The Roof Terrace at The Kennedy Center hosted the inaugural Collaborate America Awards, the nation’s first recognition program to acknowledge and honor event strategists and organizations. The September 27 event was also the launch of The Roof Terrace as a daytime conference center, managed by CxRA.
David Adler, Co-chair of Collaborate America and CEO of BizBash, the ultimate collaborator, came up with the idea of these awards to recognize unsung heroes who are masters at collaboration. “What better place to honor excellence in our various vertical market industries – especially in the arts – than atop one of DC’s most iconic venues? These honorees understand the art and science of bringing people together to solve problems and ultimately change the world,” said Adler.
