BSPi is an international association of bridal show producers who come together each year to share ideas and learn from each other so as to enhance the quality of bridal shows for both exhibitors and brides. This year, our conference was held in beautiful Santa Fe, New Mexico. As part of our annual conference, we share in an awards night banquet to recognize the work and talent found within our group of show producers. To be recognized at an international level is quite an honour.

Star Awards entries are judged by multiple judges in (at least) four markets that include East, West and Central USA, as well as Canada, making the process as well rounded and fair as possible.
The Stars of 2017 were as follows:

Two other remarkable rewards should also be mentioned, as they are two of the highest honours in
the bridal show industry. Our association suffered great loss with the passing of one of its best! Buzz Gallardo was the essence of what the spirit of BSPi truly is. He was a remarkable individual who instilled confidence in
every person who encountered his infectious positivity. This year the Buzz Gallardo Spirit of
BSPi Award was awarded to Amanda Andrews!
Last, but certainly not least, is the Directors Cup Award, which is the highest and most
prestigious recognition given in the industry, recognizing the industry’s single most outstanding
producers who demonstrates professionalism, character, integrity and performance. This year’s
deserving recipient was Sue Deihl.

I was honoured to chair the star awards committee and would like to congratulate our winners! I
look forward to serving this committee again in the coming year.
Best,
Bridal Show Producer International
