The National Association for Catering and Events (NACE) celebrates its 60TH Anniversary

NACE is the premier resource and community for catering and event professionals

June 7, 2018, Columbia, MD – The National Association for Catering and Events (NACE) is proud to commemorate 60 years of community.

When eight banquet managers from prominent New York hotels met in June 1957 to discuss their mutual challenges, a community was formed. Their goals were twofold: To solidify friendly relations between banquet managers and the broader catering industry and to provide a meeting place for banquet managers to discuss matters within the profession.

“When I think of NACE, I think of a community of professionals that help each other excel. A place where members meet as colleagues and through common interests and networking, become lifelong friends.  None of this is by accident. The formula of NACE is in the continuous pursuit of professional excellence through education and collaboration. That is something worth celebrating. For myself and many fellow members, NACE membership is a point of pride.” said Dr. Donnell Bayot, NACE national president.

In 2017, NACE embarked on a new strategic plan, creating a shared vision and working to accomplish common goals while moving forward together. The development of this plan has reinforced the belief that NACE members truly drive the success of the industry, and it is NACE’s goal to provide unparalleled resources and a strong, vibrant community.

NACE is celebrating the occasion with a campaign that encompasses a Diamond Gala at the 2018 NACE Experience Conference in Palm Springs, California on July 24, 2018, a logo, photos and historical timeline recognize this special occasion.
