Toronto Special Events takes home awards
Toronto Special Events - Festivals & Events Ontario, a provincial
association for special events, showcased and recognized the practices of its
members in an annual awards ceremony Saturday night. Toronto Special Events
walked away from the FEO Achievement Awards with four major awards for
Sponsorship and Marketing initiatives for its properties.

Taking three of the four awards was one of the nations' premiere winter
festivals, Toronto Winterfest. The marketing campaign for the 2002 edition of
the festival, which ran February, 2002, was acknowledged for Best Print
Campaign, Best Official Program, and Best Internet Site.

Designs in Ice presented by Scotiabank, a three-day ice-carving exhibition and
competition took the Most Innovative Sponsorship award. The 2002 edition of
this festival, which ran in December at Nathan Phillips Square, was inspired
by, in a partnership with Alliance Atlantis Motion Picture Distribution, The
Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, coinciding with the December 18 release of
the major motion picture.

Toronto Special Events celebrates the city year-round by producing events and
festivals that showcase the best Toronto has to offer in music, art, culture,
sports, food, theatre and spectacle. From the frosty festivities of Winterfest
to the massive merriment of the Celebrate Toronto Street Festival, Toronto
Special Events creates events that get people into the city and onto the street.
