ALSD Spotlight Description, Rules, and Terms


ALSD Spotlight – Awards Showcase for the Premium Seating and Venue Marketplace

ALSD Spotlight continues to highlight great accomplishments in the venue industry, with some favorite categories returning for 2023 as well as new and evolved categories to keep up with the ever-growing landscape. Get ready to show off your industry accomplishments with commemorative awards and through various ALSD media outlets.

This industry awards show judges entries based on descriptions and photos submitted by category, and is a great way to show off what you’ve done and see others' best practices and projects. And remember, every relevant entrant is featured on our website and social media, whether you win or not!

If you entered a project for Spotlight in the past and did not win a category, feel free to re-enter the same project. And even if your project did win an award last year, you may also enter any category aside from the one you won the previous year.

The top highlights, as determined by a panel of select judges, will be given the most premium treatment in our publications and will be announced through various ALSD channels.


We have selected the following categories for our judges to consider. No preferential treatment will be given to new, renovated, or existing venue spaces. All are welcome! Renderings are allowed to be included, but your entry may not contain renderings only, unless your entry is a software product or comparable.

Contest winners will be announced for the best designs in the following (for more detailed category descriptions, click here):

  • Suites

Special Considerations: If submitted by a vendor company, entry must include example of real-world execution, such as a link to a press release or case study provided by the team/venue. By submitting, you assert that you have the necessary permissions to do so.
