2023 Awards Ceremony: What to Expect

Moody McCarthy

Are you as excited as we are for the night of Thursday, November 30th? Since this is a new event we want share with you what to expect.

Please quickly read through the items below. If you have any questions, please contact us and we’ll get right back to you.

Ticket Info

Tickets are required to be purchased in advance. Note, we will not be selling tickets at the event or allowing entry without a ticket.

In the dashboard, make sure each of your tickets are assigned and include UNIQUE contact information for each guest. Unassigned tickets or tickets with duplicate contact details are not eligible to win door prizes.

Tickets will be emailed/texted directly to each guest by Wednesday at 7pm.

What to Wear

Dress in the best you have! At the awards ceremony you’ll see fancy gowns and dapper tuxedos. This is a night to celebrate you, Orlando’s Best, so dress like it!


Doors open at 7:00pm and we expect to end around 9:00pm.

Location and Parking

Rosen Event Center

Our event is at the Rosen Event Center at 11184 S Apopka Vineland Rd in Orlando. However, don’t confuse it with the Rosen Centre hotel. That is not the same place!

Upon arrival look for the sigh that says Rosen JCC. Parking is FREE and right next to the entrance of the building.

Door Prizes

If you signed up to bring an approved door prize, please bring it with you to the event and hand it in at the registration table.

If you’d like to sponsor a door prize, submit your door prize here.

Red Carpet

After registration you’ll walk the red carpet. We’ve hired an experienced photographer to capture the moment for your entire team. Please, no selfie’s on the red carpet before the event starts. You’ll be able to do that after the program is over.


The caterer is providing a bar that serves beer and wine. If you’re a VIP ticket holder, we’ll give you a drink ticket at the registration table.


The program will begin with a welcome by Brodie Tyler and then live comedy entertainment by Moody McCarthy. We’re flying him in from NYC to entertain us for the evening!

Awards Presentation

Although we have nearly 300 categories in this year’s awards, at the awards ceremony we will only be announcing the results for about 50 of them. Basically, those who purchased tickets will hear their category’s results.

NOTE: If you’re bringing a guest who represents a different candidate, please let us know right away so we can make sure their category is also announced.

Once your category is announced, please make your way to the stage for another photo opportunity with Brodie handing you a certificate. Bring the entire team, if you like! Don’t worry though… you are not expected to give a speech. It’s just a photo opp.

Announcing Winners

If you’re unable to make it to our awards ceremony, that’s unfortunate because it’s going to be a fun evening! That said, we will be announcing the winners for all categories on our website the very next day, so stay tuned.
