The NAIOP Washington State Chapter’s Night of the Stars Awards Program is an annual gala dedicated to recognizing exceptional individuals and companies in our industry and the projects in which our members are involved. The goal of the program is to identify outstanding real estate developments and activities in a variety of market types and the individuals who conceived of, took risk, sponsored, supported, and made the projects happen. We encourage anyone on the extended project team to nominate projects, developers and deals and to engage the owner or sponsor and other team members in the process.  The Night of the Stars Committee seeks to provide recognition for members of the entire project team and include them all in the annual celebration of the industry.

About the Process

The Night of the Stars Awards Program is a two-step nomination process.  From June 1st to July 15, NAIOP Washington solicits online for project and firm nominations. In Phase 1, we ask for basic contact and project information, detailed team member information, a 500-word summary of the nomination and up to four photos.  Nominations that are accepted will be contacted by July 29 to move to the next round. Phase 2, which runs from July 29 to August 17, requests additional description, narrative, and supporting exhibits for projects and firm accomplishments. On Aug. 26, finalists will be notified and receive the presentation day, time(s) and additional details. All finalists have the opportunity to make an in-person presentation to a panel of judges on the mornings of September 10 and 11 at the offices of GLY Construction in Bellevue. Presentations for each project/category will be limited to approximately 5 minutes.
