Established in 1991.

In 1988 when Tim Lundy, CSEP first envisioned the Allie Awards, he knew the city of Atlanta was fast becoming one of the leaders in the nation's event and hospitality industry. Today his dream is a reality and the Southeast comes together annually on a very special night that celebrates event professionals and companies of excellence – while also fostering the dreams of tomorrow’s rising stars.
In 2015 the Allie Awards became a certified 501 (c)(3) public charity to further support rising stars at the college level in hospitality education programs. To date, the Allie Awards have awarded over $15,000 in scholarships to best-in-class students. This support could not have been possible without the support of Georgia's live events community. While the Allie Awards event is the primary fundraiser that supports the scholarship program, the organization accepts donations throughout the year to provide as many opportunities to students as possible.
