ballooned since he started his company 13 years ago, Roby keeps a “boutique feel” to his business by capping his client numbers so he can give each one the full attention that they deserve.
The prestigious BizBash award recognizes “meeting and event trailblazers, trendsetters, and up-and-comers” at the head of the nation’s most influential events, to include trade shows, galas, corporate parties, pop-culture events, festivals, and multi-million dollar weddings. The honorees were lauded for their noteworthy and “out of the box” planning strategies, particularly as the country learns to adjust to the ongoing pandemic.
“This is one of those ‘Holy Grail’ awards for event planners, and I’m very pleased to receive it — especially this year where all of us in the industry have felt the strain from Covid,” said Roby.
Roby said that he is particularly proud of the way that his team quickly adapted their event planning services in D.C. and beyond for pandemic-related restrictions. “We were able to use different technologies to create vibrant, beautiful hybrid and virtual events that made online guests feel as though they were right in the middle of the action.”
Roby is a powerful voice for diversity in his field, having founded the National Events Council, which works to end racial inequality in the events industry. He was honored with Connect Corporate’s “40 Under 40” Award for rising corporate event planners under the age of 40 and Wedding Wire’s Couples’ Choice Award.
Andrew Roby Events has been featured by WeddingChicks.com, The Knot, Washingtonian Magazine, and Modern Luxury, and on Logo TV, CNN, Fox, and CBS. To learn more about Andrew Roby’s award winning event planning company, visit AndrewRobyEvents.com.
